The Eastern District of North Carolina judges overseeing the Camp Lejeune litigation issued a court order on July 19, 2023 naming the lead lawyers to “fairly, effectively, and efficiently represent the interests of all plaintiffs” before the court.
J. Edward Bell III, of the Bell Legal Group, and six co-lead counsels will lead the plaintiff attorneys in the litigation that could become one of the biggest mass torts in history.

Camp Lejeune and The Probate Pro
The Probate Pro is providing probate coordination and probate legal services to thousands of plaintiff families that were impacted by the water contamination and Camp Lejeune litigation.
Sadly, many people have died before receiving the benefits that will be available from the government. And, many have died from unrelated causes. Either way, claims for benefits can be made through their probate estate.
When someone dies and there are benefits available, in most states a person must get appointed by the probate court to have legal standing to pursue the lawsuit. Generally, if the person eligible to receive benefits has died, a personal representative must be appointed by the probate court to claim the benefits.
