Entrusted by the VFW

The Herd Law Firm, PLLC (“HLF”) has partnered with Baird Mandalas Brockstedt & Federico (“BMBF”), who is leading a group of law firms and attorneys, many of whom are veterans themselves or have dedicated their careers to representing veterans.

Welcome VFW members, loved ones, and others affected by the toxic water contamination at Camp Lejeune.

We are honored to be entrusted by the VFW to provide legal representation to veterans and their families for injuries caused by the toxic water at Camp Lejeune.

As part of our commitment to doing right by those who have served our country, you and your family will not pay any up-front costs or fees, and the contingency fees paid to us from any award will be capped at 25%.
