Red Hill Claims Against the Navy
You knew your family was not well.
You smelled it in the water. You saw a sheen. And you and your family felt it: nausea, skin rashes, sore throats, burning eyes. You told them things weren’t right: the doctors, the VA. They didn’t believe you. They told you everything was fine. But they were wrong: there was poison in the water.
Fuel leaks in May and November 2021, and times before that that the Navy did not admit. You have lost so much. You just want your family to get well. Just Well Law and our partners represent families against the government that made them sick.
We are currently representing families who ingested jet fuel (and other contaminants) because of the Navy’s negligence at Red Hill.

History of Military Failures at Red Hill
We hope you will join us in the effort to hold the military accountable
This water contamination crisis is merely the most recent failure in a series of problems with Oahu’s Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility that dates back decades. Since World War II when the Red Hill USTs were constructed, the US military has ignored warnings from experts and local leaders about the enormous risk to people who rely on the water supply under Red Hill. The Navy has covered up their mistakes and dismissed your concerns, resulting in a crisis that has cost many of you and your families your homes and your health.

We know that our clients need to recover financially to rebuild their health and their lives. We stand ready to partner with you on your own health and recovery journey. And in the process, we hope to make a difference for families and military communities around the globe.
Together, we will send a message to the United States: clean water is a national security issue. To maintain our position of readiness, we must protect our families and military communities from harm. We must provide safe housing and safe water. Our men and women in uniform cannot fight for our country when they are sick. And their families and surrounding community cannot support the mission if they are sick.
Who are We
We are fierce advocates with a passion for environmental health and our military communities.
Kristina Baehr is a national trial lawyer who represents sick families against the companies and governments that made them sick. After Princeton and Yale Law, she worked her way up the ranks to partner at a national trial firm. Their teams represented clients against big pharma and tech companies in state, federal and international courts, and their victories led to over $1 billion in revenue for their clients. She then transitioned to the US Attorneys’ Office, where she represented federal agencies like the Army, Air Force, and VA in personal injury cases like this one. And when her own family experienced toxic exposure, she left the Department of Justice to build the personal injury firm she couldn’t find.
