Trial Lawyer Deon Tedder Joins RPWB

Trial attorney Deon Tedder has joined Rogers, Patrick, Westbrook & Brickman, LLC, where he will focus on personal injury, mass torts and criminal defense work out of the firm’s Mount Pleasant and Columbia offices.

Tedder joins RPWB after working at David Aylor Law Offices for the past five years, where he helped many clients in the Charleston area with personal injury and criminal defense matters. He is honored as a 2022-2023 Rising Star in personal injury litigation by Super Lawyers and as a Top 40 under 40 personal injury attorney by the National Black Lawyers Association.

“We are thrilled to have Deon join us,” said Nina Fields Britt, managing attorney of RPWB. “He has an outstanding reputation as a trial lawyer and as a person who is genuinely community service-oriented. He brings a lot to the table for his clients and also for our law firm.”

A resident of North Charleston, Tedder has spent much of his life devoted to public service. He currently serves District 109 in the S.C. House of Representatives and is running for an open seat in the S.C. Senate (District 42). But his interest in being a voice and public servant for the underserved goes back much further.

While in college, he worked in the office of the late Senator Edward (Ted) Kennedy, where he assisted on the Health, Education, Labor & Pension (HELP) Committee. As a law student at the University of South Carolina School of Law, he advocated for the least fortunate among us by serving as a Guardian Ad Litem for Richland County’s Court Appointed Special Advocates Program (CASA).

Tedder also represented indigent clients in courtroom proceedings in Magistrate Court through the University of South Carolina’s Criminal Law Practice Clinic. He served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable L. Casey Manning in Columbia.

Outside of practicing law, he can be found volunteering at community events, mentoring young students, and advocating for all South Carolinians to have a better quality of life.

Tedder is a proud graduate of South Carolina State University Honors College and the University of South Carolina School of Law. He is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.

In addition to being licensed to practice law in South Carolina, Tedder also is licensed in North Carolina.

    Congress Passes Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Law

    Over a 34-year period, many thousands of Marines and their families were exposed to dangerous water contamination at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. After a long wait, justice may finally be in sight.

    Congress approved bi-partisan legislation on Tuesday night that will clear the way for veterans and their families to seek compensation in federal court for health problems caused by decades of water contamination at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina.

    The Honoring our PACT Act of 2022 is expected to be signed into law by President Biden, and will mark a major expansion of veterans’ healthcare. In addition to the well-publicized help for burn pit victims, it includes provisions that allow veterans and their families to seek financial compensation for cancer or other serious illnesses caused by consuming contaminated water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987.

    If you served, lived, or worked at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days during that time period and subsequently developed cancer, Parkinson’s Disease, or a number of other serious conditions, you may be eligible for financial relief. The new law will enable veterans and their families to file suit in federal court in the Eastern District of North Carolina.

    RPWB attorneys are proud to represent current and former members of our nation’s armed forces, including those harmed by dangerous water contamination at Camp Lejeune. Our law firm is investigating potential cases on behalf of men and women who served, lived, or worked at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987, for at least 30 days and subsequently developed cancer or other serious medical issues.

    Water testing at Camp Lejeune in the 1980s revealed the presence of several toxic substances in the water. The main pollutants in Camp Lejeune’s water from 1957 to 1987 were Tetrachloroethylene (PCE) and Trichloroethylene (TCE). Exposure to these substances can cause such cancers as kidney cancer, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, leukemia, liver cancer and bladder cancer.  Exposure can also lead to Parkinson’s disease, systemic sclerosis/scleroderma and major cardiac birth defects. Many thousands of people bathed in and consumed contaminated water while assigned to Camp Lejeune.
