Danielle W. Mason works in the firm's Mass Torts section, investigating claims involving dangerous drugs and medical devices. Danielle graduated cum laude from Faulkner University's Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in 2007. She interned at the Federal Defender Middle District of Alabama during law school, from November 2007-April 2008, and worked as a court-appointed defense attorney for the Federal Defender Middle District of Alabama following her graduation until June 2009, when she joined the staff at Beasley Allen. She is licensed in the Middle, Southern and Northern District Courts in Alabama. A native of Montgomery, Danielle attended Jefferson Davis High School and graduated from Auburn Montgomery with a Bachelor's degree in Economics in 1999, followed by a Masters of Business Administration in 2001. She began a career in commercial banking, spending 5 years with Regions Bank and 2 years at Compass Bank, but says her heart was always calling her to the practice of law. "It's always been something that I've wanted to do," Danielle says. "I have a love for people and a genuine passion for the law. It is the type of profession that allows me to get really invested in a cause and to work and fight for that cause. It's what attracted me to Beasley Allen, because our work means something and we can really make a difference in people's lives." While at Jones Law School, Danielle was a member of the trial advocacy team and competed in the Buffalo-Niagara Mock Trial Competition in the National Semi-Finals in 2007. She was Senior Editor of the Jones Law Review, was on the Dean's List, and was selected to Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. Danielle worked as a Teaching Assistant for Don Garner (Torts) and tutored first-year students in Torts law. She also served as a Research Assistant for Shirley Howell (Family Law). Among her scholastic achievement awards are Best Oral Advocate, Best Paper - Race, Poverty and Death Penalty Seminar; and Best Team - Pretrial Practice. As a student, she also wrote a paper titled Racism on Our Juries: The Impossibility of Impartiality in Capital Cases, which was recently published in the Jones Law Review. She is a member of the Alabama State Bar, the American Association for Justice, the Alabama Association for Justice and Young Lawyers. She currently serves on the Auburn University Montgomery Alumni Board of Directors and the Alabama Civil Justice Foundation Junior Board of Directors, and serves as a mentor for two students at Jones School of Law through its Career Services Student Mentor Program. Danielle is married to Dwan R. Mason, and they have two sons, Jordan, 12, and Jaxon, 2 ½. She enjoys spending time with her family in her free time.
