For the second time, J. Parker Miller, a Principal with Beasley Allen, was named to the Law360 Rising Stars list. Joining Parker this year is Danielle Ward Mason, who also is a Principal with the firm. Law360’s Rising Stars profiles the top legal talent younger than 40. The winners are comprised of top litigators and dealmakers practicing at a level usually seen from veteran attorneys.
Danielle has been with the firm in our Mass Torts section since 2009. She is currently working on the talcum powder trial team that secured a $72 million verdict for the family of our client, Jacqueline Fox. The talcum powder litigation consists of thousands of clients who claim that Johnson & Johnson knowingly promoted a carcinogenic product, baby powder and Shower to Shower, to women resulting in 1,400 deaths per year from ovarian cancer. Danielle is also the lead attorney for Reglan litigation, which involves claims that the drug Reglan is associated with the development of uncontrolled muscle movements, a permanent and incurable condition known as Tardive Dyskinesia.
Parker joined Beasley Allen in 2008 and currently works in our Toxic Torts section. Parker was a part of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill litigation, where he represented the State of Alabama against BP, Halliburton and Transocean. Parker served as co-counsel to Alabama Governor Robert Bentley, was deputized a Deputy Attorney General of the State of Alabama by Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange, and served as the lead Beasley Allen day-to-day litigator for the State of Alabama. Parker was a point person for Alabama before the Court, coordinated all discovery matters, was Alabama’s architect for the State’s economic and property damage models, and served as a member of Alabama’s settlement negotiation team. After months of intense litigation, BP agreed to pay the State of Alabama $2.3 billion in what is considered to be one of the most significant settlements in Alabama’s history. In addition, Transocean agreed to pay the State of Alabama $20 million.
We are pleased to have excellent lawyers like Parker and Danielle working at Beasley Allen. I’m sure we’re going to continue to see great things from both of them in the future.
