Danae N. Benton joined the Pharmaceutical Litigation Group at the Dallas offices of Baron & Budd in 2018. Throughout her career, she has focused her practice on pharmaceutical and medical device litigation, representing individuals whose lives have been egregiously affected by defective implants, harmful medical devices and dangerous prescription drugs.
Growing up on a ranch in a small central Texas town, Ms. Benton’s parents taught her the value of hard work, integrity and humility. She reflects that as an adult she has fused the small-town values with which she grew up with her own “modern style” of activism. “I like to think of myself as a fighter for justice. I take pride in my work and feel honored to join a team that fights to protect what is right. Those values resonate with me and impact my law practice. The client comes first.”
Ms. Benton earned her undergraduate degree from Baylor University in Waco, Texas, before graduating from Western Michigan University Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan, where she made the Dean’s Honor List multiple times. While pursuing her legal education, Ms. Benton was an active member of Moot Court and competed on the school’s National team.
At Baron & Budd, Ms. Benton is involved in every aspect of the client experience; from case acquisition and marketing, through client education and empowerment, to fostering compassionate client-staff relationships. From the start of her career, Ms. Benton has been dedicated to ensuring that her clients receive the highest level of representation, and to that end was named one of the Top Lawyers in Houston for 2015 by H Texas Magazine.
