Mason Boling

Mason is a member of KMBSP’s Mass Torts team, which represents plaintiffs in personal injury actions against pharmaceutical and medical device companies. He was named to the 2017 Mid-South Super Lawyers Rising Stars list for products liability work. Mason is also the Firm’s principal appellate counsel, handling appeals on a variety of issues in both state and federal courts. Additionally, Mason represents victims of civil rights abuses, including those mistreated by police officers and jail staff.

Notable cases:

  • In re Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation (S.D. W. Va) (attorney for more than one hundred women injured by bladder slings and other types of transvaginal mesh, litigating more than a dozen bellwether cases)
  • Guenther v. Griffin Construction Company, Inc., 846 F.3d 979 (8th Cir. 2017) (appeal) (heirs of deceased client could continue a discrimination lawsuit under the Americans with Disabilities Act)
  • Morris v. State, 2016 Ark. App. 546 (appeal) (client granted new trial because police interrogated him without reading Miranda rights)
  • Leeka v. State, 2015 Ark. 183, 461 S.W.3d 331 (appeal) (client granted new trial because the State is required to prove a criminal mental state for DWI-drug offenses)

As a law student, Mason clerked for the Civil Department of the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office and for Benton County Circuit Court Judge Doug Schrantz before joining KMBSP as a law clerk in 2013. He also served as a Note & Comment Editor for the Arkansas Law Review and was part of a team of two students that drafted briefs and conducted oral arguments before the United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, earning a victory for their client in a section 1983 prisoners’ rights case—Colwell v. Bannister, 763 F.3d 1060 (9th Cir. 2014). In 2014, the Arkansas State Board of Bar Examiners recognized Mason for the highest score on the July 2014 Bar Exam.

Before law school, Mason attended Hendrix College, where he received the 2009 Dr. Jon A. Ziegler Constitutional Law Award and studied abroad at the University of Oxford in the UK.
