The inscription on the award reads "In Grateful Recognition of Your Efforts in the Pursuit of Justice." We are honored to receive the award.
Danalynn was recently awarded the National Legal Aid and Defender Association’s Life in the Balance Achievement Award.
This award is given yearly by the NLADA to an attorney or investigator who has shown exceptional dedication to death penalty defense. The Award reads: in recognition of her tireless commitment to ending the death penalty in America, fearlessly laboring both as an attorney and to teach investigators, mitigation specialists, and lawyers the value of thorough mitigation investigation and defense teamwork.
Danalynn has embodied effective advocacy with respect for every client and their unique circumstances, first as a staff attorney at the Louisiana Crisis Assistance Center in New Orleans and then by having the vision and courage to create the non-profit Gulf Region Advocacy Center out of her home in Houston. Danalynn has been described by her colleagues as “a force of nature” who has raised the quality of capital defense representation and provided a model for cooperative team defense that has saved countless lives.
