Mason Firm, LLC Moves Headquarters to Newark’s One Gateway Center

Mason Firm, LLC founded by Antiguan native Eldonie S. Mason, Esq. is now headquartered in Newark, calling One Gateway Center home. Eldonie made the decision to move from East Brunswick to Newark to be part of the community that was on a mission to make Newark a vibrant cultural and entertainment hub.

Owning a law firm and serving underserved communities have always been a dream of Eldonie’s. At 11 years old, while she was still living on her small Caribbean island, she made up her mind that she wanted to be a lawyer in America. At 18 she left home with one suitcase, a bible and $1,000.00 in order to pursue her dreams. The going was not easy. She had to figure out how she was going to pay for college and law school.

Financial aid and student loans were her saving grace. It provided the monies she needed to pursue her dreams. That money was not wasted. She graduated from New Jersey City University, magna cum laude two and a half years after she started then went on to graduate cum laude from the University of Miami School of Law at 25.

When the legal market started shrinking she was in transition between jobs. She kept getting rejection letter after rejection letter saying “you have impressive credentials but…” Not one to wait around for life to happen, she did not leave her island to just wait around, she founded Mason Firm, LLC at 28.

Today she brings with her over 13 years of knowledge and experience as a judicial intern, litigator, transactional lawyer and arbitrator to the Newark community as it too is in transition.

“I believe that Newark will become the next entertainment mecca and that it would be a great place for my firm to put down roots and grow. I look forward to getting to know and serving the business and creative communities,” says Eldonie. She also hopes that her story will inspire fellow immigrants and others that anything is possible once you have faith, hope and believe.
