Madison understands the diverse ways that relationships and families can break down, and helps her clients move beyond their conflicts to build new, positive futures. She works with clients who want a practical, constructive process and a long-term solution that enables them to co-parent effectively and move forward with their lives.
Recognizing that divorce is a very personal experience, Madison focuses on the unique needs of every client. She explains the law clearly to clients so they understand how it affects them and can then make the right decisions. From experience, Madison knows there is more than enough distress in relationship breakdowns; her aim is to protect clients and what is important to them without generating additional conflict or unnecessary costs. At the end of the process, Madison hopes clients can look back with pride on how they handled matters and feel more confident of their lives ahead.
Madison specialises in handling divorce proceedings for clients, and in drafting formal settlements for clients who have agreed on their financial split in mediation. She also advises on and creates Cohabitation Agreements for couples who are living together.
Away from her practice Madison is a passionate member of the roller derby community, traveling around the country and Europe for tournaments and events. She also enjoys creative writing, and is currently working on a book for young adults.

[Madison] has the loveliest, unassuming manner which instantly made me feel she was there to help at any time. She was efficient and kept me up to date with progress, chasing things without me prompting”
