Madeline
Bergman

Madeline joined Social Media Victims Law Center in March 2022 after spending approximately two years at Bergman Draper Oslund Udo as a full-time attorney as well as doing her internship there. She graduated from Linfield College with a bachelor’s degree in political science. In law school, she clerked for Waters Kraus and Paul in Los Angeles for two summers. Through her involvement in these two firms, she focused on and gained invaluable experience in the field of toxic tort litigation. The insights collected from her time there helped stem her passion for holding corporations accountable for the injuries they cause.
