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.

Following her graduation from law school, Madeline moved to Tel Aviv, Israel where she developed data privacy policies for a technology startup. Her experience as Privacy Officer provided her with vital problem-solving skills, as well as exposure to the fields of GDPR and data privacy.

Madeline is an avid equestrian in the sport of show jumping and competes at an international level.

Madeline is also involved in philanthropy. She is a board member of the Seattle American Jewish Committee where she helps combat antisemitism and bigotry. Through her involvement, she works with governments and world leaders to stand up for human rights.

In her free time, Madeline enjoys skiing in the winter, hiking with her dog Ari, and spending time with her family, friends, and horses.
