  • Court of Appeal case FB -v- Princess Alexandra Hosptial NHS Trust (2017) IEWCA Civ 334 (£4 million settlement)
  • Admission of liability and causation ans Judgment enetered in several multi-million pound child brain injury cases
  • Specialist Medical Negligence Panel appointments with The Law Society and AvMA
  • Recommended in Chambers publication (Band 1 in Chambers and Partners 2019 and Legal 500, 2020)
  • Leading a Cinical Negliegence Team that "punches well above its weight".  Madeline is a "...collosus in the field.  She has year on year grown into a key player in the market" (Legal 500, 2020)
  • "A solicitor who is at first a human being, then a highly skilled professional with an incredible knowledge of the law and how it can be applied to benefit the customers and make poeple's lives better.  Fantastic - will recommend a million times over to other claimants!" (Legal 500, 2020)
  • "Willingness to unselfishy fight for a cause" (Legal 500, 2020)
  • "She's wonderful with clients, very reassuring and willing to go the extra mile for them" (Chambers 2018)

Why Medical Negligence? The work is challenging but we are committed to fighting for justice and providing an exceptional, client-focused service to bereaved families and injured persons.  I received a letter from a client that epitomises my desire to do the very best I can for my clients, “I can't thank you enough for all the hard work that you put in for us to get the closure that we needed. You're a star. Too emotional to say anymore but thank you from the bottom of my heart” – that’s what makes the job so special for me.
