Madison joined Donaldson Callif Perez in 2021. Madison works in all areas of the firm’s entertainment and media law practice, including rights acquisition, clearance, and distribution. Prior to joining the firm, Madison worked in Business and Legal Affairs at Media Arts Lab, where she advised on all aspects of production legal for a number of international marketing campaigns, and at Verizon Media Group, where she handled negotiations relating to development, financing, and distribution of the company’s unscripted slate.

Madison received her B.A. in Political Science from Loyola Marymount University in 2010. After her time at LMU, Madison moved to South Carolina and enrolled in the Charleston School of Law, where she focused on constitutional law courses. After graduating summa cum laude from Charleston School of Law in 2013, Madison returned to Los Angeles and began her own boutique practice, where she counseled a roster of clients, which included apparel start-ups, co-working spaces, and an entertainment-related non-profit organization on a variety of legal matters.

In Fall 2023, Madison began teaching as an adjunct professor with USC’s Gould School of Law. Her Entertainment Law course – part of the Master of Studies in Law program – provides nuanced insight into the challenges and opportunities facing the entertainment industry and the role of legal professionals in navigating them.

Madison is passionate about documentary films. She currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two children, and dog.
