About Me

Madeline Young is a litigator in Chapman Law Group’s professional liability and corrections practices. In her role, she represents and zealously defends physicians and mid-level practitioners in civil rights, medical malpractice, business-to-business, governmental immunity, and use-of-force matters at the federal and state levels.

Her legal background includes complex litigation, insurance defense, appellate law, and commercial disputes. As a key member of defense trial teams, Madeline’s track record includes several no-cause verdicts, summary dispositions/judgements, and voluntary dismissals. In addition, she has a built a standing in effectively negotiating complex litigation cases during various mediation hearings, which have led to successful settlements.

Madeline’s legal career includes working in private practices and as part of in-house counsel for business law and transactional matters, such as products liability, supply chain legalities, joint ventures, contract terms, articles of organization/incorporation, and class-action lawsuit management.

For Madeline, the yearning to become a zealous defense litigator stems from firsthand experience. Her parents own four restaurants, so Madeline has been able to see the effect a lawsuit can have on people and businesses — none more so than those in the medical field.

“It’s easy to be passionate about what I do as an attorney, because I help those who help others,” Madeline explains. “Every time I work on a case, I build a relationship with the defendant healthcare provider and I see first-hand the compassion and thoughtfulness behind his or her medical judgment. These defendants inspire me to achieve the best outcome possible, allowing them to resume their lives caring for others.”

In her free time, Madeline helps in coaching the Mock Trial TYLA (Texas Young Lawyers Association) National Team, for which she served as the 2017 National Team Midwest captain and regional finalist. In addition, Madeline placed third as a first-time competitor at Case Western Classic Mock Trial Competition in fall 2016. She also has a background in teaching students at Wayne State University Law School (her alma mater) about evidentiary issues, building direct examinations, cross-examinations, opening statements, and closing arguments.

She holds distinctions from Wayne State, such as being recipient of the Bronze Key Academic Award, serving as Entrepreneurship and Business Law Society Vice President (2015-16), and being a student attorney for the school’s 2016 Free Legal Aid Clinic.
