Madison Mackay is an associate attorney at Muchnicki & Bittner, LLP. Madison initially became interested in immigration law after interning in the United States Senate during immigration reform debates. In her pursuit to learn the Spanish language and more about Latino and Hispanic culture, Madison spent one semester studying at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile in Santiago, Chile. In Santiago, Madison immersed herself in Chilean culture, living with a host family and direct enrolling in the top Chilean university.
After graduating from college, Madison attended law school at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, where she was the President of the Immigration Law Society and the Vice President of the Latino Law Student Association. After her first year in law school, Madison began clerking for Muchnicki & Bittner, LLP and started working directly with clients, writing briefs for family based immigration petitions, and drafting asylum applications. In the summer of her second year, Madison received a fellowship from the Moritz Public Interest Law Foundation to clerk for the largest non-profit legal organization in Chicago, in LAF’s Immigration and Migrant Worker’s Rights Group. Here, Madison helped prepare U-Visa and T-Visa petitions for the victims of crime and human trafficking, and participated in community outreach to migrant workers around rural Illinois.
