Madeleine Smith

Madeleine established Smith & Tapper Lawyers after working for many years as an employee solicitor and managing practitioner (criminal law).

Madeleine has worked in both Victoria and Queensland, and has represented clients in some of Australia’s most disadvantaged and remote communities.

Madeleine is a fierce advocate for her clients and a firm believer that justice requires more than the mere right to be heard in court. She has been influential in supporting Smith & Tapper’s pro-bono practice and developing our relationship with Victorian Legal Aid.

Beyond the court room Madeleine enjoys walks in the park with her dog Cleopatra and strong black coffee.
