Pam Madere Concludes Presidency of the Texas Association of Defense Counsel


Jackson Walker congratulates Austin partner Pamela Madere on her service as President of the Texas Association of Defense Counsel (TADC), one of the two largest state organizations of civil litigation attorneys in the U.S. Prior to her election as the 2018-2019 President, Pam served on the TADC Board for 20 years.

As President, Pam successfully led the TADC through the passage of legislation during the 86th Legislative Session, and her more than 50-member Board of Directors worked diligently to oversee the TADC’s efforts to promote fairness in the judicial system and the right to jury trial for all citizens.

“The TADC has a long-lasting, strong commitment to protecting the integrity and accessibility of our civil justice system, and our accomplishments at the Legislature reflect that,” Pam said.
