Madelyn E. Dukes

Greenville, SC

Madelyn’s practice focuses on various litigation matters in MGC’s Greenville office. “I pride myself in taking time to listen to my clients so that I understand the root of their problems,” she adds. “Doing so allows me to create or find innovative solutions to their problems.” Prior to joining the firm, Madelyn handled plaintiff’s personal injury pre-litigation and litigation matters, as well as premises liability, medical malpractice and employment litigation.

“I think the most important thing that clients need and expect from their attorneys is communication,” says Madelyn. “Clients rely on us as counsel to guide them through some of the most difficult times of their lives. Being accessible and available to give a client the information needed to assess a situation and move forward with best practices is key to being a great attorney.”

Outside of the office, Madelyn serves as an alumni coach of the Mock Trial Bar at the University of South Carolina School of Law. She also enjoys spending as much time on the waterways of the Lowcountry as possible, and, when not in the office, can usually be found spoiling her dogs—a rescued Silky Terrier and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
