Madison was raised in Johnston, Iowa, where she was trained at an early age to answer the phone at her mama’s law firm. She received her undergraduate B.A. degree at Simpson College where she helped teach a class on Harry Potter and religion and studied in England. In 2013, Madison started law school at the University of New Hampshire School of Law. She was selected to be in the Daniel Webster Scholar Honors Program, which gave her special preparation to be ready to represent actual people on her first day as a lawyer.

In college and law school, Madison developed her passion for bringing people together by doing Interfaith work for Simpson College’s Religious Life Community, volunteering her time as a chat partner for students seeking to improve their English skills, and mentoring new law students. She was a member of the Women’s Law Student Association and the American Constitution Society, worked for plaintiff-side employment and personal injury law firms, and received a fellowship to help low-income clients at New Hampshire Legal Assistance. Madison earned her J.D. in May 2016, when she was also sworn into the New Hampshire bar. She practiced in the State of Colorado for two years before moving back to Iowa in September 2018, when she was admitted to the Iowa bar.

Madison lives in Beaverdale with her husband, Jacob, and their three cats and a dog who all have human names. They own a lovely little historical brick house that is both the love of their life and the bane of their existence. Outside of work, Madison loves reading fantasy novels, painting, cooking up a storm, biking, teaching her dog new tricks, and writing meticulous to-do lists. She has done RAGBRAI in 2021 and 2022 and hopes to beat her own personal best in 2023.

Highly Recommend!
I highly recommend Attorney Madison Fiedler for employment and labor harassment and discrimination cases. Madison and her team were very responsive and available when I called to discuss my case. She is extremely knowledgeable about the law and provided practical advice tailored to my specific set of circumstances. She was very thorough and helped me determine the most effective strategy to deal with my employer. We talked through several options in detail at each point when I needed to make a decision and she thoroughly explained potential outcomes based on the decision I was comfortable making. With the help of Madison's legal expertise and practical advice, I was able to arrive at a most favorable outcome for my case. I am extremely grateful for all the hard work Madison and her team performed to achieve the successful outcome and very highly recommend Madison.

Thank you Madison and Team
After getting pregnant and informing my former employer, I was constructively discharged and extremely devastated. I strongly believe it was injustice, how my former employer handled and treated my situation. I was advised Fiedler Law is the best and after working with them I can 100% agree. My case was handled by Madison Fiedler-Carlson and her team. Madison was always available, responsive, professional yet compassionate, very helpful and radiates such positive energy. In the midst of it all I got ill and Maddison ensured the process was as stress free and manageable for me. She stood with and guided me throughout my case and defended me from injustice. Most importantly, not just me, but also for all women that may be employed by this employer. Additionally, witnessing Madison and Paige defend me confirmed they truly are very knowledgeable and the best at what they do. I am extremely grateful for Madison and her team at Fiedler Law. Highly recommend Madison without reservation.

The best of the best
Madison is the best attorney I have worked with. She treats her clients with respect and she doesn’t stop working until she gets what’s best for her clients. Her eagerness is what excited me the most when hiring her because she jumped right into my case rather than waiting around like a lot of lawyers do. If I could hire Madison again, I would absolutely do it in a heartbeat. I’ve enjoyed creating a personal connection with her, rather than keeping it very monotone as a client of hers.
