Tracy Madden is a Principal Lawyer at Slater and Gordon Lawyers and an experienced litigator. Tracy has worked in asbestos litigation for over 25 years in a lawyer and support capacity. “I have been involved in more than 600 claims; from former James Hardie and Wunderlich workers, to wives who washed their husband’s clothes, and people exposed as children in home renovations. I never cease to be surprised by the many ways in which people are exposed to asbestos”.
Tracy’s priority is to achieve the best result for her clients, with the minimum amount of stress. She has a warm friendly manner and is sensitive to her client’s needs.
“I have had many years’ experience representing and supporting people with Mesothelioma and Lung Cancer and their families”
Tracy is passionate about the need to educate people about the ongoing dangers of exposure to asbestos. She regularly speaks to groups and organisations about the hazards of asbestos exposure.
“It worries me that this weekend, someone will pull out asbestos cement sheets as part of a renovation and unwittingly expose themselves to asbestos”.
Outside of work, Tracy is married with teenage children and is a keen walker who has walked the Upstream Foundation Charity walk (50km) and the Oxfam 100km Trailwalker event. “My goal is to walk the Camino de Santiago which is about 780kms”.

"I have recently successfully settled a claim against Hardies in respect of a Mesothelioma claim. Slater and Gordon acted for me in this matter and it would be remiss if the personnel and processes involved in this claim went unrecognised ; hence this letter." - Harry Gill
“Now that the euphoria of the “great news” has settled, I felt I should formally convey to you both our grateful thanks and appreciation for the efforts you put into achieving a really outstanding outcome. We were also delighted with the very personal and caring approach that we received in all of the communications form you over the past months. It is gratifying to be treated as people rather than ‘just clients'.” - V and L Bunn
