John M. Madison, Jr. recognized as Distinguished Achievement Honoree by LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center

Roughly 300 people attended the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center Distinguished Alumni Celebration on March 6, 2020, to honor eight LSU Law alumni, among them one of our firm's founding partners, John M. Madison, Jr.

"John Madison is an extraordinary supporter and volunteer for the LSU Law Center," said LSU Law Interim Dean Lee Ann Lockridge. "As a long-time Board of Trustees member, he has hosted countless events for LSU Law alumni. He is an outstanding practitioner who is held in high esteem by colleagues."

John is a founding member of Wiener, Weiss and Madison in Shreveport and has practiced law continuously with the firm since 1975. His practice includes commercial litigation, construction law, business law, employment law, and oil and gas law, with an emphasis on representation of mineral owners. His experience ranges from the representation of the owners of small businesses to national corporations.

"The LSU Law school taught me how to be a lawyer and has allowed me to do what I love for 50 years," Madison said. "I've never gotten up a single day and didn't love my job. I'll be forever grateful for this honor."

John received a B.A. from Washington & Lee University in 1964. Before going to law school, he served as a Lieutenant in a Counterintelligence Detachment in the Army's 82nd Airborne Division. In 1969, he received a J.D. from LSU Law, where he was a member of Order of the Coif, Phi Delta Phi and the Louisiana Law Review. He is licensed to practice before all state and federal courts in Louisiana and the U.S. Supreme Court.

He is a fellow and member of the American Bar Foundation, and a member of the Louisiana State Bar Association and Shreveport Bar Association, for which he is a former president. He is also a former president of the LSU Law School Alumni Association.

Madison has been married to Jan Myers Madison for 51 years, and they have two sons, John III and Clint, and six grandchildren. For the past 50 years, he has been active in educational, religious, civic, political and charitable organizations in Shreveport.
