Madison Dillenberger, Technical Advisor

A detail-oriented advisor who blends technical know-how with people skills

For Madison, intellectual property law is the intersection of three areas in which she excels: the hard science of engineering, business-oriented problem solving and helping people develop solutions that make a difference. As a technical advisor, she works alongside attorneys to protect clients’ IP and patent rights across a variety of sectors.

As a former Patterson + Sheridan intern, Madison gained experience in semiconductor manufacturing and the oil and gas industry. She defines what it means to be detail-oriented and appreciates that a single sentence can make or break a patent. Madison enjoys figuring out how things work and balancing that narrow technical focus with the “big picture” vision required to navigate the business side of protecting IP.

Focused on making a difference, from IP to community service

Madison graduated from Baylor University with a degree in mechanical engineering and a minor in math, receiving the university’s “Presidential Gold Scholarship” for outstanding academic achievement. She focused her studies on materials and biomechanics, and her senior project was designing and building a sensory activities tower for the special needs group at a church in Waco.

While at Baylor, Madison was involved in several engineering organizations and was a founding member of the Baylor Law Intellectual Property Society. She also devoted time to tutoring, mentoring and other volunteer work, and she looks forward to continuing that in Houston. In her free time, Madison enjoys cheering on the Baylor Bears as well as the LSU Tigers from her hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As someone who studied classical ballet, she regularly supports the arts and the Houston ballet.
