Madison FaberParalegal/Legal Executive


Madison Faber joined Norris Echetebu Law in July of 2021, and supports our attorneys and clients as the firm’s Paralegal and Legal Executive. As the first point of contact at the firm and throughout our relationship with our clients, she serves a very vital role in managing client communications for the firm. Maddy is the friendly and effective first point of call for any questions or queries from those interested in the firm’s services and legal counsel related to US Business, US Commercial, US Immigration, and US Entertainment & Copyright Law.

Maddy graduated Victoria University of Wellington in March of 2021 with a conjoint Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts majoring in Cultural Anthropology and International Relations. She was admitted to the NZ Bar as a barrister and solicitor in March 2022. Maddy strives to use her NZ legal knowledge and background to serve our clients and offer a ‘local and homegrown’ Kiwi perspective in conversations while diligently expanding on her experience with US law.

Maddy was deeply involved in Rotary throughout her time in Wellington, joining the local Rotaract club in March of 2018 after spending the summer living with a Rotary exchange student. When she found the club dying, she took it on as her mission to revitalise this opportunity for young people to take part in community service. She was President for the Rotaract Club of Wellington for two years, growing the club from two up to over fourty members, was selected as the Rotaract Representative for the Lower North Island, nominated to attend RYLA and was awarded the prestigious Paul Harris Fellow Award for significant contributions to the Rotary community.

A Paul Harris Fellow is awarded to: “A person whose life exemplifies the humanitarian and educational objectives of the Rotary Foundation, for demonstrating a life and vocational commitment to helping persons in need here and around the world “.

Maddy has always enjoyed solving a good puzzle, and found a love for this in the law and dispute resolution. In the little free time she has, she loves to spend time with her family, grab a bite to eat in Auckland’s fantastic food scene (she has lots of Wellington recommendations), write, and spend time with her nose buried in a good book.
