Madden & Madden was formed in 1975 by Jim and Mike Madden, the sons of Thomas M. Madden. Tom Madden was a federal judge on the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, nominated by President Harry S. Truman in 1945. He served as chief judge from 1961-1968, and served on senior status from January 1, 1968 until his death on March 29, 1976.
