Carolyn Salzmann

Managing Member of Legally Pink Law

Orlando Injury Attorney Carolyn Salzmann is the managing member of The Salzmann Firm, PLLC — or Legally Pink Law — where she devotes all of her time and energy exclusively to the field of personal injury law. Ms. Salzmann personally handles cases that involve car accidents, premises liability, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, products liability, dog bite incidents, boating accidents, motorcycle accidents, use of excessive of force, and other personal injury actions.

Ms. Salzmann is a firm believer that an attorney should concentrate in one area of the law. She believes in doing one thing, and doing that one thing exceptionally well. For her, that is practicing personal injury law and helping her clients obtain the maximum recovery possible. Ms. Salzmann has represented thousands of clients in personal injury actions and has tried cases in both state and federal courts.

Recognition for Her High Settlements and Excellence in Service

Ms. Salzmann was admitted to the Million Dollar Advocates Forum®, which is a very prestigious group of trial attorneys that have achieved settlements valuing $1 million and up for their clients. Less than 1% of all attorneys in the United States are admitted as members.

In another form of recognition, Ms. Salzmann was recently the recipient of the James Glazebrook Professionalism Award for excellence in her service to the legal community and the Inns of Court. Ms. Salzmann was the first non-judge to receive this award. This is considered an incredibly high honor, as it was voted on by local attorneys and judges who selected her as a trial attorney who practices professionalism and who has a positive impact on the practice of law. Ms. Salzmann carries that professionalism and impact into her practice and into the courtroom when a case goes to a jury trial.

Combining Her Skills as an Attorney and an Engineer

Ms. Salzmann is somewhat of a rarity in the field of personal injury law, as she is both an attorney and an engineer. She graduated with honors from New Jersey Institute of Technology in 1984 with a degree in chemical engineering and was inducted into the National Chemical Engineering Honor Society. She was president of her class, founding member of her sorority, captain of cheerleading, and a participant in many other activities.

After graduation, Ms. Salzmann focused her engineering career on designing and building manufacturing facilities around the country. As her engineering career progressed, she went to Pepperdine University in Malibu, California to obtain her Master of Business Administration degree, and she again graduated with honors.

Eventually, Ms. Salzmann made the difficult decision to leave her engineering career and pursue a law degree full-time. She attended the University of Toledo School Of Law, where she was granted numerous merit scholarships. Some of Ms. Salzmann's accomplishments as a law student included winning the law school's mock trial competition, being on law review, publishing several articles, and obtaining numerous "highest ranking student" awards in certain law classes. She graduated third in a class of over 100 law students.

Today, Ms. Salzmann uses her technical engineering background to analyze and present cases in a way that only an attorney and engineer can. She has the unique ability to understand expert witnesses, and that allows her to better present testimony to a jury and cross-examine experts for the defense. It is truly a beneficial combination for her clients.

Furthermore, being an attorney and engineer with an MBA allows Ms. Salzmann to understand and better present the economic damages aspects of the claims she handles. There are often past and future economic damages that require expert testimony, and the calculation of the damages are typically complex. Ms. Salzmann's MBA is priceless in using this information to increase the value of her clients' claims.

Becoming an Advocate for Injury Victims

After law school, Ms. Salzmann went to work for Akerman Senterfitt – one of the largest law firms in the country. While at Akerman Senterfitt, she worked on complex, multi-million dollar litigation cases, many of which involved hi-tech issues for companies such as Siemens Westinghouse and Lockheed Martin. She also defended manufacturers in products liability actions. While this work was intellectually stimulating, Ms. Salzmann realized that her true passion was helping people, and she turned the focus of her career to personal injury law.

After receiving encouragement from a good friend, Ms. Salzmann went to work for Morgan & Morgan, P.A. and handled thousands of personal injury cases as the lead attorney. Inspired to have a smaller, more personal boutique injury law firm, not a mill, Ms. Salzmann opened The Salzmann Firm, PLLC (or Legally Pink Law) in February 2010.

Legally Pink Law is everything that Attorney Salzmann has envisioned it would be. The firm has a low attorney-to-client ratio and is able to provide excellent customer service. This low attorney-to-client ratio allows each client to be given the level of attention that he or she deserves, as well as an unmatched level of accessibility to the firm's lawyers and paralegals. Legally Pink Law has been successful in negotiating higher settlements than is seen at many other personal injury firms. This is due to the fact that the level of detail in the firm's claims is so much higher, and the insurance companies realize that.
