Orlando Personal Injury Attorney Carolyn Salzmann 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. Ms. Salzmann was president of her class, founding member of her sorority, and captain of cheerleading. Ms. Salzmann focused her engineering career on designing and building manufacturing facilities around the country, and traveled the world in search of new technology to bring back to the United States.
Carolyn worked at Fortune 500 companies such as Anheuser-Bush, Mars, Inc., and Campbell Foods. As her engineering career progressed, Ms. Salzmann went to Pepperdine University in Malibu, California to obtain her Master of Business Administration degree. Again, Ms. Salzmann graduated with honors. Then Ms. Salzmann made the difficult decision to leave her engineering career and pursue and law degree full time. She attended the University of Toledo School Of Law where she was granted numerous merit scholarships.
Ms. Salzmann won the law school’s mock trial competition beating over 80 competitors to win the number one spot. She was also on law review, published several articles, and obtained numerous “highest ranking student” awards in certain law classes. Ms. Salzmann graduated third in a class of over 100 law students and went to work for Akerman Senterfitt – one of the largest law firms in the country. While at Akerman Senterfitt, Attorney Carolyn Salzmann 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 her career to personal injury.
After receiving encouragement from a good friend, Ms. Salzmann went to work for Morgan & Morgan, P.A. and handled well over a 1,000 personal injury cases as the lead attorney. Inspired to have a more personal, smaller boutique injury law firm, not a mill, Ms. Salzmann opened The Salzmann Firm, PLLC in February of 2010.
The Salzmann Firm is everything that Attorney Carolyn Salzmann has envisioned it would be. The Salzmann Firm has a small attorney to client ratio and is able to give an extremely high level of customer service. This low attorney to client ratio allows each client to be given the high level of attention that they deserve and a level of accessibility to the lawyers and paralegals that is unmatched. This has allowed The Salzmann Firm to negotiate higher settlement than previously seen at prior personal injury firms because the level of detail is so much higher and the insurance companies realize it.
