Tammy Saltzman, a paralegal in Mallor Grodner’s family law division, was honored as the 2023 CASA of the Year at the Monroe County CASA Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon, held on Friday, April 28, 2023.
Tammy has advocated for children since 2009. She has had four cases over a span of almost 14 years. Most recently, she advocated and supported a young man for over six years, making sure this young man was settled and supported going into adulthood. His mother unfortunately and unexpectedly passed away recently, toward the end of the case. This young man has developmental delays, so the complexity of his case and his needs were many. As with all her cases, Tammy is a strong advocate, goes above and beyond to uncover needs and get those needs met, and in her quiet tone makes sure everyone is doing what needs to be done.
Tammy has been a family law paralegal for over 30 years, and has been at Mallor Grodner LLP, since 2001. She is married to a retired Indiana State Police officer and is the mother of two wonderful daughters and one stepdaughter. The joys of her life are her four grandsons, ages 6, 3, 2, and 22 months. She and her husband moved to the country a couple of years ago and have been busy remodeling their home. Tammy likes to spend time gardening, both vegetables and flowers. Her other passion is IU women’s basketball, when not with family or in the garden.
