About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.

Chris Salsman is an associate attorney at Greenberg & Bederman, LLC. His practice is devoted to representing individuals injured due to the negligence of others, including victims of motor vehicle collisions, nursing home abuse/neglect, medical malpractice, and other forms of negligence.

Chris is originally from Louisville, Kentucky. He earned both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Political Science, with honors, from The American University in Washington, D.C. While earning his bachelor’s degree, Chris worked in the United States Senate and volunteered over 500 hours of time at Louisville’s VA Medical Center.

In 2009, Chris’s dad lost all vision in both eyes after undergoing surgery. Chris and his family were devastated but determined to fight back. For the next three years, Chris watched as his dad’s medical malpractice lawsuit winded its way through the courts. Chris was fascinated by the legal process. But what impressed him the most was the influence his dad’s lawyer wielded outside of the courtroom—encouraging his dad to persevere, to adapt, and to push forward. By the time it was over, Chris’s dad had enrolled in classes at the Kentucky Center for the Blind, where he went on to learn the tools and skills to help him cope with his new life. Armed with this experience, Chris knew he wanted to be a trial lawyer so he could fight on behalf of personal injury victims like his dad.

Chris earned his Juris Doctor degree from Georgetown Law in 2015. During law school, he enrolled in the Georgetown Law Federal Legislation and Administrative Clinic, where he worked for a semester to advance the causes of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. Immediately prior to joining Greenberg & Bederman, he worked as a personal injury litigation associate at a law firm in Bowie, Maryland.

Chris is licensed to practice law in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Kentucky. He is also admitted to practice in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland.

Ms. Simpson
I was very optimistic about allowing Greenberg and Bederman trying my case because I didn’t think they would have the time and compassion I felt I deserved. I was wrong. Chris Salsman did an amazing job not only winning my case but pointing out key details and representing me in a way I felt was necessary. I highly recommend Mr.Salsman for his professionalism, quality of work and commitment from beginning to end. And I am forever grateful.

Chris Salsman
I would like to thank Greenberg and Bederman, especially Chris Salsman and Lacey. They helped me get through a motorcycle accident, with a lot of grace and patience. I needed that because I was a mess. Chris is very knowledgeable and funny when I needed him to be. I highly recommend Greenberg and Bederman, they got me everything I deserved after my horrible injuries.

The mixed up VIN number
I would like to thank the Greenberg and Bederman team for helping me through all the drama I went through with my car accident. I know that I would not have been able to accomplish all that was done on my own. Yes, there was time I got frustrated. The VIN number was really challenging. I hope you never have to go through that again. Thank you for staying and working with me in those moments. I just want you to know that I appreciated all that you did to help me. Sincerely, Earnestine McCoy

A+!!
I called Greenberg and Bederman about an accident that I was in a few years ago. I should have called them years ago, because by the time I did call there was only about 6 months left until the 3-year deadline for lawsuits/settlements. Mr. Salsman ended up taking the case, and in only a couple of months, was able to get me much more than I was expecting to receive. Apparently Gieco was even trying to weasel their way out of paying me at all by saying that my injury was sustained sometime after the actual accident, but Chris didn’t let them get away with it. When all was said and done, the insurance companies had paid just under 40k for my accident that left me with a broken wrist. He probably would have gotten me even more if I had undergone the wrist-surgery my doctor had recommended (I couldn’t do it because I work with my hands as a bartender). Mr Salsman was very professional and always kept me in the loop with the process. He always replied to me quickly, explained things in a way that I could understand, and was relentless in his pursuit of getting me the fattest possible payout. If I am ever in a similar situation, I will not only call Greenberg and Bederman, but I will specifically ask for Mr Salsmans assistance. You will not find anyone else who will do better work on your behalf.

Attorney Christopher Salsman was very professional in handling my case. He kept me informed of each step he was taking concerning my lawsuit. Covid-19 was not a hindrance to him keeping virtual appointments. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. Attorney Salsman is a asset to your Law Firm. I would gladly refer clients to Greenberg and Bederman.

Gets the Job Done!!
I would definitely recommend Christopher Salsman as a personal injury attorney. My accident happened in 2018 and I really felt lost on what to do. I had never been in an accident before where an injury turned into chronic pain. I was really depressed and anxious. After sitting in limbo for some time, in April 2021 Christopher was assigned to my case. In a matter of 2 to 3 months Christopher was able to get me answers and a court date. This ultimately turned into settlement out of court in which Christopher fought on my behalf to get the largest settlement possible. I really appreciated all of Chris's attention to the details of my case and for always being so responsive to my questions and concerns.

What???
I had an attorney already handling my case when I received a call from Christopher Salsman. I'm thinking, after a few years with one attorney and now they're flipping me off to someone else. Soon l was thanking God for the change. Atty Salsman could not have been more prepared and ready for this case. Throughout this process, he was responsive to my every question or inquiry, kept me updated regularly and shared trial strategies. During the trial, he always asked the right questions to affect the desired response. We were successful with our case and secured an excellent verdict. I would recommend Christopher for any litigation under his umbrella. He is what I would call a pit bull with sunglasses, because by the time you think you've got it figured out...it's over. If I am ever in need of an attorney again, l have Chris on speed dial!

Client
Chris was an excellent attorney, I found him to be very knowledgable and experienced. Chris was responsive and honest when I needed him to be while working with Chris I had no doubt that my case was in the best hands. I would highly recommend Chris for those seeking legal representation, from someone that is trustworthy and that will work diligently on your case. Should I find my self in such another situation as this I would not hesitate to seek Chris for representation again. Thanks again Chris for your diligence and hard work on my case as we were successful and gained the results we were seeking it is greatly appreciated.

I Highly Recommend This Lawyer!
In December of 2017, I was crossing the street outside my apartment (inside the crosswalk and with a pedestrian “walk” signal), when an SUV ran a red light and hit me. While I was laying in the middle of the road with a fractured right arm, the driver of the SUV fled the scene. I was eventually taken by ambulance to Suburan Hospital, where I had to have surgery on my arm. I then had months of follow-up treatment with an orthopedic doctor and physical therapist. I didn’t think I could make a claim for my injuries since I didn’t know who it was that hit me. But my friends told me I should talk to Chris. And I’m glad I did. He came to my house to meet with me to discuss my case. In less than six months, he was able to get my auto insurance company to pay me the maximum amount available under my policy. The money was more than enough to cover my medical expenses and lost wages. He answered all my questions and communicated with me every step of the way. I would recommend him to anyone!

Very Professional, Excellent Attitude, Great Under Pressure
Mr. Christopher Salsman is the one you want on your case. He has a mindset of positivity under pressure. I felt very comfortable with his suggestions on my case. He had no problem going to court, and getting the job done. When working with Mr. Salsman not at one moment did I feel we would lose. I can see why Mr. Andrew Bederman has him on the team. I had the pleasure of working with both lawyers. I received superb results.

Very pleasant to work with on my case
I was a client of Mr. Salsman for my accident case. Although my case was challenging and took longer than anticipated to resolve, Mr. Salsman both called and emailed to advise me on the status of my case regularly. He was very pleasant and fun to speak with. Even with the laughs during our conversations, he always remained professional and respectful. He helped make my experience less stressful with a settlement I was very pleased with. Thanks so much!!
