If you’ve suffered a traumatic injury after an accident you are probably overwhelmed with many difficulties. One of the most pressing is figuring out how to get the compensation you will need to get you through this challenging time and make you whole going forward. This is where an experienced, compassionate and local personal injury lawyer comes in. If you do an online search for “personal injury attorneys” you’ll find endless options. Why decide to go with an attorney in your area? Here are 5 reasons you’ll appreciate as your case moves forward.

  1. Learn upfront about your lawyer’s reputation. A personal injury lawyer that is part of your community has worked with countless others in your city or town. You’ll be able to talk to people who live close by about their experiences with a local attorney before you commit.
  2. It’s easy to meet with your personal injury lawyer in person. Like a doctor, a personal injury lawyer is someone with whom you want to establish a relationship and be able to easily communicate. By hiring an attorney in your community you can meet face to face and get to know the person who’s working for you. While technology makes it possible to communicate long distances, there are parts of the legal process where you will need to meet in person with your attorney. Being local eliminates expensive and time-consuming trips which will also be painful depending on your injuries.
  3. Proximity to witnesses. People who saw your accident happen will provide key evidence in your case. A local attorney is familiar with the area and will have an advantage over someone from out of town in tracking down and talking to witnesses.
  4. Established relationships with local professionals. A winning personal injury case may require supporting evidence from professionals such as health care providers, law enforcement, and insurance adjusters. An attorney who works where your case is being adjudicated knows who to turn to for reliable and credible testimony—and who to avoid.
  5. Familiarity with the local court system. Someone practicing in your area knows well the local laws, opposing attorneys, and judges which will prove invaluable in successfully pursuing your case.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.

It is hard to put into words the care and dedication that I received from the Tiemann’s. They have been here for me every step of the way and were always available when I had questions or concerns. My husband and I will be forever grateful for everything they have done for us and our family. Thank you so much for all of the hard work and time you have put into my case, we greatly appreciate it and your friendship. We highly recommend this firm and will always be thankful for everything they have done. Thank you so much again, Kim

I was in a very bad/ major car accident I originally had an attorney who wasn’t trying to help me out much or take any of my calls so I called Tiemann and told them my situation. They made it an AWESOME and Smooth transition over to them and took on both cases I had. I just settled on my big case and am beyond great full. For them and their team! I highly recommend them. To add on to this a little On how much they will work with you, I moved to Montana in the middle of all Of this and it was not an issue!

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
