6 Tips for Avoiding Driving Under the InfluenceIt’s summertime and this year more than ever people are ready to get back to celebrating. From backyard barbecues to weddings, graduations, birthdays, and anniversaries your social calendar is probably full. Now’s a good time to post a few tips on how to avoid driving under the influence. Drunk driving kills and injures thousands of people every year. One driving under the influence mistake can also ruin your professional life and cause great anguish to your family, not to mention serious injury to the driver and passengers. Below are some ways to avoid drinking and driving.

  1. If you know you are going out and there will be drinking, agree ahead of time on a designated driver who will commit to not drinking alcohol that night.
  2. Order non-alcoholic beverages. Many restaurants offer mocktails that are creative, flavorful, and served in the same fancy glasses as beverages with alcohol.
  3. Never get in the car with someone who has been drinking.
  4. If you find yourself in a situation where you have been drinking and there is no designated driver, call a taxi, Uber, or Lyft, take public transportation home, or ask if you can stay over if the party is in a home.
  5. If you do drink, do so responsibly. Pace your drinks, be sure to eat plenty of food, and drink lots of water. Don’t consume alcohol for at least two or three hours before you plan to get on the road.
  6. Prevent others from getting on the road drunk. If you are sober offer them a ride or call them a cab. If you can’t persuade them and can safely do so, take away their keys. The person may be angry with you now but will hopefully thank you in the morning.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

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!
