Arrive Safely at Your Thanksgiving DestinationAs we approach the most traveled weekend of the year—Thanksgiving—we want to offer tips on how to stay safe on the road this holiday season.

  • Do a safety pre-check. Before getting on the road inspect your tires to make sure they are properly inflated. Check your battery, oil, windshield, and other fluid levels and get an oil change if you’re due. Make sure wiper blades are in good condition.
  • Pack an emergency kit. Be sure you have flares, tire inflator, flashlight, cell phone charger, blanket, water, and snacks in the car in case of an unexpected breakdown or weather issue.
  • Be well-rested. Lots of drivers have many miles to go to reach their loved ones and starting early or traveling late into the night is always a temptation. If this is your plan, make sure you’ve gotten a solid week’s worth of good sleep before your trip to be sure you’re alert on the road.
  • Keep children occupied. Avoid distraction by bored children by packing snacks, books, videos, games, and other items that will keep them busy.
  • Plan pit stops. It’s best for everyone in the car, especially the driver, if you stop every couple of hours for bathroom breaks, fresh air, and to stretch your legs. This will help keep you awake and focused on the road.
  • Stay calm! There will be lots of traffic and delays for sure. Build extra time into your trip schedule and avoid tailgating, speeding, and other behaviors that can lead to car accidents.

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

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.

Hanna Padilla Testimonial

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.
