About Folsom, CA | Folsom Personal Injury Lawyers

Folsom is a suburban city located in Sacramento County that has a population in excess of 72,000 people and covers an area of approximately 24.3 square miles. Folsom is most commonly known for its famous Folsom Prison.

Folsom was originally founded as Granite City by Joseph Libbey Folsom. When Joseph died in 1855 the city’s name was changed to Folsom in his honor. Folsom was initially home to a large amount of Gold Miners during the California Gold Rush. With the discovery of Gold in Folsom, came the need for mining operations and rail service. In 1946 Folsom was officially incorporated as a city due to a campaign by the Folsom Chamber of Commerce.

In 1880, the famous Folsom Prison was built when the Livermore family agreed to donate the land to the state in exchange for prison labor. Folsom is the second oldest prison in the state of California, newer than only San Quentin. Folsom prison is best known for two concerts in which Johnny Cash performed at the prison in the late 1960s.

The Folsom Dam was constructed in 1956 in order to provide important flood control and water rights for the Sacramento Valley. The Dam is 340 feet high and 1,400 feet long, spanning over 4.8 miles. The Dam was constructed in order to control the American River. Folsom Lake is the reservoir created by the Folsom Dam and is a popular source of entertainment for Folsom locals and people all over northern California.

In the heart of Folsom is Historic Sutter Street, which still has most of its original buildings from the 1800s which have been maintained, remodeled or revitalized. Historic Folsom is home to more than 80 businesses, from restaurants to museums. Historic Folsom offers monthly events including Live Entertainment, Antique Fairs, car shows and during the winter season they offer an ice skating rink.

Herb T. Testimonial

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.

Jennifer T. Testimonial

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.

S.B. Testimonial

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...

Jereme S. Testimonial

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!
