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.

Folsom is also home to 32 miles of popular bike trails including the American River Trail, Pioneer Express Trail and Rattlesnake Bar-Horseshoe Bar Trail. The trails range in intensity and distance and are a popular source of entertainment for the biking enthusiasts in the greater Sacramento area.

Folsom is also home to the largest private employer in Sacramento, Intel, which employs over 6,500 people, making it the top private employer in the city, followed by the State Prison which employs over 1,400 people. Folsom is also home to Folsom Lake College, Folsom High School and Vista Del Lago High School.

Maye Ly Testimonial

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.
