Commentary by Kelsey Hunter - Vote Tiemann for Judge

by Placerville Newswire / May 06, 2016 / comments

I first met Roland Tiemann in 2012. I have attended four of his continuing legal education courses that he does on a volunteer basis. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge and how he shared that knowledge by teaching other attorneys. He is a gifted teacher, smart and experienced.

I have also gotten to know Roland on a professional level. As a young attorney I have asked Roland for advice on a wide range of subjects. It is evident that he is an expert in the areas of law that he practices. He also has the reputation of being the go-to in these areas of law for other attorneys. He has been wonderful in sharing his knowledge of the legal field with me. He sets a great example of how experienced attorneys should mentor attorneys just starting out.

As an attorney I see how nervous litigants can get when entering a courthouse for the first time. They are often intimidated by the legal process. With Roland Tiemann as a judge I know that these litigants will immediately become more comfortable as they interact with “Judge Tiemann.” His command of the law, combined with his good nature, will melt away much of the fear that can be part of the courtroom experience.

Tiemann is the rare combination of an attorney who is experienced, a mentor and good-natured. I believe June 7 offers a great opportunity for El Dorado County to elect a great judge. Vote Tiemann on June 7.
