Social Security Disability Lawyers and Long Term Disability Lawyers – Austin, Texas

Social Security Disability


   Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI or SSI) are difficult to obtain. There are deadlines for filing, endless paperwork to complete, and complicated guidelines for determining whether or not you will be eligible. A qualified social security lawyer with specialized knowledge in Social Security Disability law is far more likely to obtain the maximum benefits than a lawyer without the same experience. It is even more important to have a successful litigation attorney on your side if you have been denied ss disability benefits. Let one of our winning social security lawyers fight for the disability benefits you deserve.



Long Term Disability

  Long term disability insurance companies routinely deny disability coverage having decided that they are not governed by the state disability laws, but by federal ERISA law. As a result, people suffering with disabilities are forced to navigate the highly intimidating Federal Court system. The application forms can be confusing and involve many deadlines that need to be met in order to receive a favorable judgment for disability benefits. Luckily your chances of success go up as much as 50% when filing a claim with an experienced disability lawyer at your side.                                                                        



ERS Disability


If you are considering employment with the State of Texas or with an institution of higher learning, Bemis, Roach & Reed strongly advises that you take advantage of the disability insurance benefit offered by ERS at the outset.
An applicant or an employee who fails to enroll within 31 days of his first day of work will not be offered disability insurance unless he can provide Evidence of Insurability. The applicant will pay all expenses related to obtaining Evidence of Insurability and there is no guarantee that you will be approved.



“Fantastic law firm with the personal touch! From the first contact to the final meeting, the staff atBemis, Roach & Reed made my husband and I feel at ease. Mr. Bemis gave so much of his time and expertise as we discussed our disability case. He sees the whole picture of your situation and guides you through the process with his kindness, patience and invaluable wisdom. I highly recommend this group of professionals if you are looking for a disability law firm.”
