“Lloyd Bemis has been an outstanding attorney and friend to me throughout the most trying time of my life. He was compassionate and understanding, explaining things to me in a way that I could understand, helping me make decisions that were best for me and my family. He and his whole staff stuck with me all the way, always responding to my questions and concerns.
