“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.

Case Example for Mr. Bemis

Mr. Bemis had a client from Lockhart, came to us knowing how hard it is to achieve a favorable judgement when you first apply for social security disability.

The 60-year-old truck driver had been in an auto accident several years previously which had resulted in a back injury that led to degenerative disc disease. He continued working and subsequently broke his right ankle twice. Over time, these injuries led to debilitating back pain and leg problems. He was no longer able to perform his job duties.

Lloyd represented him in his initial SSDI filing, and he was awarded benefits in July, only three months after we submitted his application.
