After suffering a debilitating work injury I was left with no choice to reach out for help. I personally filed for disability 4 times and was denied each and every time. Things became more than tough for my family and I given the amount of pain I have to live with . I had no choice but to apply again. The only difference this time was my decision to hire an attorney. I chose to hire Mr. Reed after doing some research. Couldn’t recommend him and his firm enough. They stuck with me through times of uncertainty, reassuring to do the best job possible for my family and I. Thank you

I found Bemis Roach and Reed after losing my case with a different lawyer. I recommend them to anyone that has had trouble with their case or needs representation. They were friendly and helpful, and listened to me and were always upfront with what they were doing. If I had any questions, they were quick to answer and provided me the help I needed. Thank you Bemis Roach and Reed.

This office is awesome. They listen to you, and help every way they can. They make it simple and easy for you. It was a long struggle for me as I had a different Lawyer to begin with after a brain injury. When I was referred to Greg Reed by a Dr. I had seen, it changed everything. Him and the staff worked hard to secure me a win.

Thankfully I hired Bemis, Roach, and Reed soon after I applied for disability realizing I was way out of my depth and they took care of everything. Claudia and Monica explained everything to me along the way making me feel comfortable in a very stressful situation. Mr Bemis is super nice as well he calmed my nerves on the day we went to court which I thought was impossible and I felt like I had known him forever. I would highly recommend this law firm. Thank you so much!!!!!

I was so pleased with the attention I received. The attorney helped me in receiving my disability I saw they were serious about helping me and they went above and beyond. The assistants were always up to date in my case and if I didn’t understand a form they would help me Thank you so much Bemis, Roach & Reed to all your help.

Compassionate, helpful firm with easy steps to follow for filing disibility. I now have a better understanding of the process going forward. Mr. Reed & his staff were very receptive, reliable & easy to work with.

Definitely recommend. I actually never even had to go into their office, except once to drop of paperwork (very nice office space by the way), and they helped me understand the whole process and helped me appeal my case twice and were willing to go that extra mile needed to help me if I had to go to court, which I did not. I got their referral from my doctors secretary which gave them a very high recommendation because her family members had just had a positive experience with them also. You can really count on them. They even have given me a copy for my records for safe keeping. Thank y’all so much!

5 Stars, Hire Without Hesitation!
This firm is absolutely the best I have ever dealt with. They were relentless in their pursuit of my social security benefits. Also, they were accessible and, believe it or not, actually returned phone calls and emails very promptly. Mr. Bemis walked me through he appeals process and appeared in court on my behalf and fought steadfastly to accomplish my goal. I can NOT say enough wonderful things about Bemis, Roach and Reed. Top notch and highest recommendation!

We would have never been able to fight for social security disability our self without their help. The customer service we received was outstanding!!! They always explained stuff to us that we were confused on.

I chose Bemis, Roach, and Reed to represent me during my Social Security case, and I cannot express what a fantastic choice it was. Mr. Reed, and his associates, were incredibly knowledgable and answered all the questions I had along the way in a timely manner. It can be an overwhelming process, but having Mr. Reed represent me, really took the anxiety and uncertainty out of the process.

We had no idea what to expect when we started our disability process. My husband selected Bemis Roach and Reed to guide us through this maze. They were always so professional, courteous and prompt in their replies. Monica was awesome. It’s difficult to select a firm and put your trust and livelihood in a strangers hands, but they did an amazing job and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
October 4th, 2018 Yelp
Dealing with the team was stress free and easier than I ever imagined. Rather than file for disability myself and go through the initial denial prior to hiring an Atty, I retained Mr. Reed from the beginning. They handled all the confusing paperwork, and ensured all my forms were submitted correctly. My condition causes short term memory loss, making multi tasking, focus, and organizing difficult. I’m also prohibited from driving due to the condition. I’m sure retaining Mr. Reed cut my approval time in half….at least! Monica, my case manager was knowledgeable and very patient as I had several questions. I called a few times throughout my case, and there was never a question to which she didn’t know the answer. She was always friendly, confident and knowledgeable. I’m sure I couldn’t have acheived such fast results without the representation of Bemis Roache and Reed, and my case manager, Monica. Thank you so much guys!

I contacted this office in March 2016 after I researched on the internet with the office having good reviews. I had to appeal a decision made by the insurance company regarding my LTD benefits from my employer. After some confusion on what to do, I had only 2 weeks left to do the appeal and Lonnie Roach from this office contacted me right away. Lonnie right away took action for me.
Everyone in the office working with Lonnie Roach did a great job of communicating with me by email during the last two years. After additional surgery was performed last year, Lonnie helped me to get my LTD benefits extended. Finally, a few months ago, Lonnie at his suggestion filed a lawsuit claim, which was settled with my employer’s LTD insurance company. Lonnie helped ease my worries and improved my family’s quality of life. I truly recommend Lonnie Roach and his office as your attorney.

Excellent service! Mr. Reed and especially his case manager, Monica were wonderful, informative, and extremely kind. If you need an attorney, they are for you.

Lloyd Bemis helped me after being turned down for Social Security Disability two times. Despite 6 years of pain, 7 back fusions, and the inability to get out of bed many days, I was denied two times. He helped me file for reconsideration and then went with me for my hearing. Ultimately I was approved and received over three years of back-pay. Also, I can’t thank Claudia Perez enough for all the help, great communication, and kind words in the process. Thank you so much, Sheri

I am very impressed by Bemis, Roach and Reed. They’ve been very professional, courteous, and are very knowledgeable and successful in what they do. I applied for Social Security (SSDI and SSI) but was turned down. I hired this law firm for the appeal, and they not only won it quickly, but I got the maximum back pay on both SSDI and SSI allowed by law. A social worker at the hospital where I was couldn’t believe it when I showed her the letters Social Security sent me about what my benefits would be. I called the law firm, she wanted to speak and the first thing she said into the phone is in all the years she’s dealt with Social Security, she’s never seen a case go through with the maximum back pay on both SSDI and SSI, and this quickly. I highly recommend this law firm.

Very productive firm. They made short work of getting my SSDI benifits approved. I recommend them.
July 5th, 2018 Google
I highly recommend the Bemis, Roach & Reed Law Firm to anyone who has been denied Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Mr. Bemis was very knowledgeable and helpful with his insight and experience in dealing with the SSDI. He reviewed my claim, interviewed me and represented me with the appeals judge. Mr. Bemis was able to get me a fully favorable finding within 6 months of initial contact. Before that time (and without the law firms assistance) the SSDI office had denied my claim for 2 and a half years. I am located in San Antonio and could not find a nearby law firm that seemed reliable. So, I had to looked towards Austin to find them and I am very glad I did. Looking back I should have hired Mr. Bemis as soon as possible. It would have saved me years of frustration with the SSDI office. Many thanks to his law firm including Ms. Claudia Perez.

My experience at Bemis, Roach & Reed was great during a difficult time in my life. Mr. Bemis is very knowledgeable, caring, and treated my case with great detail. His paralegal, Claudia, was also very helpful and always available if I had any questions. I was very blessed to find this law firm and would highly recommend their services. Thanks again, Leslie

We had been needing to apply for SSI Benefits for a few years and getting on top of things was always difficult for us. I located Mr. Reed on Google and reached out. Will, called me back in a short time and set an appt . to get us some help with this process. Our meeting with Greg Reed was very professional, and very informative. After he received all my information he smiled and said I will take you case. Much relieved he let us know any information he still needed, was very patient with us. Monica , his side kick was more than helpful with all our questions and very patient with how long a few of the forms took us to fill out. Within five months we were hearing results , and then filled out more forms from S.S. I.
Then shortly after we received not only our first monthly check , but back pay since the disability begin. What a relief and a blessing. We thank these intelligent , kind people who helped us through this process. It would of been quite a different experience if not for them, ( many of our friends shared a very different story. When they tried this on their own.) God bless these good people, you have changed our lives. Much love and respect, J & J Allen

Mr. Bemis talked with me personally about my case. He is a very friendly and has compassion. Trisha at the front desk was/is very helpful and told me to keep her updated on how I was doing/feeling. It was a very pleasant experience for my difficult situation. Thank you everyone at the Law firm!

Need to say a long overdue thank you and great job to Mr. Reed and his case manager Monica Mendez. They handled my case with the upmost confidence, professionalism and with me, patience. Even with denial after denial (in which all paperwork was handled by them), their confidence and determination never let up. Mr. Reed was fantastic in court and even though I didn’t want to get my hopes too high after being denied so many times, I knew we won. And we did!!! I even received backpay for 2 years for myself and my children!
June 5th, 2018 Yelp
I initially applied for Social Security disability benefits on my own and was denied. Since I was confident that I was legitimately disabled, and should have been granted benefits, I sought assistance from Bemis, Roach & Reed to appeal the denial. I chose their firm based upon a personal recommendation and because their website was amazingly informative, demonstrating that they genuinely wanted to help people even if they were not representing them. I discussed my situation with Greg Reed and his opinion was that I am legitimately disabled, so he agreed to represent me in the appeal of my case. My appeal was handled very efficiently and Greg’s case manager, Monica, did an excellent job assisting me with all the paperwork and ensuring that everything was completed correctly and submitted within the deadlines. The result was that Social Security reversed its denial and granted me benefits. I am extremely pleased with the way my case was handled, and especially with the positive outcome, and highly recommend Bemis, Roach & Reed to anyone who needs assistance with a Social Security disability case.

I filed an appeal for my disability insurance and then looked online for an attorney because I wanted to feel that I had assurance. I spoke to Mr. Reed and was told that he would take my case and that he wouldn’t take it unless he thought we would win. He was my attorney but everything was done via email with Monica Mendez. Everything worked out for the best and I am now receiving my disability payments. Actually, I feel that I didn’t understand the process and felt defeated on a daily basis. It’s really just a waiting game and you have to be patient when it comes to SSI. Overall, an awesome experience.

After multiple failed attempts, I decided to seek help with my fathers case. I am so glad that I was able find this law firm and that Mr. Reed was willing to take his case. It was further out (East Texas) than he normally travels. We really appreciate him. There is not enough gratitude that we can give to Monica. Thank you for your patience and thanks for answering the numerous questions we had 🙂

I am a disabled veteran who was already receiving 100% disability; however, upon my first attempt to file for social security under the wounded warrior act, I was denied. I contacted Mr. Reed, based on the outstanding reviews the firm had already received. Mr. Reed believed in me and my case. Because I am 100% disabled, I was entitled to an expedited hearing, which we were able to obtain three months earlier than anticipated. In April of 2018, four months after the hearing, I received my social security benefits…from the date the VA had me deemed unemployable and permanently disabled. Besides GOD, Mr. Reed was by my side through the entire process. I’m truly thankful.

Words cannot come close to describing my experience with Greg Reed and his assistant Monica Mendez. Without their help, I would have never been able to navigate my way through the system. From the very start, Mr. Reed was straight forward and informed me on what to expect so there was no surprises. My case manager, Monica, made me feel like I was their number one priority. I would not have been able to see my claim through without them. Thanks for the excellent care and attention I received.

I definitely recommend Greg Reed of Bemis, Roach & Reed. After a prolonged and frustrating pursuit of Social Security Disability on my own, I was fortunate to consult with Mr. Reed. After the initial consultation I immediately felt relieved of the stress from my past experiences dealing with SSA. In preparing for my hearing, Mr. Reed instilled in me the confidence I needed and had been desperately searching for. Everyone, especially Case Manager Monica Mendez, was friendly, compassionate and patient while providing excellent service. My only regret is that I did not consult with Mr. Reed sooner.

As if dealing with the physical and mental effects of cancer is not enough, my initial claim for disability was denied. I was exhausted with the process and decided to talk to Mr. Bemis. Glad I did! One visit, several e-mail exchanges and 5 months later my claim was approved. I highly recommend this legal team to anyone in a similar battle. True professionals!
December 30, 2017 Yelp
I found myself in a confusing and frustrating situation when I was injured and did not know what I was going to do regarding my job and my loss of income. The Disability Insurance company was using shady tactics to deny my claim and after reading reviews of people who had gone through this – I realized I was going to be in a long losing battle – if I did not hire an attorney. After reading reviews of the offices of Bemis, Roach & Reed – I gave them a try. I sit here now less than a year later and I have been awarded Long Term Disability and SSDI. Mr Reed, Monica & Sammie were most helpful and professional and I could not be more satisfied. It was especially gratifying that I never had to deal with that shady Disability Insurance company – I just told them to contact my attorney and my attorney came through for me in spectacular fashion. Do yourself a favor and give them a call and put your mind at ease.

Highly recommend, Greg Reed. With a documented Traumatic Brain Injury, multiple concussions, cognitive impairments and severe PTSD, one would think the SSA disability process would be clear and decisive….it definitely is NOT! Greg Reed with Bemis, Roach & Reed and his paralegal, Craig, helped my family and me survive the arduous 2 year disability application and appeal process; ending in a favorable SSDI hearing decision. Mr. Reed and his team were consistently responsive to our detailed questions; while being caring and forthright. Prior to our disability hearing, Greg met with us several times for hours to go through each and every disability question anticipated from the judge. He provided a lot of hand-holding for a very nerve-wracking process. We expected our 1st denial, but with our written Appeal denied, we were headed for a hearing. I do not believe we would have won without Greg Reed and the support of his team. Greg Reed is immensely qualified, dedicated, and understanding. Thanks so much for your excellent service and commitment, you exceeded our expectations on a complex 2 year case.

Highly recommend Greg Reed with Bemis, Roach & Reed! He was caring, understanding and forthright in our initial consult. He and his paralegal, Craig Roach, were informative and highly responsive in helping on my arduous, painful and emotional journey to obtaining my Social Security Disability. I expected my first denial but truly felt it might come to a hearing in the end. Yet with the aid and diligence of these extremely well-versed, highly qualified individuals, I was able to receive my letter of award within ten months. Do not hesitate to have a consult and best advocate for yourself with this firm. Outstanding service, extremely compassionate and beyond expectation. I’ll be forever thankful for their assistance of Greg Reed & Craig Roach! Thank you, gentlemen!

My experience thus far, with Bemis, Roach & Reed, has been AWESOME. I was looking for a lawyer to assist with my MetLife LTD claim to appeal a denial. This is still in the works with Lonnie Roach, and I am excited and confident I will be coming back to write a 2nd review to speak to the result of that claim.
BUT, meanwhile, as an added bonus, when I contacted Bemis, Roach & Reed about my LTD, Lonnie hooked me up with Lloyd Bemis regarding Social Security Disability. Mr. Bemis and his very helpful staff person, Trisha Wilson, completely exceeded my expectations when they were able to get my SSDI claim approved in a few short months!
Of course I would be remiss if I didn’t also give praise to God Almighty for answering my prayers, blessing this Law Group with great knowledge and skill, and guiding me to them when I was desperately searching.
I highly recommend contacting BR&R to anyone seeking assistance with disability benefits. It will be an immediate LOAD off of your shoulders to offload this worrisome process onto the strong and reassuring shoulders of BR&R. Believe me, they provide a great value of service, for a surprisingly reasonable cost.
THANK YOU BR&R!

No one wants to be in a position to need to file for disability, but if you do, BR&R is the team. Our experience with them could not have been better. Mr. Bemis clearly explained everything at the first consultation and the process was exactly as he said. All of the staff we worked with was also great. We knew that we were in exceptional hands, and that took a lot of stress and worry away during the process. We highly recommend this firm.

And to my unexpected surprise, he proved to be a person of great integrity. He treated me fair, went above his initial commitment and left me with such a positive experience in the wake of very unfortunate legal issues. Thank you Lonnie. I will forever be grateful I found you. And though I hope I am never again in need of your services, I will not hesitate to call upon you or recommend you.

I could not have navigated through the complexities and endless requirements for medical records had I not obtained the services of BRR. In particular, Greg Reed represented me, along with several outstanding and responsive paralegals (Craig and Monica). Having been denied twice for written applications for SSD, I was encouraged by the positive optimism by Gregg that I had a good shot at obtaining an appeal, and ultimately a chance at presenting my case in person to a administrative law judge. In retrospect, had I not used the services of BRR, I would have just given up after the two initial denials. Getting back to the hearing, it lasted about 1 hour, and to my great surprise, the judge approved my SSD request at the end of the hearing. Another very important aspect of working with BRR, is that they gathered, compiled and uploaded all my medical records necessary for my hearing. This approval has lifted a great burden from my shoulders, and many stressful days from my life and my family. I highly recommend the services of BRR for representing anyone seeking disability benefits. Without a doubt, this is a long bureaucratic process, and getting representation from BRR was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

We were very fortunate to choose Bemis, Roach & Reed with my Social security disability claim. After an initial conference call with Mr. Bemis, after listening to what I had to offer as far as medical information, and Doctors backing me, that he felt sure something could be done, and made sure all of our questions were answered to our satisfaction (they were), then explained how the process works. Our contact, Trisha, was always polite and quick to reply to any and all questions. All-in-all, this firm works like a well oiled machine, or, even better – the 2004 Red Sox. End result: Success on my first attempt at getting disability! Thank You! Brian and Robin

My name is D.W. and I want to let you know how helpful Will Munsel has been for me after I contacted your firm to get assistance with my Disability Application.
At first when I contacted your firm I was told by an individual working for your firm that she could only help me in the second phase of the process.
I had no idea what she meant until I began my application on November 22nd 2016. I was told at this meeting that I may not be approved in my first, second, and third attempt. I was very bummed out and did not think I could handle the pressure and effort that this looked to require in just the first attempt.
Will called me out of the blue one Friday afternoon on a grey day in December 2016. He introduced himself as being with your firm and let me know that he was following up with me on my progress with SS. At first, not expecting a call let alone a call from your firm, I was very leery as I had been told by SS that the first attempt could take 6-9 months. I asked him the reason his firm was calling me back so soon. After answering my questions successfully and Will had expressed an honest concern in assisting me.
Over the next 5-6 months we talked and he gave me advice when I asked.
Just yesterday Will called me and sent a follow up email. I left him a voicemail message and returned his email. To my great amazement I made it through the first try.
You have a great employee in Will. I wouldn’t be surprised if he brought in most of your customers.
Thanks to Will and your firm I can pay for my medication, food, gas and other necessary items.

I was very fortunate to choose Bemis, Roach & Reed with my Social security disability claim. After an initial conference call they said that they felt sure something could be done, and told us (my wife and I) how everything should work.
I was also fortunate to have a good doctor standing along with me.
Don’t get the idea that once you sign the papers you can sit back and wait – there are things you can do, and information you can retrieve faster than a simple email request for medical information. Both my wife and I did our best to copy/.PDF and send along any and all information we had or could get as well.

Mr. Bemis and his incredible staff ( Trisha Wilson & Claudia Perez ) supported me from the very beginning. Mr. Bemis spent 1 hr on the phone with me and another 1 hr in person. He explained the entire process and why it made abundant sense to engage one’s own firm rather than accepting the free firm offered by my employer insurance company.
Trisha & Claudia helped & advised with all the forms as well as all correspondence to my claims agent. It took 7 months for SSDI to reach a decision in my favor. I couldn’t have achieved this outcome without Mr. Bemis & his capable, responsive staff.

We met w/ Counselor Bemis and he told us our case would be an uphill battle but the goal was to win appeal before going to a hearing….that’s exactly what happened.

I wish more people were as good as these folks! I would give them 6 stars if I could.

I doubt if it’s common for the average person to understand eligibility for Social Security benefits resulting from a medical disability. Eligibility becomes even more complicated if a person’s work disability is also involved ( where work insurance and Social Security each pay a portion – if a person does in fact qualify for Social Security ). These were my circumstances and Mr. Bemis and his staff ( Trisha ) navigated me from day 1 to day end where I received my back pay and future benefits. Thanks Bemis, Roach & Reed!!

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.

I was totally ignorant about the legal requirements of what would be needed in the event, I needed attorney representation for a potential STD/LTD claim denial. I reached out to Mr Roach firm via this website (and their link). The firms staff (Will and Dora – thank you!) professional responses to my multiple questions left me a lot more at ease with the legal process. What was most amazing was at no time was there any pressure to sign a retainer, just straight up facts presented with human compassion – to me this was priceless!!

Mr. Lloyd Bemis was a pleasure to work with. He was honest and informative from the beginning. He and his paralegal Claudia Perez made the whole social security disability application process seamless and stress free. Would recommend this firm to anyone looking for help to maneuver through the social security system.

Mr. Bemis and his assistant Claudia were caring, compassionate, very knowledgeable, and responsive. Mr. Beemis was instrumental in winning my complex SSDI case and prepared me well for my hearing in front of the ALJ. I highly recommend Mr. Beemis and the entire staff of Beemis, Roach, & Reed for Social Security Disability cases. Everyone in their office was very kind.

I highly recommend the team at Bemis, Roach & Reed. Greg Reed and his assistant Sammie helped me through my challenge with a long term disability insurance company who dropped my benefits. I wish I could put into words how I really feel about these wonderful understanding professionals. I spoke to a few law firms before deciding on Bemis, Roach & Reed and it was the best decision by far. It was such a relief to put my case into their hands, after I had unsuccessfully tried to handle it myself (being ill and dealing with an insurance company made me more ill). My advice is don’t try to do it yourself (unless youre an attorney). Call Bemis, Roach & Reed.

Greg Reed and Paralegal Sammie
Amazing Special Team who has stood with me through most difficult times and never gave up on me when times got tough like most lawyers…

Insurance companies play all kinds of legal dirty tricks to boost their millions of dollars quarterly profits to cut a person off – constantly pushing more and more updates (many times a year) for a person who many doctors, have declared permanently disabled – to bring their share prices for example 25 cents higher that quarter, and do you think they care for one moment the hardships they are placing on disabled person and their family ? – that this disabled person and family may be thrown on the streets to live under a by-pass, if insurance company finds a legal loophole to cut you off ?
Greg Reed and Paralegal Sammie have so much Strength in Character, Caring and Compassion to Really Care and do the Very Best to make sure that doesn’t happen to you and Stop insurance companies from taking advantage of a disabled person already suffering with life.

Mr. Bemis was great!!! He helped my husband get his appeal for SSDI overturned on the first go. I have been told that rarely happens, and it did for us. He genuinely cares about getting the best results for his clients, and in a timely matter. He returned all of our calls promptly and I would recommend him to anyone looking to get a favorable decision on their social security claim.

Lloyd Bemis is great lawyer. When I was hit by a careless driver, he got me taken care of well. He managed accounts with numerous insurance companies and health care providers, negotiated a favorable settlement and gave me good counsel before after and during.

Counselor Bemis and his team are miracle workers! We were told our family member’s case was going to be an uphill battle. Mr Bemis explained the goal was to get our appeal won before going to the hearing…and that’s exactly what happened. I can’t thank their entire team enough for the work they did. I can’t recommend them enough….6 stars if I could rate.

I recommend Bemis, Roach & Reed wholeheartedly! Greg Reed worked with me almost three years to get Social Security disability. His paralegal, Craig Roach, was also outstanding. They were extremely responsive in returning my calls and answering my questions. I am sure I wouldn’t have gotten disability without their outstanding representation!

I had a disability claim because of my disease that prevents me from working. My lawyer (Reed) was able to get all the documents and reports needed to fight my case. I won and I actually started crying because I was so relieved I would finally get some help with my medical issues. Highly recommend!

Mr Roach is honest,ethical, and very helpful. He is extremely knowledgeable and was exactly the lawyer I needed. I have had a long professional career, long enough to have had many varied experiences, and Mr Roach exceeded all my expectations as a lawyer and a person. He delivers! If all lawyers were like Lonnie Roach, it would be a different and better world.

Greg Reed and Craig Roach were wonderful in helping with my disability case. Thank you Mr. Reed for reminding me that all 30+ years I have worked, I paid into the very benefit I was applying for. Thank you both for your assistance, encouragement and hard work in getting my case presented to the judge. I will forever be grateful to Greg Reed for his presentation of my case, my health and my future to the judge and just how much my health has declined. I also want to say thank you to Craig for answering my questions, reassuring me of the process and helping me with my paperwork. Lastly, when Greg was asked for clarification, he went the extra mile to go through thousands of pages of health records for the judge to answer the questions she had asked to support my case.
I highly recommend Bemis, Roach and Reed for SSI/SSDI and any other legal needs you may have.

Legal issues are very difficult and emotional at best. Choosing the best lawyer for my case was a real concern for me. During the initial discussion Lloyd Bemis listened to me with compassion and understanding and made me feel comfortable. I was overwhelmed and he patiently explained the process I was about to go through, how long it could take and what I could expect. I left feeling – ok, I know what’s going on now and I can make the best decision for me. When I couldn’t talk to him he always returned my calls promptly. He gave me good advice and I believe it really helped to have an attorney who had so much experience and knowledge on my type of case.
The road was long but Lloyd stayed with me the whole way never giving up. He and his staff were always willing to take the time to answer my questions and I always felt well cared for. I have great confidence in him and his staff –
he knows what he’s doing, is very professional, and you can trust him.
Lloyd has become a great friend though this process. I would recommend him to any of my friends and family.

After nearly three years, my disability case has wrapped up with a judgement in my favor. Greg Reed was excellent, as was Craig, his paralegal. Between the two of them, they were always on top of my case, were there to answer any questions, and were extremely informative throughout the whole procedure. Not once did I feel like they put me on the back burner. Every phone call was returned promptly, and every email was replied to within 24 business hours. As opposed to the enormous disability law firms you see in ads, going with Bemis, Roach & Reed allowed me to deal only with the lawyer’s paralegal, and the lawyer who would be physically present throughout the process. So, when the time came to sit in front of a judge, I was joined by someone I actually knew, had shaken hands with, and had joked with and conversed with in person, more than once. On top of all that, Mr Reed is a likable guy, someone that you’ll be glad has your back in the fight that is applying for disability.
Mr. Reed was an absolute rock of stability in the courtroom when it came time for my hearing, which greatly allayed my own nervousness. I initially chose this law firm to handle my disability case because their office is only a few miles away from my home, but that was merely an incredibly happy coincidence as I couldn’t have possibly made a better choice.

Thanks Lloyd! I just wanted to express my appreciation for Lloyd Bemis and company for all they did for me recently. This is a great group of folks who held my hand through a bad place for a long time. It’s so nice to have something go my way for a change and I owe all that to the wonderful friends I have at Bemis, Roach and Reed. They really know their stuff. I don’t know if they are the right one for you but they sure did right by me.
I just really wanted to tell Lloyd thanks, my life is better now because of him.

This is a wonderful law firm! When I developed MS and was no longer able to work I had no idea the antics of the insurance company I was about to encounter. They were literally “setting me up” to fail. They were telling me everything was going to be ok and denying my benefits, saying one thing and doing another. That is when I decided to speak to a lawyer for advice. I spoke to a couple of different ones, and then Lonnie. Best choice I ever made! He is extremely knowledgeable of the disability law (good and bad), explains everything to me in detail, always takes the time to talk with me, and helped me get through a very difficult time. He is very thoughtful, honest, knowledgeable, and direct which is exactly what I need. He is on top of everything and he took a huge load off of my shoulders! I absolutely highly recommend Lonnie and his firm!

I found that I had a disease called “Schlerodema” and was no longer able to work. I was afraid that I would not be able to take care of my family if I wasn’t able to continue working.I applied with Social Security for disability by myself and was denied. There was so much paperwork to file and I was very confused with all the procedures and the deadlines.I called Bemis Roach and Reed and they were able to help me get all the proper paperwork filed, ordered all my medical records and with their help I was approved for disability. Without their help I would still be lost in the pile of paperwork!!The attorneys and their staff answered all my questions and were very professional and knowledgeable.I trusted them with my case and I would recommend them to anyone who needs an attorney that cares.Mr. E

Greg Reed: EXCELLENT social security disability attorney. I am wowed by greg reed. he handled my son’s disability case & was patient with the government process through 2+ years. he is so compassionate with his clients, and so very skilled walking the tightrope of government process. i HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who has need to place a social security disability claim. i wasn’t with much hope that my son would prevail, despite his profound disabilities, but with mr. reed’s skill my son won & was granted 2 1/2 years of back payment. (which had been denied by the government in 3 hearings prior to the judicial hearing finally scheduled). greg was calm & reassuring throughout the entire time. he communicated so well with my son throughout the entire process & let us know, concretely, all the things we could do to help win the case. my family is deeply grateful for mr. reed’s taking on the case.

I was very nervous and having someone that cares about your case in your corner was priceless! By the way, we won our case!

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. Lloyd knew the entire insurance process inside out, drawing on his experience and knowledge leading to a settlement I was comfortable with. I am so glad I chose Lloyd to be my attorney. His staff and I have become close and I would highly recommend him to my friends.
