“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.”

Partner Lloyd Bemis Social Security disability lawyer
Lloyd’s exceptional legal skills, his comprehensive case preparation and compassion for his clients make him one of the top attorneys in Texas for appealing denied disability claims. Social Security disability is the primary focus of his practice.

Upon graduation from law school Mr. Bemis worked with a national law firm’s Austin office and became trained in the firm’s Insurance Defense and Commercial Litigation section. He represented insurance carriers, individuals and businesses who sued for negligence, insurance bad faith, deceptive trade practices and contractual claims. He also represented a variety of health care providers and corporations in both personal injury and commercial claims.

As a result of his success as a defense attorney, Mr. Bemis was invited to work as an attorney in a plaintiff’s firm on the side of individual personal injury victims in 1988. Mr. Bemis soon became the firm’s lead litigation attorney. Mr. Bemis’ future partner, Lonnie Roach, later became a member of the same firm; after several years of practicing together as litigation attorneys, Mr. Bemis, Mr. Roach, and Mr. Greg Reed, an attorney at another firm, decided to leave their respective firms and form Bemis, Roach & Reed in 1993.

His clients have included those seeking long term disability insurance, including ERISA plans, and Social Security disability.
