We hired Lloyd Edward Bemis to help navigate the maze that is Social Security Disability.
We are pleased with the outcome as Social Security eventually recognized the disability.

Mr. Bemis and his assistant Trisha helped me win my Social Security Disability Appeal in just one month. After my phone consult with Mr. Bemis, they went into action right away. They were very helpful and compassionate.

I was extremely happy with my dealings with Mr. Bemis and his law firm. They were attentive and extremely capable. They communicated with me regularly and set my expectations on how the process would proceed. It took some of the anxiety out of the process for me.

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.

Wow! I never thought it would be a pleasant experience with attorneys but these guys made a believer out of me! They were down to earth, and so easy to work with . Dora, Claudia and Trisha were awesome in their willingness to work with me all the time, they understood not only about the case but my personal situation as well and always had kind hearts and words of encouragement. Thank you for all the hard work you accomplished for me, it was a pleasure!

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 can’t give enough credit to their entire team. They shoot straight and what impressed me was their knowledge and experience in dealing with the red tape mess. 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!!

From the first consultation I knew that I was in good hands. Compassion and intelligence was expressed. Mr. Lonnie Roach made me feel as if I were his only priority. When you feel helpless, he provides hope and honesty. My life was in his hands and he treated me with dignity. Your search is over with this law firm. Thank you for giving me my life back. My only wish would be that you took on car insurance companies too! God Bless you all.i

Fantastic law firm with the personal touch! From the first contact to the final meeting, the staff at Bemis, 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.

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.
If you want the Very Best Lawyer to Protect and Help you through legal maze – Social Security Disability, Long Term Short Term Disabilities and most health related legal issues, … And Want to Sleep at Night knowing you have the Very – Very Best Lawyer and Legal Team … Do as I and many other 5 star full rating clients have done, contact Greg Reed

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.

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.
