When it became clear that I would need to leave work for an extended period, my employer sent me extremely complex long-term disability paperwork to fill out and file. I felt unable to wade through it on my own. Most LTD firms with which I spoke were unwilling to help clients with this process -- only with a later, expensive appeal if the coverage was turned down. Others seemed less than professional. Scott Riemer and his company had excellent reviews on Google, Avvo, and elsewhere that led me to call. Everyone I spoke with there was extremely professional, and I was pleased to learn that they do help clients through every step of the LTD process. I then came for a consultation and immediately knew I would be in trustworthy hands. For one set, reasonable fee they processed all my paperwork, worked with my doctors to obtain records and reports, made sure I had an employment attorney to negotiate severance from my job, and referred me to another excellent attorney to file for Social Security Disability as well. Scott is a true leader in his field. He and attorney Jennifer knew all the ins and outs of the application process, and of specific companies. Paralegal Kasandra kept in constant touch, coordinating every element so that I coud be free to rest. The case proceeded very rapidly, over just a few months, and was successful. I could not recommend Riemer and Associates more highly, and am extremely grateful for their help.

Making the decision to leave the workforce due to my disability was one of the hardest decision I have had to make thus far in my life.
I was very lucky to find Riemer and Associates to handle my disability claim.
My medical issues did not allow me to deal with my disability insurance company. I was referred to Scott Reimer by a friend and it was an excellent referral.
Scott Reimer was very generous with his time, supportive and confident on my first appointment with the firm. I realized that I am in good hands.
I worked closely with Arianna Gonzalez (paralegal) who was absolutely amazing! She was very patient with all my questions, timely with responses and diligent in following up.
Arianna Gonzalez understands what you are going through and how to effectively deal with all the nuances of an insurance claim.
Arianna is also a very nice person!
Not only my LTD claim has been approved, but Riemer and Associates also knew in advance what the disability insurance company will request.
If you are considering making a disability claim, I highly advise don't do it alone, I highly recommend having Reimer and Associates as your representatives.

Riemer and Associates handled my appeal of termination of LTD benefits. I was impressed by their data-driven approach to addressing the reasons behind the termination point by point. Paul Kampfer and Kasandra Reux, the attorney and paralegal assigned to my case, were very professional, courteous, and patient. I could also always rely on them returning my call or email within 24 hours of not sooner. I would definitely recommend Riemer and Associates for any legal matter regarding disability.
