So helpful
When I got sick and reached the point I was no longer able to work, it added a further piece of stress to our family as we lost my income and had medical and prescription bills piling up on top of it. I applied for SSDI but was denied at the first two stages. Mr. Reed and everyone in his office was courteous, helpful, professional, and walked me through every step of what I needed to do. My medical condition is very rare, and I sometimes run into the problem of doctors who haven't heard of it and assume I'm making it up. I greatly feared this would happen with the judge. Mr. Reed collected the right medical information, collected the right information from me in interviews, and when it came time to present my case to the judge, did an excellent job of laying everything out in a way that not only explained my condition clearly, but also showed how profoundly this had impacted me. Mr. Reed won my case. I am so grateful.

Excellent Lawyer
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.

The process was stressful until I contacted BR&R.
The team at Bemis, Roach & Reed, specifically Ms. Monica Mendez and Mr. Greg Reed provided guidance, communication and legal assistance at first class level. Going through the process was stressful until I contacted BR&R. From the moment I met Ms. Mendez and Mr. Reed I trusted the process. The guidance and communication from Ms. Mendez was timely and accurate. She is professional and compassionate. Her continued reassurance through-out the process was heartfelt. Each case is unique. Mr. Greg Reed was direct, action specific and approachable. His legal knowledge, timeliness, and deliverables are invaluable. I am thankful for BR&R.

Efficient & Dedicated Team
This firm is professional and efficient. Mr. Greg Reed and his associate, Monica, made the process easy. They helped me through the paperwork and responded to Social Security's requests. Always available to answer concerns. Obtaining approval at the first step. You could not ask for a better team. I highly recommend Bemis, Roach & Reed.

Very Satisfied Client
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!

Caring, Compassionate and extremely Competent SSD lawyer
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.

Excellent attorney
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!

Thank you to Mr. Reed and Staff
Greg Reed and Craig Roach were wonderful in helping with my disability case. Thank you to 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. Sincerely, Rachael P.

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.
