36 YEARS EXPERIENCE, BOARD CERTIFIED, I AM DEDICATED TO WINNING YOUR DESERVED DISABILITY CLAIM.

Lloyd E. Bemis represents clients with Social Security disability claims.  He is Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Consumer and Commercial Law as well as Personal Injury Trial Law.

Mr. Bemis is a founding partner of Bemis, Roach & Reed, which was established in 1993 in Austin, Texas. Mr. Bemis grew up in Austin and graduated with highest honors from the University of Texas (Summa Cum Laude) with a Bachelors of Business Administration in Finance in 1981. He earned his law degree from the University Of Texas School Of Law in Austin in 1984 and was admitted to the State Bar of Texas that same year.

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.

Bemis, Roach & Reed has represented individuals with personal injury, insurance bad faith and disability claims for over 20 years. His clients have included those seeking long term disability insurance, including ERISA plans, and Social Security disability. He is admitted to practice in United States District Court, All Texas Districts. He has also argued before the Federal Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Lloyd enjoys spending time with his wife Lyra and their dog Raz. They go camping when they can and love to travel.

social security disability
If you want the best care and service for your disability case I recommend Bemis Roach and Reed. I especially would like to thank Trisha Wilson, Bertha Howard and Craig Roach for assisting me with paperwork and support. Mr. Lloyd Bemis was my attorney and he won my case. He drove down from Austin to San Antonio for my appeal in front of the administrative law judge. I was awarded benefits because he presented my case clearly and correctly with a common sense approach. Thank you!!

Highly recommended!
My experience with Bemis, Roach & Reed was outstanding! Applying for SSDI is daunting unless you have representation. They made the process so much easier and kept me fully informed along the way. My case manager, Amber, was totally on top of it. She was very responsive when I had a question or concern. If you need representation for SS or SSDI, these are the people you want on your team.

Personal, respectful, caring, professional
Dealing with insurance issues means dealing with complexity when you barely have the capacity to deal with daily life! The attorneys and staff at BRR understand the and were there for our family. The results were the best and most importantly we felt cared for and respected at a time when we were down and the insurance providers were treating us as just another number! Ms Eva was there for our family in ways that are above and beyond. Thank you!

Recommendation
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. Thank you, Marla

Hired for SSDI case
I was extremely happy with my dealings with Mr. Beamis 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.

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.

Lloyd Bemis - Great Attorney
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.
