Consulted with me even though I didn't live in his service area!
I consulted with Mr. Hnot before filing my Social Security Disability Claim. His advice was very helpful in helping me decide whether to pursue this path or not. He also gave me a lot of insights into how the process works that I did not receive from reading my book on the subject. He is consulting with me on the next steps and I feel a lot better about my chances of getting approved. Definitely would have hired him if I lived in the area he serves.

I’d give Walter 10 Stars if I could
Walter was the absolute best attorney I have ever met. He help me with every detail of my claim and I truly believe if it were not for Walter, I would not have won my claim. He is by far the best of the best and I would recommend him over any other disability lawyer out there. He’s utterly amazing.

He’s not a phony he tries to keep record straight
I began listening to Walters U tube station. Having had one bad experience after the other imagine how surprised I was when he took my call and actually gave me real advice on air!IF YOU LISTEN he educates so many people before he hits you with a bill. I only wish he was in my state, I have dealt with many lawyers in my yrs, Walter is a blessing to people who are generally underserved or uneducated in law, their rights. We all are. He is NOT ALL @ $$ he like everyone else can’t operate totally for free. Fair and reasonable, smart, caring and thoughtful.

Divorced Spouse Benefit 10yrs plus
Sent me to the Social Security website for divorced spouse benefits if married more than ten years. Many Wives of military men end up being divorces after ten or more years of following him (now her) from place to place with little opportunity to establish a career. When divorce happens they end up with nothing. This info will help many!

Thorough
Walter’s top 50 ALJ trick question videos were extremely helpful. I watched them several times before my hearing. Also, he ran through these questions and more with me over the phone just a day or two before and coached me on how to answer them properly. He let me know what I was doing wrong and continued to ask the questions until I got it right. I would have never been ready for the hearing without Walter’s help. And I certainly wouldn’t have won my case without him.

Walter is the best!
He helped me out so much as to when to file for my SSA which turned out to be SSI at age 72 because I didnt have enough work credits. He was kind and easy to understand which is very important bc I was kind of scared, But now I have SSI and it really helps. Kudos to Walter!

The Lords Prayer
"Lord Jesus Christ, I believe you are the true Son of God and that you died on the cross to rescue me from my sins, death and to restore me to heaven to be with the Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit. I choose now to turn from my sins, my selfish ways, and every part of my life that does not please you. I choose to serve you and I choose to give my entire life to you. I believe in you. I believe you are the way, the truth, and the light. I accept you into my heart, into my soul, and into my mind. I choose to serve you and to receive your love and forgiveness. I ask you to take your rightful place in my life as my Lord and Savior. please lord of lords and king of kings come reign your peace, love, and happiness into my heart and into my soul. fill my heart and my soul with your love and your life, and help me to become a better person who is truly loving and trusting —a person like you. Please cleanse my mind, body, and soul from the demonic entities that have been tormenting me my whole life. may the blood from your sacrifice wash my sins away and restore my mind, body and soul in your name Jesus Christ. allow me to Live, Love, Learn and grow through you. please bless my soul in your holy name, the heavenly father, and the holy spirits name and help replenish the strength of my mind, body, and soul in your honor. Thank you, God of the Holy Land and the Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen"
