An encyclopedia of SSI/SSDI information
Mr. Hnot has provided me with in-depth consultation regarding my Disability. No matter the strange question you may encounter while dealing with the SSA, Walter will endeavor to find an answer if he doesn't know it already. Not often will you find yourself calling your attorney a kind person. In this case, you'll notice right away. If you require a Social Security attorney, I cannot recommend Mr. Hnot enough.

Walter . Period.
What a patient, kind, and helpful human being. Treats everyone with kindness and respect . I've never heard him NOT immediately know the answer to mine, or anyones question. And no, he is not a robot. ( Just a lil survey humor)

Consultation
Attorney Walter Hnot, responded within minutes to a question that I asked him via text. He was patient with me and gave me a blueprint on how to move forward with my case. I cannot say enough great things about his professionalism. He went above and beyond and I highly recommend him.

Excellent video on disability and pets
Very clear, honest information on why having a pet can get you denied as being disabled. He is correct on many points, and obviously well spoken. I wish he were in New York, he could help a lot of people here.

I have been watching Attorney Hnot Disability Resolutions videos all through my disability journey. I received my fully favorable decision today. The information I got from all the videos was a great help to me.

The BEST that ever did it!
I applied in 2013 for neck and back issues. My first lawyer caused me to miss my first hearing then dropped my case. Fast forward, I obtained a new one that is just as uninformative as the first. My hearing is coming, and I wanted to get educated about the process. Mr. Hnot has been instrumental in easing my nerves with my upcoming hearing. He is so knowledgeable, and I WISH I could have obtained him first. I have so much confidence. Even if I don't win, I will not take it personally thanks to what I have learned from my fantastic virtual online attorney Walter Hnot!

Wealth of Information
If you follow what this man says, you will be successful. You will not find a more personable attorney in the SSI/SSDI field. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field of practice and is able to break things down for you in order for you to clearly understand.

Not just a lawyer, but a person who cares.
While I couldn't get direct help from walter, he has helped me with an unsurmountable amount of issues regarding the Social Security Administration. He takes valuable time to help the less fortunate. More than not, he loses precious sleep to help educate all of those in need, on top of his regular grueling work as a lawyer. This is a representation of someone who really did get into law to make a difference, not just for him, but for the people. Definitely a rarity in these times. If you haven't hired him, I hope this helps you decide the right choice in my opinion.

Best attorney in America
Attorney Walter, is truly the greatest social security advocate and attorney in the country right now. Both my wife and I are on disability and please know that having a good attorney is basically a life and death situation for some of us.

Thank you for helping us learn
Your awesome I've learned alot which helps a great deal . I've been disabled going on 25 yrs , if I lost my disability benefits it would be devastating. I'm also dealing with the loss of my youngest born so living on edge with all this going on them trying to get rid of our benefits is crazy . Now I understand that there are those out their playing a roll and this is why those like myself have to endure this .we nolonger have the ability to live a completely normal life . As we all once did , so now with the little things we can do even once a wk or month , we must live in fear as if wein jail waiting to be eliminated at any moment . To bad we can't exchange places with those looking to eliminate use for 3 to 6 months . So they could truly understand how hard it is , as well how much effort it takes to be able to have but 1 barely normal day . And covering up our pain from our kids it's not easy at all . Thank you so much for what you do for us all , God bless you and your family always my floridian neighbor.

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.
