Robert has expanded HNB’s efforts in appealing denials of disability benefits to higher levels, bringing more cases to federal court than at any other time in the firm’s more than 40-year history.
His work on disability appeals has helped not only his clients, but workers needing disability benefits across the country, when he successfully argued a case before the US Court of Appeals 6th Circuit, Gayheart v. Commissioner, that expanded the rights of disability claimants with mental impairments to have their doctors’ opinions respected.
With his extensive knowledge of the topic, he speaks to support groups and civic organizations about disability law. He became the youngest partner in HNB history in 2018.
Even before joining HNB, Robert devoted his legal career to helping people in need, working two years for the legal aid office in Chillicothe, providing assistance to people with limited economic means.
He was selected as a Rising Star for 2020-23 by Super Lawyers. The rating service said the distinction is for top-rated lawyers in specific practice areas. Robert rated among the highest Social Security Disability attorneys.
Every day he upholds the values of our firm: “Helping me, that’s HNB.”Talk to HNB Talk to HNB

Attorney Robert Walter, right, walks down the hall with a visitor at the HNB law firm. Rob helps clients stay financially afloat after health problems disrupt their lives.
America’s program providing disability benefits for military veterans is a complex legal system of its own, with its own rules distinct from Social Security Disability. If you’re a veteran of the armed forces, it can be an important source of support to help you lead a secure life after your service.
Veterans’ disability has a sliding scale of levels of benefits depending on the severity of your service-connected injuries or ailments, from partial disability up to total disability—unlike the all-or-nothing approach Social Security applies to all workers, veterans or not.
As a veterans’ disability lawyer, Robert Walter can help you navigate this process and fight for the maximum level of benefits that you qualify to receive. Let HNB help you make sure the government properly compensates you for the lasting health effects of your time in the military.Call HNB Now! Call HNB Now!
