Disability Relief for You and Your Family

When serious health problems force you out of work, it’s stressful figuring out what to do next.

Or, if you’re living with injuries or other medical conditions from your military service, you can feel neglected.

It’s easy to feel ignored by big government systems like Social Security Disability  or veterans’ disability.

Disability benefits can make a difference in your life, but it’s hard winning monthly Social Security checks or the veterans’ disability rating you deserve.

Mike Rake, a partner at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal, can make the process easier for you. He’s been representing disability clients since 2005 in both Social Security and veterans’ disability cases.

Mike feels it’s his calling to help people who’ve been dealt a difficult hand or treated unfairly—so they can reclaim their lives.

His community work in Ohio confirms it. He lives in Centerville with his wife and three daughters.

Mike and his team at HNB Law have supported Shoes 4 the Shoeless in the Dayton area; Homefull, working to end homelessness in western Ohio; the Storybook Project, connecting incarcerated mothers and their children; the Gettysburg Men’s Shelter, South Community Mental Health; St. Vincent De Paul; and the PLACES program, helping people with mental health disorders.

Mike’s support for everyday Ohioans is one reason they say “Helping me, that’s HNB.”



Support for You in a Difficult Process

Both Social Security and the US Department of Veterans Affairs use complex, unique legal systems to decide who receives disability benefits and how much. You can get overwhelmed and make mistakes.

Mike Rake has handled 3,000 Social Security Disability hearings and multiple veterans’ claims. He’s taken hundreds of disability cases to federal court and successfully argued many cases in the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. He has even lectured on disability law for the University of Dayton School of Law and the National Business Institute.

Mike knows the system and the people who work in it. He can be your guide.

Mike helps you do everything you need, such as:

  • Filing your paperwork correctly and efficiently
  • Gathering all the medical evidence you’ll need
  • Building a strong argument for your disability benefits

You can start with HNB by getting an evaluation of your claim for free.
