Get the Disability Benefits You Need to Keep Going

The Social Security Administration (SSA) operates its own legal system, filled with complex procedures and endless forms, to decide who wins benefits. A mistake on your application or your appeal could result in delays or denials.

We can help you:

But it’s easy to feel like you’re lost or ignored in the giant government disability systems.

Stephanie Dobson, retired partner at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal, helped people through this for more than a decade. And in the process, she helped make HNB Law what it is today.

Stephanie represented people in Southwest Ohio and Indianapolis, Indiana, handling both Social Security Disability and veterans’ disability cases until her retirement in April 2020.

She represented the kind of lawyer that HNB values, someone who understands what her clients are going through.

She chose disability law because she has a daughter with disabilities. And she chose to help veterans after serving in the US Air Force for 10 years. Her husband, brother and son all served in the military.

Stephanie grew up in a poor family, with parents worried about putting food on the table and keeping the lights on. In her work at HNB, she aimed to make a difference for people who are “forgotten and overlooked.” And she helped instill that mission in the attorneys here today.

Stephanie’s a big part of why they say “Helping me, that’s HNB.”

Find Someone Who Knows the Disability Programs

Both the Social Security Disability and Department of Veterans Affairs disability systems can be overwhelming for people who need benefits.

Both organizations operate their own, separate legal systems to decide disability claims. They involve complicated forms, special judges and multiple opportunities for error.

HNB lawyers handle all of this:

  • Advising you on what it takes to build a strong case
  • Gathering the medical records you need
  • Filing appeals
  • Advocating for you in front of a disability judge
  • Taking your case to federal court, if that’s what it takes

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