Social Security Disability Attorneys Serving the Western United States

At Cannon Disability Law, our Salt Lake City, Utah Social Security Disability lawyers have successfully represented disability claimant’s for over 30 years. We represent clients throughout the Western United States, including Utah, Nevada, Idaho, California, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, Colorado, and Arizona.  While our headquarters is in Salt Lake City, Utah, we travel to the cities where our client’s live. We will travel to represent you whether you live in Las Vegas or San Francisco. Our travel is at no cost to you.  And you don’t pay an attorney fee until we win your case. You can put our experience to work for you, no matter where you live.


Winning SSD and SSI benefits is not easy.  It is also not a fast process. But, we have the legal experience you need to obtain your disability benefits.  When you hire Cannon Disability Law, our attorneys are with you every step of the way. You are hiring us to be part of your team;  which we believe includes you, your family, your doctors, and us as your legal representative. We will be there to guide you through what can be a lengthy, confusing process. Additionally, we will help you complete SSA’s application and the SSA’s disability report forms. We support you throughout the long wait to appear before a judge. Therefore, when you appear as a witness in your court case before the SSA, you will be ready.


Because we are on this journey with you, our Salt Lake City Social Security Disability attorneys help you file your initial application with the Social Security Administration. We also help our clients appeal their case at each step of the disability process, including filing a request for reconsideration and a request for hearing with an SSA judge. As part of your team, we help you collect the medical records you need in order to prove disability. We also work with you and your doctors to build a winning case that proves your disability to the SSA.

As Social Security Disability experts, our Salt Lake City SSD attorneys, representatives, and paralegals have practiced disability law for 30 years. This gives us 50 years of combined experience representing and winning disability claims. We know Social Security law. Therefore, when you hire us, you are using our knowledge to help you win your case. Not only do we win in court, we also win disability benefits on appeal. Hundreds of cases are won by us at the Appeals Council and in Federal Court.


We have won over $100 million in past-due benefits for our clients;  disability benefits that our clients are entitled to after years of hard work. Disability benefits are not welfare, they are benefits that you pay for by working and paying taxes. The government puts aside disability benefits for every person who works and pays taxes, in case they ever experience a disability and can no longer work.

What you may not know is that your benefits are tied to the day you apply. With SSD benefits, there is a six month waiting period to begin benefits.  The six month waiting period applies to everyone. However, you can get back benefits one your prior to the date of application, as long as you are not working due to disability. If you are applying for SSI benefits, your benefits begin the day that you apply. This means that every day you wait to apply is a day you lose money.


Applying is easy to do. Even if you don’t want to hire a Salt Lake City Social Security Disability lawyer right now, you should still apply. It is simple. Just go to and start an online application today.  You can start an application online even if you don’t know all of the information that you need to apply. The SSA allows you to get a re-entry number and come back to finish the application when you are ready to do so.

Even though the SSA denies 70% of all disability claims that are filed, we still win. We win because we understand the law and we know what medical evidence the SSA needs to grant your disability or denial of a disability case. Additionally, our Salt Lake City, Utah Social Security Disability attorney works with you to build your case. Consider us to be part of your team.

In the past 30 years, our Salt Lake City-based Social Security Disability attorneys have successfully obtained disability benefits for over 17,000 clients. When you hire an attorney, you want one you can trust. With our team approach and our years of expertise, you can trust us to fight for your benefits. Give us a call and put our experience to work for you. You can also contact Cannon Disability Law online.


Call us now at (801) 322-2121. Or, email us using this website and we will evaluate your disability case for free. We will need to know some basic information about your disability and your work history. We will also need to know if you have already applied for benefits. It doesn’t cost you anything to have us evaluate your denial of disability case. Most importantly, if we take your case, you will not need to pay an attorney fee upfront.

Payment of a Utah disability attorney fee is contingent upon you winning your disability or denial of disability benefits. This means that you do not owe an attorney fee until we win your case. You will not owe an attorney fee if we do not win your case. To learn more about Utah SSD attorney’s fees and how we can help you, please visit “What Will It Cost?”  Or give us a call, so we can answer your questions immediately. If you cannot work because of disability, you are entitled to the disability benefits you paid for. Call now and join Cannon Disability Law on the road to success.
