What Will It Cost To Hire Cannon Disability Law?
HIRE CANNON DISABILITY LAW FOR NO MONEY UP FRONT
When you hire Cannon Disability Law, we only charge an attorney fee when we win your case. If we don’t win, you don’t pay an attorney fee.
Most of the time, when you hire an attorney, you have to pay a retainer. This means, you must pay the attorney up front for their work. For example, before most attorneys even begin to work on your case, they will make you bring them a $2000 attorney fee that you pay up front. But with Cannon Disability, you can hire us for no money up front. Therefore, you have nothing to lose by calling us to see if we can help you win your benefits.
In the last 30 years, we have won more than $100 million in ongoing and past due SSDI and SSI benefits for our clients. Contact us today or give us a call for free at 801-322-2121.
When you become a client of Cannon Disability Law, our lawyers help you every step of the way. We will help you file your application for Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income benefits. Also, we can appeal your case to the Appeals Council. Likewise, we can take your case to Federal Court. Fighting SSA’s decisions is what we do.
We will assist you in filing the necessary applications and appeals. Also, we will make sure that each document meets our strict standards. We also request your medical records, from your past and present doctors, and follow up on your application to make sure the SSA is giving your case the attention it deserves.
DO YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING BENEFITS INCREASE IF YOU HIRE CANNON DISABILITY?
The answer to that question is “yes.”
If you hire an attorney, your chances of winning SSD and SSI benefits increase.
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) found that hiring an attorney helps people win their SSDI and SSI case.
In fact, the GAO found that people who had an attorney with experience were granted benefits at a rate nearly 3 times higher than those without a lawyer.
Having a better chance at winning is always wonderful. We think there are many reasons for this fact. But, the most important reason you have a better chance is that when you hire an attorney with experience, we help you prepare your case for success. Knowing what to do is half the battle. Only legal experience can give you the extra push to success in your benefits claim.
THERE IS NO CHARGE TO MEET WITH US
There is no charge for us to review your case over the phone or to visit our offices. You can hire our legal team to help you after your free review of your case. If you decide to visit our office, we appreciate you making an appointment first.
When you call us, our staff will ask you basic questions and tell you whether we can help you. Our staff will also set up an appointment for you with a lawyer or our new client intake team. There is no charge for meeting with us. Best of all, you will not be forced to become our client simply because you meet with us or ask us questions.
You will not owe an attorney fee unless our firm wins your case. However, payment for medical records is your responsibility. Fortunately, the average cost of getting medical records on a case ranges between $50 and $150. The cost goes up if you have more doctors that treat you for your mental and physical conditions.
You will need to pay your treating doctor for a copy of your medical records. You can pay for records with a credit card or check. Alternatively, you can ask your doctor to provide you a free copy of your medical records. Once you have your personal copy, we can make a copy of those records and submit it to the SSA.
HIRE CANNON DISABILITY BECAUSE WE WIN BENEFITS
At Cannon Disability, we have won over 20,000 SSDI and SSI cases. Our success rate is based on our experience and the fact that we work with our clients as a team.
Some attorneys claim they have a very high success rate, but that success rate is based on winning a few hundred cases. Those firms carefully select their cases based on factors such as the advanced age of the client or the severity of their medical condition. We take cases we believe in. That includes cases for young people and people who have a combination of mental and physical conditions.
Our clients tell us they can’t work and we believe them. While we don’t win every case, we care more about our clients than having a perfect success rate.
We are in the business of helping people from the outset of their SSD and SSI claim. Therefore, our Salt Lake City Social Security Disability attorney help our clients with their application and we help them fill out the government’s paperwork. Obtaining the medical evidence you need to win your case is what we do. Learn more about the importance of medical records in your case.
WE ONLY CHARGE AN ATTORNEY FEE WHEN WE WIN YOUR CASE
This is called a contingency fee. When we win your benefits case at the lower appeals levels or at the hearing level, we charge you an attorney fee equal to 25% of your back due benefits. Currently, however, the attorney fee is capped at a maximum amount of $7,200.
For example, if you win $10,000 in back benefits, we will charge you $2,500, which is 25 percent of your back benefit. If you win $100,000 in back benefits, our firm will charge $7,200. In the future, if the government raises the amount of the fee cap, then our attorney fee cap will increase to that level.
All attorneys in a Social Security Disability case are subject to the attorney fee cap. This means that no attorney or law firm can charge you more than 25% of your back benefit or more than the cap the SSA has set on fees. Why? Because that is the law. If an attorney tries to charge you more than the amount set by the SSA, then they could lose their license to practice as an attorney. If you have more questions about attorney fees, then read our article, “Attorney Fees in Disability Cases.”
Since all attorneys charge the exact same amount, does that mean all law firms are equal? No. You are going to pay the same price for any law firm that you hire. So, hire the best firm with the most legal experience in Social Security law – Cannon Disability Law. We are the law firm with the most legal experience and the best track record.
WHAT ARE THE COSTS OF A DISABILITY CASE?
In addition to paying the attorney fee, when you hire Cannon Disability, you will need to pay the costs of your case. But those costs are minimal and consist of a low fee for office supplies. Typically, our office fee for our costs is less than $100. If necessary, there is also a fee for getting a copy of your medical records. We don’t charge a fee for medical records if you can collect them for free.
However, if you want to collect your own records, then you need to do so long prior to your hearing and possibly again, prior to your hearing. Many people are able to access their medical records through their insurance medical portal. That way you can get your medical records for free. Remember, you will probably have to get your records more than once in order to keep your evidence up to date. If we collect your records, we will pass the bill from the doctor on to you.
Our office accepts credit cards to pay the doctor who provides your medical records. Also, you can pay you doctor directly for your medical records and deliver them to us. We will make a copy of them for you. Medical evidence and the support of your treating doctor is crucial to winning your case.
We will let you know if we need your help getting medical records, so you are not charged high medical record request fees. When you choose to hire Cannon Disability, we become your legal team. Therefore, we present your case in the best manner possible.
DISABILITY BENEFITS ARE NOT A HANDOUT
Social Security Disability benefits are not a handout, they are an “entitlement.” Do not let the the people in Congress confuse you with their words. An “entitlement” means you PAID for it. It does not mean it is “free.” Also, it does NOT mean that it is a government handout. Instead, your benefits are an “entitlement” because they BELONG TO YOU.
Every time you get a work check, the government takes some of that money to put away for you in case you became disabled. That money is yours. In other words, you paid for it, so you are entitled to it. If you want to learn more about how the Disability Trust fund works, read here.
You deserve the best attorney to obtain the benefits that belong to you. They belong to you, because you paid for them. We offer all of our clients our very best legal services, every step of the way. When you hire Cannon Disability, you get the benefit of our experience.

ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION WHEN YOU WONDER ABOUT HIRING CANNON DISABILITY
Finally, ask yourself this question.
What will be the cost of not hiring Cannon Disability?
The chance of winning your case triples if you hire an attorney with experience in Social Security law.
If you do not win your case, then you will not have any income for the future. You will also not win your past due disability benefits. Likewise, if you do not win, you will not owe an attorney fee.
Remember, you only pay us if we win your case. If we win, you might owe us a few thousand dollars out of your back benefit. But, you will win benefits every month for the rest of your life until you reach your full retirement age, which is probably 67 years old. At that point, we will have won you a higher retirement benefit too. So, the decision you make about who you hire right now, will impact your future. Therefore, hire the law firm you can depend on – Cannon Disability Law.
In reality, the attorney fee that you pay us if you win your case is very low. Especially if you consider that you are seeking SSD and SSI benefits for the next 10-30 years of your life. And that if we win your case, you will also receive a higher retirement benefit too. If you are worried about the attorney fee, stop worrying. We are well worth the cost. What will the cost be to you if you lose your case? Once you think of it that way, the choice is easy. Hire Cannon Disability today.
