What Will It Cost To Hire Cannon Disability?

money for social security disability attorney


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. 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 disability benefits.

In the last 30 years, we have won more than $100 million in past-due disability 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. Also, we can appeal your case to the Appeals Council. Likewise, we can take your case to Federal Court. Fighting SSA’s unfavorable decisions is what we do.

We will assist you in completing the necessary applications, questionnaires, and appeals, and 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.


The answer to that question is “yes.”

If you hire an attorney, your chances of winning disability benefits increase.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO), which keeps track of Social Security’s statistics, found that hiring an attorney helps claimant’s win their case.

In fact, the GAO found that claimants who had representatives were allowed benefits at a rate nearly 3 times higher than those without representatives.

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 disability claim.


There is no charge for us to evaluate your case over the phone or to visit our offices. You can hire Cannon Disability to help you after your free consultation. If you decide to visit our office, we appreciate you making an appointment first.

When you call us, a paralegal will ask you basic questions and tell you whether we can help you. The paralegal will also set up an appointment for you with a lawyer or new client specialist. There is no charge for meeting with us. Most importantly,  there is no obligation 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. Payment for medical records is your responsibility. Fortunately, the average cost of obtaining medical records on a case ranges between $50 and $150, depending on how many physicians treat you for your disability.

You will need to pay your treating physician for a copy of your medical records. You can pay for records with a credit card or check. Alternatively, you can ask your doctor’s office 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.


At Cannon Disability, we have won over 20,000 disability 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 cases based on the client’s advanced age or severe disability. We take cases we believe in.  That includes disability cases for young people, and people with a combination of impairments, including mental and physical illness.

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 disabled people from the outset of their disability 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.

This is called a contingency fee. When we win your disability 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 $6,000. In November 2022, the maximum cap will raise to $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 $6,000. If we win your case after November 2022, our attorney fee will raise to the cap of $7200. 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 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. 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 law.

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 to any law firm that you hire. So, you need to make sure that you hire that law firm with the most legal experience and the best track record. That is Cannon Disability Law.


​In addition to paying the attorney fee, you will need to pay the costs of your case. But those costs are minimal and consist of a low fee for office expenses. Typically, our office fee for expenses is less than $100. If necessary, there is also a fee for obtaining 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. This will 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 for and collect your medical records from your doctor and deliver them to us. 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 unnecessary medical record request fees. When you choose to hire Cannon Disability, we become your legal team. Therefore, we present your case  in the strongest manner possible.


Social Security Disability benefits are not a handout, they are an “entitlement.” Do not let the politicians confuse you with their words. An “entitlement” means you paid for it. It does not mean it is “free.” It does not mean that it is a government handout.

Every time you earn a paycheck, 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.

You deserve the best representation 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 expertise.


Hire Cannon Disability, because we will represent from the outset of your disability case. Many law firms do not help you file your application for benefits. We do.

Our experts will help you apply for benefits when you are ready to file your application at Social Security’s website. Or, we can start to represent you at any point during the appeals process.

We can represent you at a hearing before an administrative law judge, before the Appeals Council, or in Federal Court. Put our years of legal expertise to work for you. We have won over 20,000 disability cases.

Please call us and we will answer any questions you have about becoming our client. You can also contact us and we will call you if you send us your phone number through our contact form. We cannot guarantee that we will win your case. However, if you hire Cannon Disability, we will do our best to win your case.


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 a disability attorney with experience.

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 disability benefits every month for the rest of your life until you are 67 years old.

The attorney fee is very low, considering that you are seeking disability benefits for possibly 10-30 years of your life. 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.
