Brett Bunkall Social Security Disability LawyerPrior to working for Cannon Disability Law, he practiced family law.  He practices law in both Idaho and Utah. He is also a member of the bar in both states. Recently, he was voted a member of the Utah Legal Elite in the “Up and Coming” category. He is also a member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimant’s Representatives. Mr. Bunkall also volunteers in the community with environmental organizations. It is important to him to spend his spare time protecting the environment and the beautiful Utah mountains, where he enjoys hiking and running.


“Working with disabled clients gives me great satisfaction,” he states. “At the end of the day, I know we do our best to help our clients win their SSD and SSI benefits. These disability benefits are crucial to our clients. Oftentimes, winning disability makes all the difference for those who don’t have medical insurance, a monthly income from a spouse, or savings.

In fact, I’ve seen hundreds of people burn through their savings while waiting for a disability hearing. Our clients need Social Security disability benefits, Medicaid and Medicare, to support themselves and their families. Our clients work hard their whole lives and when they become disabled, they deserve to be paid the benefits they worked for. I became a lawyer because I wanted to make a positive impact on people’s lives. I know we do that at Cannon Disability Law.”
