Brett Bunkall is a lawyer in Salt Lake City who practices Social Security law. He has done so for the past eight years. During that time, he has won hundreds of hearings. Also, he travels to meet with our clients throughout the Intermountain West.

For example, he represents clients in Salt Lake City, Utah. He also represents clients in Las Vegas, Nevada. He travels to Boise, Pocatello, and throughout Idaho. Additionally, he is admitted to the Idaho State Bar. He also represents clients in Oakland, San Francisco, Sacramento and San Diego. Likewise, he travels to Colorado Springs, Grand Junction, Billings, Eugene, Portland, and Seattle to represent our clients.

Representing clients in different states is important to Mr. Bunkall. He believes an experienced attorney should be available to everyone who applies for SSD benefits. Likewise, if you do not have the medical evidence you need to prove you deserve benefits, then Cannon Disability is glad to help you. We have information about free and low cost health resources on this website. If you live in Utah, then read here to learn about free and low cost health resources.

Brett Bunkall Social Security Disability LawyerPrior to working for Cannon Disability Law, he did 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. He is also a member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimant’s Representatives. Mr. Bunkall also volunteers in the community. 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 individuals who need SSD benefits gives me great happiness,” 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 benefits are crucial to them. Benefits help with monthly house payments, bills and food. Oftentimes, winning benefits 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 Social Security hearing. Our clients need Social Security benefits, Medicaid and Medicare, to support themselves and their families. Our clients work hard their whole lives and when they can no longer work, they deserve to be paid the benefits they worked for. I became a lawyer because I wanted to make a positive impact for other people. I know we do that at our law firm.”


Brett Bunkall was chosen by his peers to be a member of the Utah Legal Elite. In Utah Business Magazine, he is part of a group of “Up and Coming” young lawyers who serve clients in Utah, Idaho, and Nevada.

Mr. Bunkall has won hundreds of SSD and SSI cases in the past ten years. He travels throughout the country to represent clients. His legal experience has made him one of the most successful attorneys for individuals who are seeking benefits. To hire Mr. Bunkall, contact Cannon Disability Law today. We offer a free review of your case. Additionally, you only pay an attorney fee if we win your benefits.

Brett Bunkall SSD Attorney in Salt Lake City, Utah


Cannon Disability Law has been in business for over 30 years. During that time, we have won over 20,000 SSD & SSI cases. Our lawyers and staff can help you apply for SSD benefits. We will use the SSA’s website.

However, we will still need your help to apply for SSI benefits. We need your help, because you are the only one who knows your personal information. Likewise, if you need an appeal after getting an SSA denial notice, then we can help you do that too. There are also many SSA forms that will need to be filled out. Don’t worry. If you have questions about these forms, we will answer them.

The legal team at our law firm, including our staff, has many years of legal experience. In fact, we have over 30 years of legal experience. You can’t go wrong with Brett Bunkall.

He has an excellent reputation. In your search for an attorney, think about talking with the law firm staff. Was it great? Was the staff helpful? Hire the attorney who has an excellent staff. Why? Because no attorney works alone.

Brett Bunkall, as well as our legal staff, will do what we can to help you with your benefits case. Our goal is to use our experience to help you win your SSDI and SSI benefits. We are the legal team who supports our clients.

Additionally, we want to make you happy with our legal services. Once you win your benefits, we hope you refer your friends and family members to be our clients. You need an SSD attorney who works for you. You also need one who works with you. Contact us today and see if our legal team is a good fit for you.


If you have any medical condition that prevents you from working, then we offer a free review of your case. But, what does this mean?

For most people, it means we will talk to you about your case over the phone. We will not charge you to examine the merits of your case, including questions about unemployment benefits or workers’ compensation benefits. We can even answer questions about veterans benefits. Most lawyers do charge an attorney fee to review your case. We do not.

Please understand, however, that giving you a free review of your case is not the same thing as becoming your attorney. We examine the merits of your case based upon the facts you give us.

Sometimes, we will request that you send us medical records or a copy of your SSA paperwork. We do this so we can understand the details of your case. Even if we ask for more information, it does not mean we accept your case or that we are your attorney.

You will know if you hire our legal team because we will send you our contract and other SSA paperwork to fill out. Return your paperwork to us as soon as possible. If you need help with this due to Covid, contact us.

If you do not sign and send the paperwork back, then we are not your lawyer. We will send you a stamped envelope to send the paperwork back to us.


It doesn’t cost anything to call us. As you know, we offer a free review of your case. In that review, we will tell you whether or not we think you have a good chance of winning benefits. It also doesn’t cost you any money to hire us. Why? Because you only pay us an attorney fee if we win your case.

This means if we win your case, our attorney fee comes out of your back benefits. If you do not win, there is no attorney fee to pay. Additionally, our fees have a cap of $7200. Your fee will either be 25% percent of your back benefit or $7200. You pay which ever amount is less.

For example, if your back benefit is $10,000, our attorney fee is $2500, not the maximum attorney fee of $7200. Our fee is whatever is less between the attorney fee cap of $7200 and 25% of your back benefit. Better yet, you don’t have to come up with any attorney fee up front. You do not pay an attorney fee until we win your case. Therefore, you have nothing to lose by calling us.

Talking to us is free. We promise not to pressure you on the phone. Our goal is to help you with your case and make the SSDI and SSI benefit process easier. Call us today. Speak to Brett Bunkall. We want to be your legal team and win benefits for you.
