Sean joined his father, Tim, in representing disability claimants as a law clerk in December 2005. Since he was admitted to the Nebraska Bar in September 2008,  90% of his practice has been devoted to Social Security and Veterans' disability. Sean split half of the firm’s caseload with Tim prior to Philip Martin joining the firm in August 2012. He assists clients with filing initial applications, filing appeals, and representation at the administrative hearings.

“The biggest enjoyment I get out of practicing law is making a difference in my client’s life. There is no greater sense of accomplishment than to help a client get ready for a hearing, win the hearing, and to help the client get the financial support and medical benefits that they need. A lot of my clients really struggle during the disability process and it makes me happy to see them smile after they win their case.”

In Sean’s spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife Kortney and children-Jack, Emily and Maggie. He also enjoys watching Husker football, reading, socializing with friends, and running. Most importantly, the Cuddigan family enjoys attending Creighton sporting events, especially Creighton basketball games. To that end, Sean enjoys coaching Jack in the local YMCA basketball league, the Mighty Hoopsters league, a competitive group of kindergartners that are trying to channel their inner Doug McDermott. Below, is a picture of Jack and Emily before a Bluejay basketball game:
