Helping people who are in difficult times just comes naturally to Kendra Allison.
As an Intake Specialist, Kendra is an early point of contact for Cuddigan Law clients. She assists the attorneys in collecting important preliminary information about clients’ disability cases. Kendra supports the attorneys by talking to prospective clients to let them know what the firm does, how Social Security disability works, and to collect key information which the attorneys will use to establish the disability cases. Then Kendra schedules an initial appointment with one of the firm’s Social Security disability attorneys and mails out any necessary paperwork to prepare each client for that meeting. She also provides assistance information for those who may need medical care and is a valuable resource to answer any questions that clients may have.
“I honestly enjoy talking to people and helping whenever I can”, Kendra says. “I appreciate working at Cuddigan Law, because I get to help people every day. I want them to know they made the right choice by calling us.”
When not at work, Kendra loves to spend time with her husband (who she describes as “amazing”), her friends, and her family. She is especially devoted her young foster son who has become the heart of her family. “While he keeps all of us busy, even my 17 year-old adores him,” she says. She earned her real estate license in 2017 which has taken up a lot of her free time, but Kendra still manages to squeeze in support for a local women’s halfway house.
Her husband, Brian, has completed a five-year training program and is now a journeyman sheet metal worker and serves as a trustee on the union board. Kendra and Brian enjoy sporting events (“Go Nebraska!”), browsing at farmers markets, and generally taking part in outdoor festivities when Nebraska’s weather cooperates.
“My favorite destination is Raleigh, North Carolina to see my brother which I shoot for at least once a year,” Kendra explains.
“I am passionate about helping others and am fulfilled in my position just by that. At the law firm even if we can’t help someone, I try to give them as much information and general guidance as possible.”
