For his entire legal career Sean Cuddigan has focused exclusively on winning Social Security and VA benefits for people who have disabilities. He joined Cuddigan Law, a family run firm, as a law clerk in 2005 and was admitted to the bar in 2008. He represents Social Security clients in Nebraska and Iowa and VA clients nationwide as an accredited VA attorney.

 As a highly skilled advocate, he assists clients with filing initial applications, he files appeals on their behalf, and he vigorously represents them at 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 spends time with his wife Kortney and children--Jack, Emily, and Maggie. Sean enjoys coaching and attending his children’s sporting events. He also enjoys watching Husker football, reading, socializing with friends, and working out. Most importantly, the Cuddigan family enjoys attending Creighton sporting events, especially Creighton basketball games.
