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 splits half of the firm’s caseload with Tim . 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 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.
