Professional, personal, knowledgeable, communicative
After years of being at a 60% VA rating, with the possibility of having it decreased, and being denied any type of increase with another non lawyer agency, I was referred to Cuddigan law firm by another vet who got to 100%. Within 6 months, I got 3 increases, finally getting to 100% P&T. There’s no risk to the veteran. No increase on previously denied claims? ? No fee. They handle all of the hard stuff. You just have to make your appointments. They keep you informed with calls and emails. Michael was available and informative. Sean, the lawyer, personally calls and speaks with you WITHOUT charging you. If you’re on the fence or it’s time to make that move for that 100% rating, give them a call. They make it easy and they understand veterans and how the VA works. U appreciate their care, patience, and non-judgemental approach. Don’t wait! I should have called sooner.

True Experts in Social Security Disability
Thank you so very much for the assistance and for the quick results to allow me to focus on my health battle. I want to give a special thanks to Kendra who was my intake specialist. She was the first person I met with and had so much patience explaining the process and gathering all the needed information. She helped me when my world was turned upside down to move forward. I appreciate her and Cuddigan Law.

Veterans Administration disability compensation case
Sean Cuddigan took my VA disability case years after I started pursuing my options with VSO’s and other sources of assistance. Although I ended up paying 20% of my back compensation as the legal fee as negotiated by law, it was worth it. Sean and his assistant Mike walked me through the exhaustive process and was able to achieve what I could only dream about for years. It was a multi-step process that was worth every moment of guidance that Sean provided. I received a 100% rating from only 10% that I received working with another firm. Sean was able to help me to change my life and relieved me of the financial burden of the disability that I suffered so many years before during my military service.

Compassionate, Thorough, and SUPPORTIVE
Sean and his team went above and beyond for me. After a year of trying to work through the disability process myself and feeling so overwhelmed and defeated, they took my case and did all of the leg work for me. For the first time since my illness began, I felt like someone had my back and was working FOR ME. They advocated for my case and let me know that they truly believed in me and in the struggles I was dealing with. The stress they relieved and the peace of mind I had knowing they were taking care of my case made all the difference in the world for me. Sean did a great job of preparing me for my appeal hearing, and ultimately, he won my Social Security Disability case.

Did not know what to expect when hiring this law firm, But sometimes in life we have to take a chance, And believe me I am glad I did, This law firm was always honest with me and how the process was going with my claim, what they said they would do they did it, Sean cunigan , got me the money I deserved and went the extra mile to get me the back pay they tried to cheat me out of, so I can say without a doubt they will work for the people, so give them a chance and let them get you what you deserve.

Great attorney and great staff
Sean and his staff were very professional, helpful, and knowledgeable about VA disability and was able to get me my full disability. I’ve tried for years to get it and haven’t been able to. After talking to them and hiring them, they were able to get me my full disability within about 8 months.

Disability
Cuddigan law accepted me to fight for disability. They kept me informed on what I needed to do with paperwork. They were in contact with social security on my behalf. I was approved for disability. I definitely recommend using this attorney to apply for social security disability. Don’t do it alone. I did years ago and was denied. Highly recommend Cuddigan law.

Social Security Disability Claim....Great Success
I would recommend Cuddigan Law to anybody seeking Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). I suffered a broken back in a motorcycle accident when I was 62 years old that left me with a neurogenic bladder and bowel. After almost 3 years of physical therapy and rehab, there was no improvement in the symptoms of my injury. I was still unable to return to full-time work in any capacity and sought out Cuddigan Law to help me file for SSDI. My team, led by attorney Kimberly Schram and supported by legal assistants Ariana Parker and Audrey Besse, was superb. They were experienced and had in-depth knowledge of all the Social Security Administration’s (SSA’s) requirements from initial application through the multi-layered appeal journey. They had processes to lead me through this maze of government requirements to best shape and present my case for a successful determination. The impact of my injury on my ability to return to the full-time work force was not as evident as most injuries or sicknesses. The key to my successful determination was Ms. Schram’s knowledge of the SSA regulations and her ability to map my health issues to the specific elements of those regulations to clearly show I did not meet their own requirements to obtain full-time work. She articulately and aggressively presented these factors to a judge in my hearing that resulted in a Fully Favorable determination. I am grateful to Cuddigan Law and am confident I would not have obtained a favorable determination if not for their help.

Mr.
I had a sort of running battle with the VA of claims, denials, and appeals, since the 70's. One day I happened to see the Cuddigan Law website for help to Vets with VA claims. I liked the sound of what was on their site and decided that I would "give it one more shot," "before my checkout time." I called and talked to Sean, Who said that he thought that I had a really good case. I asked him to take my case, which he did. Sean and his team explained all of the in and outs of VA law to me and went to work for me. They kept me updated on our progress, and in what seemed short time when dealing with the VA, they informed me that I was approved. My wife and I were extremely happy that Sean and his team got me approved, since I cannot work any more. My Great Grand Nephew was a marine that got wounded in Afghanistan And I advised him to contact Sean to get help with the VA. I would recommend any vet that needs help with the VA, to contact Sean and the cuddigan Law Group.

Caring and Professional
My wife was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and finding it more and more difficult to work. the Cuddigan's, Ms. Doeden and other staff members explained, in understandable terms, what each step of the application process consisted of. At a time when we were concerned about what was going to occur when she was no longer able to work, they gave us certainty in the form of a Social Security disability income and in 29 months will have Medicare insurance. Thank you Cuddigan Law Offices!
