Tim Cuddigan and Associates did a tremendous job for me in getting social security disability. He did everything he said he would and all of his coworkers in his office were amazing. Everything was explained throughly to me. They helped me when I needed it. I was approved first time & it only took the nine months as it said that it would. I couldn’t of done it without them. There was no stress involved whatsoever. Can’t say enough about Tim & his team! Thank you all so very much, I appreciate it to no end! Sincerely Cheryl

I hired cuddigan law to help me with my social security disability application process. I heard that the process was very difficult and acceptance was better when using a lawyer, my whole process took one year to acceptance and cuddigan law kept in touch with me throughout the whole process. I was always able to get in touch through email and phone when I needed to. Also everyone was extremely nice !! I am very happy with my results and would recommend cuddigan to others applying for social security disability.

Top Notch Legal Services! Thank you!
Cuddigan Law worked hard to assist me with my SSDI administrative hearing. Kim Schram conducted my intake and Tim Cuddigan prepared the case and took it to the SSDI hearing and prevailed. I appreciate their assistance with the process! Very professional service yet they never forgot they were dealing with an individual who had been through an arduous process of trying to heal from a vehicle accident. I would highly recommended this firm. Thank you to all involved, especially Tim Cuddigan! He is awesome!

3 Thumbs Up!
Let's face it...Lawyer lingo can be a bit confusing. But after consulting with the Cuddigan law firm, I was convinced it was the correct decision to have them represent me for my particular case. And I wasn't disappointed! Thanks to Kimberly Schram and the Cuddigan team for a positive result.

Ariana is the best. In one of the most stressful times in my life she took the burden off me and handled my case with disability. It was such a blessing as I had enough to stress over with my health. I really appreciate it!!

Disability
I highly recommend Cuddigan Law with out them I definitely wouldn't have had my disability increased, I had no clue on what to do, have to say they pretty much did all the work and always kept me informed. Have to thank Mike and Sean for all you have done for me.

Very helpful.
I called my lawyer to ask if she did disability claims. She said Cuddigan Law would be the best choice and she was right. They were very supportive and helpful. Answered my calls and email questions right away. The disability forms can be overwhelming, so it helps to have someone who can explain things and make them easier to understand. They follow up with SS disability for you and they keep you informed at every step. Thank you to Ariana and all of the Cuddigan team.

After contacting Cuddigan Law office and inquiring about my situation, they were extremely helpful & informative. Very professional and caring at the same time. They eased any worry I had and kept in contact with me regularly. Every contact I had, was empathetic to my situation & assured me they will take care of everything. They did exactly that. I am very pleased with how quickly and smoothly my case went. I would definitely recommend this law firm.

Cuddigan Law Firm exceeded my expectations.
I greatly appreciated being matched with a contact at Cuddigan Law Firm to assist me and guide me through the Disability process. Throughout my whole and entire experience as a client with Cuddigan Law, I had a strong and solid faith in their abilities and capabilities. Cuddigan Law's experience, professionalism, and expertise landed my case a win. For this enormous accomplishment, I feel, at least to me that this is huge. For many, many years of my life ahead of me, I have Cuddigan Law to thank in transitioning my life, to finally having hope. I was previously living months and months on end, in an emergency homeless shelter. Now, I have solid stability in my life. Thank you so very much!

Relieved me of this added stress
Having heard how difficult the SSDI application process is, I took the advice from a friend and hired Mr Cuddigan to handle my case. He and his staff know the process and kept me informed throughout the lengthy process assuring me when I was losing confidence. My case was approved the first filing which was a huge blessing!

Testimonial
I hired this Law firm to help me with my Veterans Disability claim. I had tried in vain to file my own claim but gave up after many months of frustration and heartache trying to do it myself. The paperwork from the VA is very complicated and down right confusing. My attorney was Sean and the initial contact was with Mike Mosites. Their communications, follow-up and response was nothing short of stellar. I am so grateful that I hired this firm as I now receive the Disability compensation that I deserve.
