About the Firm
The Cuddy Law Firm provides comprehensive legal services for families of individuals with disabilities. These services include representing families in special education litigation, special needs estate planning, establishment of guardianship and special needs trust administration, social security disability (SSDI) appeals, supplemental security income (SSI) appeals and in Medicaid fair hearings.
The Firm began providing legal services to families of individuals with disabilities in 2001 and operated as the Law Office of Andrew K. Cuddy. In 2012, due to growth and the opening of an office in White Plains, New York, the firm incorporated and began operation as the Cuddy Law Firm. Since 2001 the firm has represented hundreds of families in advocacy, administrative proceedings, and state and federal courts. We work closely with families to ensure that they are afforded high quality legal representation to protect the rights of their loved one with a disability and the resources of their family.
