With over 17 years of experience, attorney R.J. Connelly followed in his father's footsteps by pursing law. Attorney Connelly represents clients in a wide variety of estate planning, probate, and elder law matters, and he is a one out of only five certified elder law attorneys in the state of Rhode Island. If you need assistance with creating an estate plan, we can help you establish a will, an irrevocable or revocable trust, advance directives for health care, a living will, and a power of attorney. We can also help you to address matters pertaining to guardianship and conservatorship and appointing an executor for your estate.

We assist personal representatives, otherwise known as executors and administrators in the administration of estates. Since these parties have a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the estate and the beneficiaries, we can guide personal representatives through probate and administration proceedings.

As a certified elder lawyer, attorney R. J. Connelly can handle all types of elder law matters whether you need help with Medicaid planning, estate planning, fiduciary services, trustee services, conservatorship or any other concern that may affect the elderly.

At Connelly Law Offices, we're here to provide you with the greatest level of legal representation that exceeds your expectations. Please, contact a Rhode Island estate planning lawyer from our firm at (401) 724-9400.
