Since elder law is an incredibly broad area of law, almost every lawyer has their areas of expertise. Elder law covers all topics that people may face as they start to reach the age of retirement, including retirement planning, conservatorship, and fiduciary services. It is important to find an attorney who has knowledge of the elder network. Attorney Connelly is a Certified Elder Law Attorney, which makes him one of an elite group of elder law attorneys with that title. His experience and passion for elder law ensure that our clients will receive excellent elder law guidance and advice.
Probate refers to the process of administering and processing a person's estate through the legal system after they pass away. Probate law ensures that your estate is transferred to the correct people in an orderly manner. Almost all estates must pass through probate prior to their distribution, and certain steps must be completed in order to properly close a probate case.
Everyone who owns something has an estate. An estate may consist of a person's car, house, other real estate properties, and personal items. When you create an estate plan, you dictate how and to whom you want your items to be distributed to after you pass away. Without an estate plan, your assets and properties may be divided according to state law.
Within fiduciary services, a fiduciary must act solely in a person's interests. When a person is hired as a fiduciary, they may not benefit from their client unless they have the client's consent. A fiduciary may manage and protect a person's assets, act as an attorney in fact, pay a person's bills, and perform representative payee and trustee services.
If you need assistance with estate planning, probate law, or elder law, please contact our firm. Our attorney is dedicated to successfully meeting our clients' end goals. We have worked with every probate court in Rhode Island as well as courts in Eastern Connecticut and Southeastern Massachusetts and have helped clients create all types of estate planning documents. For clients who are interested in what elder law services we provide, please visit our elder law page, or contact our firm.
Elder law encompasses a wide range of legal services and advocacy for individuals and families of all ages. Some may be caring for their aging parents. Older citizens without family support may need help. Younger disabled folks may need services, such as a guardianship or fiduciary services. From estate planning and Medicaid planning to complex matters of financial exploitation by a caregiver or a family member are within the scope of our elder law practice. We are committed to protecting elderly and disabled people and their families throughout Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Southeastern Massachusetts.
