Daily Money Management
Personal finances can be complex and overwhelming for anyone, especially if you are a senior, a family member caring for a loved one, or a busy professional struggling with time management. At Connelly Law, our fiduciary department and our team of daily money managers is your advocate in all matters related to your finances. Because personal finance has become more complicated to manage, it can be hard for aging people and others who may not have the time or desire to manage the details. Our team will work with you or your loved one to ensure bills and payments are on time, records are kept up-to-date, taxes are handled, and medical bills are verified.
