Southern New England's Certified Elder Law Attorney
Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts Certified Elder Law Attorney
Litigation - Martha's Vineyard
When seniors begin to prepare their estate, they must be aware that some individuals or entities would like to manipulate them for selfish reasons. Far too often, our elder law attorney has seen cases where seniors are taken advantage of by those closest to them.
The results can be disastrous, up to a complete dismissal of the senior's wishes when they pass away without intervention. These situations must be addressed promptly and professionally.
We proudly assist our clients with estate litigation cases throughout Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Martha's Vineyard. When it is necessary to protect a client’s rights, Connelly Law's attorneys and paralegal staff are aggressive and thorough in advocating for the interests of a family and its caregivers.
With our legal counsel, we can help you reach conclusions in matters pertaining to:
Contested Wills - If a will is contested during probate, you will likely need civil litigation to end the matter and decide how the will should be interpreted.
Breach of Fiduciary Duties - Personal representatives or trustees to an elder’s estate are permitted special access or fiduciary duties to help manage it. When they do not act in the best interest of the elder, they have breached their obligations and caused legal concern for everyone else.
Conversion of Assets - Dishonest parties will do what they can to gain a profit from an elder’s will or passing. We can protect your elder’s estate from financial exploitation, even if we must take the matter to court.
Guardianships and Conservatorships
Lack of Capacity
Disinherited children or spouses
Putting off necessary estate litigation does not resolve the matter and may create additional problems for you and your loved ones. We suggest you take the initiative and retain the services of Martha's Vineyard's Elder Law Attorney at Connelly Law Offices, Ltd.
Contact us today and we can explain what we can do to protect your rights when litigation is necessary.
Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut Certified Elder Law Attorney
"Litigation is the process of moving through a lawsuit. Its purpose is to remedy existing problems. In elder law, litigation generally involves a court proceeding or mediation involving a power-of-attorney accounting, contested guardianship, contested conservatorship, contested will or probate proceeding, trust contest or contested trust administration, elder abuse, or financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult. At Connelly Law, we staunchly represent our clients during such actions."
