Southern New England's Certified Elder Law Attorney

Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts Certified Elder Law Attorney

Martha's Vineyard

Martha's Vineyard is located off the southeast coast of Massachusetts and can only be reached by boat or by air.  Largely unspoiled and boasting thousands of acres of conservation land, it is one of the east coast's most picturesque, uncrowded, and unspoiled beach retreats. The Vineyard combines farmlands, ponds and marshes, wildlife, and small villages with unfettered ocean views.  It is an intimate community that looks after there own and takes pride in everything the island offers. 

The Island itself has a rich history, dating back thousands of years, and was initially settled by the Wampanoag tribe, whose ancestors continue to populate the island today.  In 1602, an English explorer, Bartholomew Gosnold discovered the island and named it after his daughter Martha.

Today, the island is a popular vacation getaway for those from major cities on the East Coast.  There are six towns on the Vineyard, West Tisbury, Chilmark, Aquinnah, Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, and Edgartown.  

Your Overall Financial Plan

Estate planning is for everyone, regardless of age or wealth. You should not wait until retirement age to set a plan in place, especially if you're married, a parent, own real estate property, or have any measurable assets, which you probably do. An estate comprises everything you own, from home to automobiles, land, personal possessions, life insurance, cash in bank accounts, investments, and so much more.

Without an estate plan, you cannot control how your assets are distributed, nor can you fully control what should happen to you or your finances if you become incapacitated. Our Martha's Vineyard estate planning attorney can help you plan for incapacitation or death by utilizing various tools such as advance directives for health care, living wills, creating a will, trusts, a power of attorney, and more. We can also help you name a guardian for minor children.

In addition to estate planning, we handle all matters pertaining to elder law issues. The areas covered under elder law include Medicaid planningconservatorshipfiduciary services, estate planning, long-term care planning, long-term insurance, and more. As a certified elder law attorney in Martha's Vineyard, you can be assured that Attorney RJ Connelly III will provide you and your family with maximum protection.
