Rhode Island, Southeastern Massachusetts and Eastern Connecticut Elder Law Attorney

The State of Connecticut is bordered by Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York State as well as the Long Island Sound to the south.  The State Capital, Hartford, is the third largest city in a state that contains 169 incorporated towns. 

Connecticut is well known because of many movies, books and television programs which feature the state’s colonial past and picturesque coastline.  Although it is a small state, geographically it features a range of landscapes from mountains to marshes, beaches and even large areas of fossilized dinosaurs.

Along the coast and inland, industrial cities such as Stamford, Bridgeport, New Have and New London bustle with activity while the rolling hills and inland villages feature the classic New England symbols of old white churches, meeting houses, horse farms and taverns dating back to the revolutionary war.

Small seacoast villages and towns also feature a variety of maritime activities with the most famous being the town of Mystic, the location of Mystic Seaport, a living history museum designed to depict a 17th century seaport and the Mystic Aquarium, boasting the only beluga whale exhibit in New England.  Mystic is also the location of Connelly Law’s Connecticut office.

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, and this is especially the case if you're married, a parent, or if you own real estate property, or if you have any measurable assets, which you probably do. An estate comprises everything that you own from your home, to your automobiles, to land, personal possessions, life insurance, and cash in bank accounts, investments and so much more.

Without an estate plan, you have no way of controlling how your assets are distributed, nor can you fully control what should happen to you or your finances if you become incapacitated. Our estate planning attorney can help you plan for incapacitation or death by utilizing various tools such as advance directives for health careliving wills, creating a willtrusts, a power of attorney and more and 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.
