Southern New England's Certified Elder Law Attorney

Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts Certified 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 state's third-largest city with 169 incorporated towns. 

Connecticut is well known because of many movies, books and television programs that 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 Haven 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. 

Connelly Law Offices, Ltd. is a family-owned business established over 40 years ago in 1970. Since then, our firm has been offering legal representation to the residents of Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts in elder law, estate planning, and probate. We also assist clients with fiduciary services and all aspects of estate administration and estate litigation.


Our Connecticut elder lawyer, R. J. Connelly III, followed in his father's footsteps by pursuing law and has more than 17 years of experience practicing law; he is admitted to practice law before the state and federal courts of Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.​  Attorney Connelly is a certified elder law attorney, making him one out of less than five hundred in the United States.​

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, or if you own real estate property, or if you have any measurable assets, which you probably do. An estate comprises everything you own, from your home to your 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 Connecticut 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 about Connecticut 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 Connecticut elder law attorney, you can be assured that Attorney RJ Connelly III will provide you and your family with maximum protection.

Whether young or old, it's never too soon to begin creating an estate plan. Estate plans are essential to your overall financial plan, regardless if your estate is large or small. This is especially true if you're married, have children or grandchildren, or own real estate. We can help you with wills, trusts, advance directives for health care, powers of attorney, and all other estate planning documents.

Attorney R.J. Connelly works closely with several state organizations that focus on protecting the rights of the elderly. If you or your loved one need fiduciary services or assistance with Medicaid planning or conservatorship, we have the knowledge and the tools to help you execute a plan that will protect your future and your estate.
