Rhode Island, Southeastern Massachusetts and Eastern Connecticut Elder Law Attorney

Located just seven miles off the coast of Massachusetts, Martha’s Vineyard has been described as a world of its own.  Six towns are located here including Oak Bluffs, Vineyard Haven, Edgartown, Aquinnah, Chilmark and West Tisbury, each with its own character and charm.  Although known for its beautiful beaches, it is also renown for its spectacular architecture, arts community and restaurants.  The island also boasts a rich history of whaling and a native Wampanoag Indian culture which can be seen throughout the area.  Food choices range from fine dining to family style establishments and small ice cream shops are located throughout the island. 


Nantucket is another beautiful island located off the Massachusetts coast.   As a National Historic District, the island’s downtown architecture has changed little since the 17th century and never fails to captivate visitors with its cobblestone streets, stately facades and quaint wharf cottages intertwined with fragrant roses and dense clusters of colorful hydrangeas. Inside many of those buildings, visitors will find gourmet restaurants, the finest traditional and contemporary art, quirky collectibles and many unique items that make Nantucket shopping such an adventure.


With the average age of Martha's Vineyard residents approaching fifty and those on the island of Nantucket approaching forty, estate planning is something that needs to be considered.  Let Connelly Law assist you with this.

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, 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 care, living wills, creating a will, trusts, 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. Such areas covered under elder law include: Medicaid planning, conservatorship, fiduciary services, estate planning, long-term care planning, long-term insurance and more. You can be rest assured that attorney Connelly will provide you and your family with maximum protection.

We can help you with wills, trusts, advance directives for health care, powers of attorney and all other estate planning documents.
