Welcome to Connelly Law!

Welcome. My name is RJ Connelly III, founding and managing attorney, of Connelly Law Offices, Ltd. and I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and give you some insight into what my firm offers. I practice Elder Law, which covers several legal and practical issues affecting older adults, their caretakers, friends, and family members.  Some common issues for this age group include:

  • Estate Planning

  • Decedent Estates

  • Medicaid Planning and Crisis Planning

  • Special Needs Planning

  • End-of-life decisions and care

  • Older adult abuse

  • Financial planning

  • Care planning

  • Guardianship and Conservatorships

Attorney RJ Connelly III

I am a certified elder law attorney, one of just 500 in the United States, and licensed to practice in the states of Rhode Island, Connecticut, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  We have based the firm on four core principles that define who we are as an elder law provider - Being Accessible, Being Affordable, Always Being Open and Honest with you, and having Client Respect.  Let me explain:

  1. Accessibility - Working with Connelly Law is more than a client-attorney transaction. For us, it's a partnership. We believe in being accessible and within reach of our clients whenever needed.  I make it my personal duty to ensure that calls and correspondence are addressed promptly and that each and every client knows they are very important to us.

  2. Affordability - We understand that hiring an attorney can be costly. We believe in helping those in our community and not taking advantage in their time of need. The truth is, there are inevitable costs involved when hiring an attorney, but it is often far less expensive than not doing so. Acting alone without proper legal counsel will almost always lead to costly problems and bad results.

  3. Honesty - Here at Connelly Law, we believe honesty is the single highest priority in our partnership with clients. As an attorney, it is my sworn duty to act in the best interest of my clients within the bounds of the law.

  4. Respect - Simply put, clients deserve more. Connelly Law believes in partnerships and dedication to those who choose to work with us. Clients have the right to access the entirety of our knowledgeable staff. They have the right to be treated with the highest level of honesty, confidentiality, respect, and compassion. Clients also have the right to know the specifics of pricing and services before signing-on, with detailed explanations of each.

With that being said, I urge you to take some time and explore our website and the services we offer, using this page to launch into your exploration.  Please meet our staff and take time to look at our blogs, which include information not only on elder law, but on issues like senior health concerns, Alzheimer's disease, medication, government health benefits, and more.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our offices by calling 401-724-9400 or stopping by our office at any time.

Very truly yours,

RJ Connelly III
