Resource Section
Why Hire Us?

In this section, you will find links to essential resources offered by Connelly Law and many community partners.  These resources are explicitly aimed at seniors and their families. They range from free workshops by Connelly Law to locating long-term care providers and everything in between.   


But before you explore the resource section of our website, we want to discuss why choosing professional fiduciary and certified elder law Attorney RJ Connelly III is the best choice for all your elder law and fiduciary needs.  We'll start by discussing why engaging the services of a certified elder law attorney is essential.

Becoming a Certified Elder Law Attorney (CELA) is not a task every lawyer can easily accomplish. A Certified Elder Law Attorney must be in good standing, have years of elder law practice, attend 15 hours of continuing legal education in elder law each year, submit to peer review, and pass a comprehensive written exam. There are less than 1000 CELAs in the United States, and only a relative handful exists in southern New England!

Our firm's lead attorney, award-winning elder law attorney, R.J. Connelly III, is not only a CELA, but a member of the National Elder Law Foundation, the Rhode Island Bar Association, the Connecticut Bar Association, the Massachusetts Bar Association, and the Federal Bar. Together, he and his team can help every client in any area of estate planning, elder law, or probate.

Attorney Connelly is also a professional fiduciary. Professional fiduciaries provide critical services to seniors and persons with disabilities.  Our professional fiduciary team manages financial matters for clients that affect daily care, housing, and medical needs. Also, it offers financial management services ranging from basic bill paying to estate and investment management
