Southern New England's Certified Elder Law Attorney

Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts Certified Elder Law Attorney


Excellent, compassionate, and informative...

Attorney RJ Connelly was an excellent, compassionate, and Informative lawyer! My siblings and I were devastated when our parents passed thirteen weeks apart. From the first meeting RJ and his team reassured us that they would stick by our side through the entire estate process and remained loyal on that promise. My siblings and I would recommend Connelly Law and RJ without hesitation for any estate legal needs!

We felt that he valued us as clients...


My business partners and I used Attorney Connelly to complete several business documents. We had many questions before the process started and while he was preparing the documents. Attorney Connelly was not only accessible when we had a question but he took the time to make the process easy to understand. We were not only comfortable with his knowledge of the process but we felt that he valued us as clients. Our business is up and running without a hitch and Attorney Connelly allowed us to concentrate on our business while he prepared and filed all of our paperwork. He was recommended to us by a family friend and we have since recommended him to members of our family. It's a good feeling knowing we now have someone we can not only trust but we can count on as our business and family Attorney.

It was like we were sitting with a friend...

RJ and staff, thank you for your kind, efficient and excellent service you provided for our family.  The attention to detail and wonderfully organized binder that you gave us has helped to put our affairs in order.  You made the whole process very easy for a subject that was not easy for my mom to discuss.  It was like we were sitting with a friend and talking calmly about what to do.  You never rushed and always made sure to answer all of our questions.  Thank you again.

RJ is an extremely professional attorney...

RJ always made me feel comfortable with his reassuring personality.  He would always listen to what I had to say and then give me the best solution for the situation.  RJ is an extremely professional attorney.  He was upfront and honest with me and never made promises he could not keep.   He and his entire office staff were always on top of things and responded promptly to all inquires either via phone or email.   I am confident that RJ always worked in my best interest.

My unconditional support. My sincere gratitude to the entire staff of R.J Connelly Law Office.

To whom it may concern: It is my pleasure to offer this testimony on behalf of Attorney R.J. Connelly and his competent and efficient staff. I have known Attorney Connelly for approximately two years. During which time he has functioned as a fiduciary on behalf of my elderly and dependent 91 years old mother who resides with me as her primary caretaker for her daily living requirements. For me, it is both comforting and reassuring to have my mother's present and future welfare entrusted to his oversight. He is above all trustworthy and compassionate and his integrity is the hallmark of his character. I am so grateful to have him as a valued team player and as an advocate for my mother's safety and well being. I support the role he plays and for the person he is. He has my unconditional support. My sincere gratitude to the entire staff of R.J Connelly Law Office.

Specialized professional training and exceptional personal qualities


Peace of mind is a precious thing, and we found it with R.J. Connelly's combination of specialized professional training and exceptional personal qualities. We had already had an unsatisfactory experience of estate planning with another lawyer, who came well recommended. One should probably expect any lawyer to be bright, articulate, and knowledgeable but we also found RJ to be personable, patient, and thorough in listening to what we wanted, and then clear and imaginative in suggesting how to achieve it. He carefully discussed alternatives, and always clarifies points that we found unclear. There was no rush in compiling a comprehensive plan that appears to lessen taxes to the estate and to ease transitions for the survivors. His entire staff was also courteous, helpful, and efficient. It is always good to say good things about a good person, who is also enjoyable company!

RJ & his staff are outstanding!


RJ & his staff are outstanding! My mother has Alzheimer's and had to be placed in a nursing home because we were no longer able to care for her, at the same time my father was diagnosed w/cancer, heart & kidney failure. At this emotional and stressful time, we found ourselves trying to find our way through the process of Medicare applications, wills, medical and financial power of attorneys- all of which are overwhelming and extremely difficult to understand. We tried to research the process of all of those things but found ourselves more confused with all the different laws, regulations and certainly a lot of misinformation it seemed impossible. We called RJ and set up a consultation to go over our situation, that was the best decision we could have made. RJ listened to what our needs were and immediately we found ourselves at ease. RJ showed us not only empathy for what we were going through but took the time to answer all our questions. RJ did exactly as promised, he took care of everything for both my mother and father from beginning to end in a way that we could clearly understand. If anyone finds themselves seeking answers and trying to understand the process of what is the right way/legal way to do anything from Medicare to wills, I would give them RJ's number. RJ and his staff renewed my faith that not everyone out there is trying to take advantage of people when they are going through tough times. It is REALLY refreshing to find such caring, understanding, professional and most of all educated people like RH and his staff. I would tell anyone I know that RJ Connelly is the best at what they do. My family appreciates everything he did for us, we could not have done it without him! To RJ and his staff many thanks!!!

I Have Peace of Mind - Thanks, RJ


I live quite a distance from Connecticut, with three children, so dropping in on my mother was not an easy endeavor.  When I received a call from her bank telling me that her account had been compromised and there were several withdrawals that appeared to be fraudulent, I was beside myself.  Although she valued her ability to live in her home, by herself, was it now time for me to arrange for assisted living or maybe nursing care?  She would be devastated.  I looked at Attorney Connelly's website and loved what I saw - it was informative, understandable and clear.  I called him the following day and he discussed what he could do to help.  Now, nearly a year later, his staff are handling her accounts and paying her bills, they monitor the spending and best of all, keeping her in her home instead of sending her to nursing care is saving us tens of thousands of dollars a year.  On top of this, I have peace of mind.  Thanks, to RJ and his Staff!
