About the Firm

Helping Rhode Island Families Plan a Secure Future for Their Loved Ones

At Sullivan Estate Law, we are proud to carry on a tradition of quality service begun by attorney Jim Sullivan's late father, Leo J. Sullivan who started his practice in North Kingstown in 1955. Our law practice has thrived through the years for one reason: We provide quality legal service that truly meet our clients' needs. Our clients stay with us as their families grow and change, and they refer their friends and family to us when they need legal assistance:

  • Our Rhode Island estate planning lawyers create thoughtful, well-crafted, detailed estate plans.
  • Our elder law attorneys work with compassion and skill to ensure seniors, vulnerable adults, and veterans can access the financial assistance and medical services they need.
  • In real estate and business law, our knowledge of commercial matters, contracts and financing helps smooth the path for area residents and businesses alike.


Many of our clients have told us they appreciate that they can easily reach their attorney on the phone and that one experienced lawyer (not a new associate) is handling their case from beginning to end. We believe that level of personal attention sets us apart and ensures that working with our firm is a pleasant, productive experience.


We're sensitive to the physical challenges some of clients face. Our office is handicapped accessible, located on the first floor of our yellow Victorian office building with wide doors for easy wheelchair access and ability to use a ramp rather than stairs. Parking is readily available. If necessary we do make "house calls".

When you need skillful legal help, call our North Kingstown law office at (401) 294-9556 or contact us online.
