Tiffany Anne O'Connell

also known as Tiffany A. O'Connell

About me

Tiffany is the principal of O'Connell Law LLC, a boutique estate planning and elder law firm with offices in Natick, Massachusetts.  She focuses her practice on Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Administration, Medicaid and Elder Law Planning, Business Succession Planning, and Charitable Planning.

Tiffany decided in 2010 to open her own practice in order to provide a very high level of customer service to her clients by taking the time to get to know and understand the client, walking them through what they can do to plan for their life and provide for their legacy, and then helping the client implement their goals.   

Prior to having her own law practice, Tiffany was an attorney with an estate planning law firm on the North Shore. She joined that firm in 2007 following an active-duty tour in the Army’s Judge Advocate General Corp at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where she served for 1 ½ years as Soldier's Counsel for disabled soldiers. Prior to her active-duty tour, Tiffany worked for many years in the insurance industry, both in-house as well as with an insurance defense law firm.

Tiffany received her J.D. from New England School of Law in 1994. She received her Bachelor's degree in English from Boston College in 1991. Tiffany earned her LLM in Taxation at Boston University Law School in 2011.  She received her Accredited Estate Planner (AEP®) designation in 2013.

She is admitted to practice law in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Tiffany is a member of the American Bar Association; New Hampshire Bar Association; Boston Bar Association; Boston Estate Planning Council; Fiduciary Inn; STEP; XPX Boston; National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys; and Wealth Counsel LLC.  Tiffany further serves on various non-profit committees and boards.

In her spare time, Tiffany enjoys cycling, running and spending time with family and friends. She is also licensed as a commercial pilot and flight instructor and hopes to one day have time to fly and buy a $100 hamburger.
