Why Stoffel Law, LLC?
A guardian is appointed when an individual cannot provide self-care, whether that be an adult or a child. Often, the individual who assumes the role of guardian is listed in the incapacitated person’s will. However, when the incapacitated person does not have a will or other written instrument designating a guardian, the court must appoint a guardian. If you are interested in seeking guardianship over an incapacitated person or minor, you will need to follow the proper legal steps to be appointed a guardian.
At Stoffel Law, LLC, nothing takes precedence over the interests and security of our clients. We are dedicated to approaching each and every case from a place of understanding and relentless pursuit to help you win your case.

Legal guardianship for adults
If a family member is no longer able to care for himself or herself, the courts may need to appoint a guardian to protect the incapacitated party’s interests. For example, a health care guardian may be appointed by the court to make medical decisions for an incapacitated person unable to independently make such decisions. Stoffel Law, LLC has extensive experience in guardianship proceedings, both contested and uncontested, and will prepare the proper documents and conduct the necessary due diligence to secure your appointment as guardian.
