Attorney Bryan D. Stoffel personally understands that families come in all shapes, sizes and varieties – he and his two siblings were adopted, and he therefore knows full well the immense blessings that may result from legal matters involving the family. Bryan has dedicated his career to assisting similarly situated families to create, maintain, or rebuild a happy forever home.

Bryan was born and raised in Carmel, Indiana, and is a native Hoosier at his very core. Bryan attended Cathedral High School in Indianapolis, where he played Football for four years, and served as a Captain on a State-Champion Rugby side during his Senior year.

Bryan completed his undergraduate studies at Indiana University in Bloomington, and earned his degree in Marketing and Management from the prestigious Kelley School of Business. During his time at Indiana University, Bryan was heavily involved in the Greek and campus life communities, serving as President of his fraternity (Delta Tau Delta) and as the Greek representative on the IU Student Government.

Bryan graduated from the IU McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis in the top 20% of his class. During his time in law school, Bryan had the honor of clerking for Judge Daniel J. Pfleging of the Hamilton County Superior Court No. 2 and Judge Lance D. Hamner of the Johnson County Superior Court No. 3. As a law school student, Bryan also served as Vice President of Equal Justice Works, an organization focused on supporting attorneys with demonstrated dedication to increasing access to social justice for all persons.

After graduating from law school, Bryan worked as an Associate Attorney at Allen Wellman McNew Harvey, LLP in Greenfield, and Bleeke Dillon Crandall, P.C. in Indianapolis, where he gained valuable Family Law experience, and honed his skills as a litigator under seasoned trial attorneys. During his time at Bleeke Dillon Crandall, the senior partner taught Bryan the importance of responsiveness and civility, both of which Bryan strongly emphasizes in his own practice.

Bryan is very active in the Indianapolis Bar Association, and currently serves on the Pro Bono Committee. Bryan and his wife, Lauren, live in downtown Indianapolis, and enjoy “city living” on Mass Ave., in Fletcher Place and around Fountain Square. Bryan and Lauren are always trying new restaurants and patios around the city, attending concerts at White River, the Vogue, or elsewhere, and walking along the Canal on nice Summer days. In his spare time, Bryan enjoys golf, yoga, reading for pleasure, downtime with his family, cooking, craft beer, and cheering on his favorite sports teams (too many to list).

My situation had some challaging issues with some of the parties involved but Bryan didn't waiver. Bryan was able to work with the other party involved to agree to terms. Bryan was very detailed paperwork was always filed on time and correctly which made the process easier. Bryan was always proffestional and easy to work with and always went above and beyond to help my family.

The Total Package
We hired Bryan for estate planning needs once we welcomed a new addition to the family. From the initial contact, Bryan was excellent. He was always prompt in responding to us via email or phone, he provided several real life scenarios to consider when drafting our documents, and was wonderful at listening to our concerns to tailor an estate plan to meet our needs. Bryan made the experience very pleasurable, considering. Moreover, Bryan was able to help us evaluate our small businesses and how estate planning is an important part of the process. Bryan provided us a concierge experience and our family will certainly be using his services again in the future.

My family law situation had some unique quirks to it. Bryan went above and beyond to help out and make the process was as easy as possible. He also always made sure we understood what was going on.

If only you could give less than 1 star...
Worse than useless. This attorney has to consistently be reminded of points of the case, issues that have been discussed, concerns that (he claims to understand & agree with) yet when it's time to file anything with the Court the entire scenario turns into groundhog's day. Follow up is less than sub-par. Does not file motions with the Court when he specifically says he will within a certain timeframe, then when questioned on the status there are a lot of ???? (i.e. deer in head light moments.) Also, repeated excuses as to delays of case or follow up because of 'sickness', personal family issues, under the weather, attorney for other party is 'non-responsive', etc etc etc. There are no words to adequately detail how completely incompetent this individual is with regards to representing the interests of his clients.

Response from Bryan Stoffel July 7, 2017
Thank you for your review. I am so sorry to hear that you do not feel as if the services provided in your case met your expectations. I work tirelessly for all clients to provide a high level of customer service, while also achieving the best possible results in the shortest amount of time, given the circumstances and factual background of each case. In the case of your significant other, I feel confident in the results achieved, specifically, the Order secured from the Court to provide your significant other with Custody and Parenting Time and to reduce your significant other's Child Support, given that the outcomes from the prior out-of-state matter were unclear. I will take your review as constructive criticism moving forward, and as always, I will strive to provide the most attentive and effective legal representation to my clients. Thank you.
