A: Your question is somewhat confusing, but I will try to sort it out. I am assuming that you are looking for a lawyer to oppose a conservatorship (or a conservatorship proceeding). If the person in question still has his/her faculties, and does not appear to need a conservatorship, then it would probably be denied in a Court hearing. Since I don't know what shape the person is in mentally, I can only guess what a judge would rule in a conservatorship hearing. I don't know who is opposing the conservatorship or why, so that is about all I can tell you. The "document" you refer to would probably end up being an Order from the Probate Court either granting the Conservatorship, or denying it. You might want to look up the nearest Superior Court in Los Angeles (or a satellite court in Santa Monica) and find helpful information on Conservatorships on the Court's Website.
