We Help Special Needs Families
Get Florida Guardianship
Easily & Affordably
Guardian Project is a group coaching program, combined with low-cost, traditional legal services, that helps parents of children with disabilities get guardianship without anxiety, overwhelm or paying the high cost of retaining a lawyer.
Meet Stephen Furnari
Special Needs Dad, Special Education Advocate & Florida Attorney
Hi, I'm Steve, and like you, I'm a special needs parent. My 9 year old daughter Katie has a rare genetic syndrome called Cri du Chat.
While volunteering for my local legal aid society, I noticed there was a big gap between the families who qualify for free legal services and those who can easily afford an attorney.
I've met many of these "gap" families who tried to file for guardianship without the help of a lawyer. Some were successful, but many got overwhelmed by the process and experienced anxiety about doing it wrong.
The Guardian Project is my attempt to solve this problem. You get an easy, step-by step process to file for guardianship with the support of a community, and the guidance of an attorney, for under $500.
Some of you will still file for guardianship on your own - and that's great! We have lots of free resources to make it easier for you.
What you can't do is hire my firm! We don't accept one-to-one guardianship clients. If this is what you are looking for, we can refer you to someone we love!
