Estate Planning CLE: Protecting Homes and Empowering End-of-Life Dignity through Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Advance Healthcare Directives

Clients living in poverty have straightforward but vital estate planning needs.

Please join Philadelphia VIP Supervising Attorney Lindsay Schoonmaker and Rothkoff Law Group’s Roxane Crowley at a free CLE focused on how to address these needs.


Many low-income Philadelphians own their home and would like to make sure it goes to the family or loved ones who have cared for them and who are often already living in the property. VIP clients also need financial powers of attorney and advance directives to ensure their affairs are properly handled by a trusted relative or friend, should they become unable to act on their own behalf and so that provisions are place to care for them should they fall ill.

This discrete pro bono opportunity has a marked impact on clients’ lives and the lives of their families and loved ones. It also has an impact on the larger community in avoiding the significant tangled title problems that arise when there is no estate plan in place.

The training will run from 8:45-10:00 am; registration opens at 8:30 am. The event will be held at Philadelphia VIP, 1500 Walnut Street, Suite 400, Philadelphia, PA 19102. Attendees will earn one substantive CLE credit free of charge if they accept a VIP case within six months following the training.
