Virtual Training: Practical Probate Skills

From intake to recording the deed

A recent report from the Pew Charitable Trusts found that 10,000 homes, or 2% of residential properties in Philadelphia, are burdened by tangled title.

You can make a direct impact on this problem by handling a VIP probate case. But what’s that actually like?


In this training, led by Staff Attorney Mike Jones, we aim to discuss what probating an estate for a VIP client actually entails, and how volunteers should approach certain nuances. A complement to our substantive training on probate, this training will provide insight into reviewing a case file, obtaining certain necessary documents, and filing the petition for probate.

We welcome a dialogue where veteran volunteers can share their experiences and newer volunteers can learn the basics of probate.

This training will take place via Zoom. Please RSVP below for the Zoom meeting information.
