Probate Training

Fight Philadelphia's tangled title epidemic

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 does that entail? And can you really learn the nuts and bolts of probating an estate by volunteering with VIP?


This training, led by Senior Staff Attorney Mike Jones, will introduce volunteers to the probate process and empower them to resolve low-income clients’ homeownership issues.

Attendees will also hear from Diane Zilka, a veteran VIP probate volunteer who had no experience probating estates before learning the process from VIP.

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