Bridging the Civil Justice Gap
In 1981, a group of service-minded lawyers founded Philadelphia VIP in response to a community crisis. When federal funding for legal aid dried up, Philadelphia attorneys mobilized to meet the ever-growing demand for free legal services through volunteerism.
Much has changed in our city and the world since 1981, but one thing remains constant: VIP continues its critical work of empowering Philadelphians living in poverty, small businesses and nonprofits seeking legal services, and volunteer attorneys seeking to help their community.
