We pride ourselves on helping volunteers choose a pro bono case that fits their interests. Please tell us about yourself by completing a Volunteer Enrollment Form. A member of our team will then contact you to discuss where to begin.

How does VIP work?

VIP trains and supports volunteer attorneys who represent low-income Philadelphians with legal issues including homeownership, domestic relations, lawsuit defense, and many more.

We vet our clients’ cases for merit and prepare them to work with an attorney before referring them to a volunteer. After you accept a case, you can count on VIP’s staff and mentors for hands-on guidance and training.

Please download our Volunteer Handbook to learn more.
