Have you considered taking a pro bono custody case, but felt unprepared or anxious about the stakes or time commitment? Then this training is for you: you can do it! Watch our recording from July 26, 2022 as VIP’s Supervising Attorney and Family Law expert Denise Lynch, as well as our volunteer custody experts Lise Fisher, Lee Schwartz, and Sarah Katz, answer all of your questions.
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. Viewers will also hear from Diane Zilka, a veteran VIP probate volunteer who had no experience probating estates before learning the process from VIP.
VIP volunteers help families obtain guardianship over their loved ones, enabling them to provide lifelong care and support. This training, led by Kathy Ochroch of Blank Rome LLP and Timothy Holman of Smith Kane Holman, LLC, will address the processes and procedures for initiating and completing an adult guardianship petition in Philadelphia County.
Join the VIP estate planning team and partners for a one-hour training focused on the benefits and drawbacks of these two methods of property transfer for your low-income client.
