Probate Court Assistance Project

CVLS' new pro bono initiative pairs experienced decedent's estate attorneys with pro se parties in Cook County's Probate Court.

Probate Court Assistance Project

Volunteers provide pro bono representation to low-income individuals referred to CVLS by Probate judges. Many of these pro se petitioners have filed a decedent's estate but can't proceed on their own. Other clients get to CVLS when a relative dies owning a home and family members need help handling the real estate. Our volunteer attorneys litigate estate cases or find extra-judicial solutions in order to marshal family assets, saving time and headaches for everyone, including the clients and the court.
