Whitney Pennington

I grew up in Southwest Virginia. I decided to become an attorney to help serve this area and its people. My passion has always been family law. I enjoy helping clients through difficult times and guiding them through their trials with individualized attention. It was because of this passion I attended Campbell’s Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law in Raleigh, North Carolina where I majored in trial advocacy.
During my time in law school, I focused on family law and estate planning. In 2012, I graduated at the top of my class with honors and passed the North Carolina Bar. In early 2013, I passed the Virginia Bar. At this time, my active license is in Virginia only. Since that time, I have been in private practice as well as worked in other legal capacities.

In the first few years of my practice, I worked in a general practice firm where I grew as an attorney who litigated matters from real property, family law, to personal injury. After that time, I worked as a magistrate in Northern Virginia where I issued warrants for arrest, search warrants, emergency protective orders and emergency custody orders for mental health.

Family Law Attorney Abingdon, VA

The majority of family lawyers represent clients in divorce proceedings and other family law problems. However, family law is a wide practice area that involves topics such as foster care and reproductive rights.

Due to the personal nature of family law problems, having a trustworthy legal professional at your corner can assist you in ensuring that your loved ones are appropriately represented and safeguarded during any legal process.

Estate Planning Attorney Abingdon, VA

If you become incapacitated and are unable to make your own decisions, having a strong estate plan in place helps safeguard your interests and allow your loved ones to act on your behalf. Not only does an estate plan enable you to specify how assets should be distributed, but it can also help avoid family disputes.

Without knowledgable estate planning lawyer, resolving your estate during the probate procedure can take considerable time and work. Additionally, probate costs and charges can be a hardship on estates of any size.
