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.

Estate Planning Services

Estate planning entails establishing a strategy for managing your assets in the event of your death or disability. A critical component of this process is having an open talk about not only the assets you hold and any debts you may have incurred, but also about your family members and your financial needs in the short, medium, and long term.

After doing a full analysis and evaluation of your specific circumstances, we will discuss your objectives and develop a strategy to achieve them.

Your Name*

Chilhowie, VA

Chilhowie is a town in Smyth County. At the time of the 2010 census, the population was 1,781. The name Chilhowie is believed to be derived from a Cherokee term that means “many deer valleys.” In the 1700s, Chilhowie was a popular starting location for Longhunter journeys. Samuel Stalnaker, an early settler, ran a tavern there until the late 1760s. During the 2011 Super Outbreak, it was also severely damaged by an EF-2 tornado. The National Register of Historic Places includes the A.C. Beatie House, H.L. Bonham House, Chilhowie Methodist Episcopal Church, and the Downtown Chilhowie Historic District.
