The Pennington Law Difference

Many attorneys have experience, but what sets Whitney Pennington apart from them?

Honest and Ethical Practicing

Whitney always conducts herself in an honest and ethical manner, whether it be in the Court room, in general practicing, when billing clients, and respecting client needs and confidentiality. She keeps the client’s best interests her priority throughout the case and does not make decisions solely based on potential profit.

Settlement Skills

Whitney understands that settlement can be a win in certain circumstances, and is generally less stressful and less expensive for clients. She will pursue settlement as long as necessary and appropriate if the circumstances of the case warrant it, and she will advise her clients if litigation would be a wise next step.

Litigation Skills

Whitney Pennington is a strong litigator. She has trial preparation down to a science; in her ten years of experience she has learned litigation strong strategies, how to best present the facts of a case in front of a Judge, what needs to be prepared and when, and how to prepare clients and witnesses to testify.

Personalized Approach

Whitney does not approach her cases with a one size fits all approach. She sees each of her clients as individuals and works each individual case according to that specific client’s needs. She strives to be approachable when clients have questions, realistic and honest when they want to understand potential outcomes. Due to this unconventional approach, her clients often feel like they are her only client. This approach also helps clients get through the stress that comes with divorce, custody or support matters.
