Ms. Whitney Lundy Pennington: Attorney with The Hopkins Law Firm, PLLC


Whitney Pennington joined the Hopkins Law Firm in October 2016. She graduated from with honors from Campbell University . During her time at Campbell, she interned for the Honorable Justice Paul Newby of the North Carolina Supreme Court. In her third year of law school, Whitney worked with a family law firm located in Cary, North Carolina where she assisted with family law trials, meditations, and arbitration. After being admitted to the Virginia Bar, she practiced in a small firm in Southwest Virginia where she primarily focused on family law, wills, and small criminal matters. She frequently appeared before the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court and Circuit Court of Smyth County on matters such as custody, divorce, spousal support, and adoption. Whitney and her husband relocated to Linden, Virginia where she served as a magistrate for the 26th District. During her time as magistrate, Whitney gained valuable insight on protective orders and domestic assault and battery issues. She worked closely with law enforcement and community constituents in issuing arrest warrants, search warrants, and emergency protective orders. After her time as a magistrate, Whitney worked at Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia, as the Title IX Coordinator where she produced sexual misconduct policy and procedures for all university members. She was responsible for conducting investigations and hearings on matters involving sexual assault and sexual harassment. She worked with the Winchester Commonwealth Attorney’s office and the Winchester Police Department in coordinating services for those who were the victims of sexual assault. Whitney had the pleasure of helping Shenandoah University create best practices in both policy and procedure for sexual assault. Whitney lives in Linden, Virginia with her husband and young son.
