A Message from the WhitbeckBennett Family




My name is Jenniffer DeNigris and I began working with Whitbeck Bennett as an Attorney in April, 2022. I primarily work out of the Leesburg office and have enjoyed getting to know the amazing team in place over the last few months.

Parents & Education Town Hall - Part 2

Thursday, June 9
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

You are invited to join John Whitbeck, and other members of the WhitbeckBennett team for a virtual Town Hall-style forum to discuss current topics facing parents of school-aged children. The second installment will focus specifically on Special Education and Individualized Education Plans.


What is Title IX?

The Education Amendments of 1972 include Title IX, which strictly prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex for any academic institution that receives Federal funding.

Almost every academic or educational program receives federal funding. While Title IX can seem simple, Guidance from the U.S. Department of Education, and Supreme Court decisions, have broadened the Title IX scope since 1972 to include sexual harassment and sexual violence.

Under Title IX, all schools are legally required to respond to and remedy hostile educational environments.  Failure to do so could result in a school or school system losing its federal funding.
