About Lonn

Learn Lonn’s areas of practice.

Lonn has been a lawyer with Sorensen Litchfield (formerly Hawkins & Sorensen) since 2004. Prior to joining the firm, Lonn worked for Atkin & Hawkins, a complex civil litigation firm that later became Atkin & Shields. Lonn has a solid background in science and worked his way through college as an environmental chemist for a large mining company. He was chief deputy Auditor of Salt Lake County from 2011-2015.

Lonn earned his B.S. from the University of Utah in geography with a minor in mathematics. He earned his law degree, cum laude, from Brigham Young University in 1997. Lonn then earned a master of laws degree with merit from the London School of Economics and Political Science in international business law.

Lonn has been a member of the Utah State Bar since 1997. He is also licensed to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Lonn is a member of the International Law Section of the Utah State Bar and was its chair in 2005-06.

Lonn has had many opportunities to help clients with situations that are unusual and complex, including bankruptcy disputes, brain injuries, breach of contract, business relationship liability, business torts, class actions, construction disputes, contested adoptions, dead bodies, debt collection, divorce and custody, fraud, guardianship and conservatorship, international and interstate disputes, judicial conduct, motor vehicle collisions, patent infringement, probate disputes, professional and fiduciary liability, real property, securities fraud, and trademark infringement, wrongful death.

Lonn started his legal career researching real estate titles for two dozen title companies and lawyers. Lonn identifies title problems and solves them by drafting custom legal documents, filing a probate, a quiet title action, or using other court processes.

Lonn helps clients pass property from one generation to the next. Because of Lonn’s vast experience, his real estate title experience, and the relationships he has cultivated, Lonn can process uncontested probates and trusts quickly, effectively, and inexpensively. He also litigates disputes that develop in these areas.

Lonn loves children and enjoys using his legal skills to build families. He has done hundreds of adoption finalization hearings and hundreds more petitions regarding parental rights. Some of these adoptions are contested and require litigation, but so far none of Lonn’s clients have been stopped from finalizing.

The core of Lonn’s practice is his dedication to excellent legal writing and drafting. Lonn’s knows there are many ways to write a legal document—and there is a best way. Lonn’s constant quest is to find the best way to draft each document.

Lonn is married and has three children, one with dark hair, one with blonde hair, and one with red hair. They enjoy living in the Avenues of Salt Lake City and traveling the world together.

Glad Lonn represented us for adoption
Lonn Litchfield represented us for the adoption finalization of both of our children. His knowledge of both the law and the courts was stellar, and his communication with us throughout the process was excellent. In the case of our second child, an issue arose at the 11th hour. Lonn was on top of it immediately, and his quick response and legal expertise meant our adoption finalization went through on schedule. He both put us at ease and handled the issue. We are glad Lonn represented us.

Best adoption lawyer
Lonn Linchfield was our attorney for the adoption of our son. We communicated primarily by email and phone and he was prompt to reply and produce the documents he promised. Our adoption was finalized in August 2020 during the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and our hearing was over zoom. Everything worked out as expected and we highly recommend Lonn and will be working with him again for our next adoption. We couldn't have been happier with our experience. We found his services to be extremely professional and highly recommend him.

Adoption Finalization during COVID-19 pandemic!
Lonn Linchfield was our attorney for the adoption of our daughter. We live out of state and communicated primarily by email and phone prior to our hearing. He was prompt to reply and produce the documents he promised. Our adoption was finalized faster than we expected, especially as it was in May 2020 during the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, which was far from ideal timing as travel was not possible. He said that he'd never done an adoption hearing via video conference, but he worked with the judge to make it happen and it went off without a hitch. We couldn't have been happier with our experience. We found his services to be extremely professional and affordable.

A business success
Lonn has been our general consel for over 7 years. He has shown ability to work on an international scale. Here in the US he has helped us navigate Nuclear regulatory issues. He hasa played a role in defining our business abilities such as the SBA and Fedbiz.ops programs. Everything we do is processed by Lonn. When we need him he is very prompt.The most important service he does for us is to help balance business with personal. On family law, well he is considered by most of us as the best. We have family who will use no one else. I recommend speaking with Lonn and see where he can help.

Executive Director
We have worked with Lonn Litchfield for over 10 years. During that time he has become a indispensable asset to our organization. We have worked with dozens of attorneys over the years and from those experiences we recognize Lonn's unique strengths.. His strengths include his capacity to clearly understand the situation, pull the important points, and synthesize those points into a cohesive argument in support of his client. He has thorough knowledge of our area of the law along with the ability to research and understand other areas as they become applicable. Lonn is able to articulate in writing the necessary aspects of any case in a convincing and understandable way. Surrounding these strengths is the fact that Lonn is approachable and kind.
