Speeches, Seminars, & Publications

Mr. Winn has appeared on KSL NewsRadio and KSL TV News in Salt Lake City discussing fathers’ rights issues.


Having spent most of his life in Utah, Mr. Winn understands the unique social, business, and legal community of the state of Utah.

More important than the title of an attorney, is the title of husband and father. Mr. Winn is the father of three boys. When he is not in the office or courtroom, he enjoys spending time at home with his family and serving in his church.



“Jonathan is by far the best attorney your firm has. I am very pleased with everything he is and has done for me. … As a firm you are very well known for a reason, and I have already told friends and family about you all.”


“I am 100% satisfied with the service I am receiving from Jonathan. He is great counsel and has really helped me with everything through what is a challenging and difficult time. He is absolutely fantastic. …”


“I have used Jonathan in the past for my divorce. This is a modification of that, and Jonathan has treated me the exact same way as he did before. He is very professional, knowledgeable, personable and all-around helpful. That’s why I came back to you guys. “


“Jonathan Winn was a fantastic attorney. … Jonathan’s consistent follow up and advice to me was invaluable. I felt everything was done exceptionally well.”


“When all of this started, a good friend of mine told me to trust in my attorney. I admit at first I was skeptical [for] having never dealt with divorce before, but I am very glad I did. Jonathan couldn’t have been any better. He really kept me at ease and helped me stay focused throughout the case. … I honestly could not be happier.”


“… This was my second time working with Jonathan Winn. The first was a divorce and the second was fighting a ridiculous contempt filing which was totally unnecessary, and it proved to be exactly that. Both times Jonathan always had me lined up, organized and on track with every phase. I left his care both times extremely satisfied and thankful. The last deposition … ended very favorably once again for me. Based on the legal wording in this final document, I won’t have a need for Jonathan again as my ex can never again challenge the decree. Overall grades for Jonathan are fives all away across the board. We’ve developed a personal relationship as well, which is always a very good sign as to how things went.


“I’ve used Jonathan in the past.  He’s very sharp and knows what he’s doing.  I would definitely use him again if needed.”


“I can not say enough good about Jonathan Winn … Jonathan has saved me thousands of dollars and advised me of situations that will have [an] impact on my life for many years to come.   If I had to go to battle with anyone I would certainly choose Jonathan Winn every day of the week. Seriously, there isn’t enough good that I could say about Jonathan. At the end of the day I would consider Jonathan to be more than my attorney; I would consider him to be my friend.”


“I have already referred the firm.  My brother and sister are actually using you guys now.  It sucks to have to go through this, but I’ve been able to have Jonathan take care of things again, and [I’m] glad he’s there for me.”


“He always made sure to answer all of my questions as soon as he was available, if not right away. I received updates very often. Jonathan made sure to walk me through every step and advised me to the right path towards my goals. … The office staff are very kind and helpful. I am very pleased with this firm and my attorney, Jonathan Winn. He tried everything in his power to help me with my goals during this journey. I am very thankful to him and this firm.”


“Honestly, I’ve gone through the family court system a couple times, and by far he has made it very simple and easy for me. [Jonathan] handled everything and saved me a lot of unnecessary confrontations. He knew his stuff and expedited the procedure. He charges more hourly, but he saved me in the long run because he spent way less time doing things and everything was done right.”


“He did a superb job. He’s very knowledgeable. His advice is right on and he knows what he is doing. Very efficient. He tells me the way it is so there’s no unreasonable expectations. He tells me what can and can’t be done. He was great.”


“Jonathan is great. We love that he has our best interest at heart. He’s a bull dog! He’s phenomenal! He’s in the perfect line of work!”
