Kyle Witherspoon


Kyle Witherspoon co-founded Sorensen Witherspoon, LLC in his thirteenth year of legal practice, having built in that time a career resume and experience base singularly unique in Utah’s Family Law professional community. The first BYU Law graduate ever hired by the nation’s leading complex litigation boutique directly out of law school, Kyle spent the first eight years of his career at some of country’s most well-respected national and international law firms, where he represented institutional clients, non-profits, and multinational company executives in high-consequence business litigation and appeals; as well as having the honor spend a year away from private practice to serve an appointment as a judicial law clerk for one of the Utah Supreme Court’s most respected and prolific justices. 

Despite this success, however, Kyle ultimately found commercial litigation unsatisfying both personally and professionally, and began developing a passion for family law and domestic litigation–for helping real people solve real problems in some of the most difficult moments of their lives using the skills he acquired over eight years at the hands of some of the profession’s best. He decided to devote his career solely to family law practice as of January 1, 2017, and dove in headlong without looking back. 

This was, admittedly, a highly unconventional career decision for a lawyer of Kyle’s professional pedigree and background. It would quickly prove to be the right one. Quickly building a steady stream of clients based almost entirely on word-of-mouth, as well as a positive reputation among his colleagues, Kyle  would find himself nominated by his peers to both Utah Business Magazine’s annual “Legal Elite” list, and Super Lawyers Magazine’s “Rising Stars” list, within his first year of family law practice–honors he has retained in the years since. Ultimately, in just five years, Kyle would go on to become a partner in the family law division at one of Utah’s fastest growing law firms; then leave to start, sustain, and grow his own personal law firm (Witherspoon Law, LLC) over the course of three very successful years, including the global pandemic. But the opportunity to partner with Sam Sorensen and build one of Utah’s best family and domestic litigation law firms isn’t one you turn down. Kyle believes family law clients deserve a better class of lawyer–and he’s committed to ensuring that Sorensen Witherspoon gives it to them.

Kyle Witherspoon is a genius!!

Kyle Witherspoon is a genius!! He's quick, accurate and handles high stress situations well. Divorce and custody matters are highly emotional. I had to file emergency orders regarding my children and Kyle handled the matter immediately, professionally and was able to clearly explain my options, as well as any pros or cons that could arise with each option. Most importantly, through Kyle's knowledge and expertise, he was able to calm the least for me. I would not want to be on the other side of Kyle but that's now my ex-husband's problem. If you find yourself in a divorce situation and/or custody dispute, you NEED Mr. Witherspoon on your side.
