January 2023 LPEP Spotlight: Michael Lonich

Michael Lonich is a managing partner at Lonich Patton Ehrlich Policastri.

What was your first job?
My first job was in a Cannery here in Silicon Valley. In high school and college, fruit & vegetable canneries were prevalent. It was the end of an era in what was called “The Valley of Hearts Delight.” Fruits & vegetables grown here in the valley were canned locally in Santa Clara all summer, and then shipped out just before it was time to go back to school.

Where do you see yourself in a few years from now?
Retirement! Well, maybe not too soon, but I’ve been very lucky to work with great people, “My second family.”

What is your main hobby outside of work?
I enjoy golf and fishing, although I never seem to have enough time to do either.
