About Matthew Kuehnl

Matthew Kuehnl has a passion for helping people. As a family law attorney, he provides both legal and emotional support to clients when they’re going through some of life’s most difficult situations.

"This process can be stressful and emotional. I do everything I can to alleviate their fears and concerns."

Matt’s clients appreciate his open and honest approach, which he credits as the foundation of his relationship with every client. His clients also appreciate that he works tirelessly to get them their desired results, whether he is facilitating a negotiation or fighting for them in court.

One of Matt’s fundamental motivators is helping children in any way he can; as a family law lawyer, he does just that. He has broad experience in parenting plan issues and often advises his clients on how best to navigate their family law situation without exposing their children to harmful conflict or stress.

"Being a child of divorce and witnessing firsthand the negative impact it can have on families and children, I approach each case with perspective and empathy."

Matt assists clients in divorce and separation matters, custody and parenting plans, child support, third party custody, and domestic violence issues.

Before becoming an attorney, Matt performed with various choirs around the world. He has Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in vocal performance and has sung in Japan, Korea, Carnegie Hall, St. Paul's Cathedral in London, and in a Sunday Mass at The Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. He also sang the National Anthem at multiple Utah Jazz games and is an avid basketball fan. He and his wife have three young children and love family activities that tire the little ones out.
