Private Property/Land Use Issues
Our guest: Matt Munson


Matt Munson received his Bachelors of Science in Political Science from The University of Utah in Salt Lake City, UT. He was later awarded a Juris Doctorate from The S.J. Quinney College of Law at The University of Utah. While attending law school, Matt was appointed to represent the law school in the ASUU Senate, served as the President of the Federalist Society, and completed an internship with the Utah State Senate. In addition, he worked as a Law Clerk within the Tax & Revenue and Education & Health Divisions at the Utah Attorney General’s Office.

Matt’s law practice is devoted primarily to Estate Planning, Probate Administration, Corporate and Real Estate Law, and Bankruptcy. He is a member of the Utah Bar Association, American Bar Association, National Association of Estate Planners and Councils, and the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. Matt is admitted to practice law before the Supreme Court of the State of Utah and the United States District Court for the District of Utah.
Active in several local community organizations, Matt’s professional associations include the American Bar Association, Utah Bar Association, Southern Utah Bar, Washington County Board of Realtors, and Wills for Heroes. Matt is also a frequent speaker on educational topics involving various areas of the law, including Estate Planning, Asset Protection, Bankruptcy, and Corporate Law. He is also associated with Dave Ramsey and frequently coordinates Financial Peace University courses. In 2011, Matt founded a group known as People for the Ethical Treatment of Property Owners (“PETPO”), a property rights advocacy group that recently filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (“USFWS”), as a result of the unjust and unconstitutional federal regulations that have been imposed on the residents of Southern Utah for over forty years. Matt is also a proud supporter of our nation’s veterans, being actively engaged in several causes including the Wounded Warriors Foundation, and working on a local level to assist veterans and their families during times of deployment.

Matt and his wife Keri reside in Cedar City and are the parents of two young boys, ages 9 and 7. Both Wyoming natives, Matt and Keri love to spend their free time traveling, exercising, reading, coaching their children’s athletic teams, and sharing Southern Utah's world class recreational opportunities with their children.

Iron County, Utah has been overtaken by State/Federal agencies and the Prairie Dog (listed as endangered, when in fact, there are THOUSANDS). Has seriously damaged economy, development and just like Siskiyou County, if you kill a prairie dog, you go to jail and face thousands of dollars in fines.
