As an associate at Graves Garrett, Matt Mueller represents businesses and individuals in a variety of complex litigation matters. He supports the firm’s commercial litigation, white collar criminal defense and free speech, campaign finance and election law practice groups.
“I was driven to become a lawyer by my abiding passion for helping others. I approach each task by remembering that although I may have a number of cases at any one time, the most important case to the client is his own.”
Prior to joining the firm, Matt was a law clerk at a regional plaintiff’s personal injury and criminal defense firm as well as a regional insurance defense firm, where he assisted in all stages of preparation of cases for trials, mediations and arbitrations.
Matt earned his law degree from the University of Missouri School of Law, where he participated in the Mizzou Law Veteran’s Clinic. In addition to advocating for veterans throughout the process of appealing denied claims, he helped to write and edit a petition for writ of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court. While in law school, Matt was on the Dean’s List each semester while simultaneously developing practical experience working extensive hours at a local law firm.
Matt graduated magna cum laude from Truman State University, where he was named the Outstanding Undergraduate in Justice Systems and was deeply involved in Greek life. Matt is a member of the Truman State University Kansas City Alumni Chapter and the Beta Theta Pi alumni association.
An Eagle Scout, Matt enjoys traveling and being outdoors whenever possible.
