Background and Experience

Attorney Kenneth W. Burton was admitted to practice law in the State of Utah in 2002.

Ken is the founder and managing attorney of Burton Family Attorneys and finds the challenge of practicing law and overseeing a growing law firm to be extremely rewarding. Although Ken has a broad assortment of experience ranging from civil litigation to criminal law, for nearly a decade his practice has been tailored almost exclusively to the area of family law. He finds practicing in family law allows him to have a positive and direct impact for good in the lives of his clients and their families.

He has been named one of Utah’s Legal Elite by Utah Business Magazine on multiple occasions, and as Utah’s Outstanding Family Law Lawyer of the Year in 2020 by the Family Law Section of the Utah State Bar. He is actively involved in local and state bar associations and served as president of the Weber County Bar.
