Lawyer returns to Austin

Here's some from a piece this morning by colleague in Austin, Karen Colbenson:

Business savvy Paul Egtvedt has worked with some of Minnesota’s top attorneys from Fortune 500 companies and has his own office in the IDS Tower in Minneapolis, but when his entrepreneurial spirit and heart called him back to his hometown, he listened.

Born and raised in Austin, Egtvedt worked for various large law firms in Minneapolis before opening his own law firm there in 2003. He recently decided to leave the big city behind and return to his original home to open a firm on Main Street.

His office is located on the top floor of the 111 building.

The graduate of Cornell University said he chose to return to Austin so he could be closer to his family and to marry and settle down with his fiancee, Heather Wittstruck, who teaches at Southgate Elementary School. 


He also believes his experience working on complex issues for large businesses will be beneficial in a smaller community like Austin.

Egtvedt practices in several areas of law, including employment, labor law, business and corporate law, personal injury, criminal defense and land use. He said he most enjoys working on employment issues because he’s intrigued by human behavior.
