Who We Are
Paul Brosnahan grew up in the Mississippi River Valley in Southeastern Minnesota. He attended Catholic grade school and the Winona Public High School before heading east to the Ivy League’s Dartmouth College. While at Dartmouth Paul was an English major and ran the Dartmouth Big Brothers/Big Sisters Program. He spent his senior year in the Honors English Program at London’s University College and graduated from Dartmouth in 1982. Paul earned his law degree from the University of Notre Dame Law School in 1985. While at Notre Dame he interned with the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA). Paul was chosen as one of two law clerks to assist Robert Kutak as he re-wrote the American Bar Association’s Code of Professional Responsibility.

Following graduation, Paul joined Minnesota’s premier trial law firm, Robins, Kaplan, Miller and Ciresi in Minneapolis. While at Robins he had the chance to handle cases all over the country involving catastrophic property losses from fires and collapses, environmental pollution and bankruptcy claims.

After returning to his hometown of Winona, Paul established The Brosnahan Law Firm, P.A. in 1992, dedicating the business exclusively to representing injured people and their families.
