Paul is a native North Dakotan who came to Billings, Montana in 1999 to begin his legal career in private practice. Paul attended the University of Minnesota, graduating with honors in 1994 with a degree in finance. He earned his law degree in 1998 from the University of North Dakota School of Law, where he was inducted into the Order of the Coif, recognizing his achievement for graduating in the top 10 percent of his law school class. During law school, Paul was also published by and a member of the prestigious law review. Upon graduation, he served for one year as a law clerk for Justice Mary Muehlen Maring of the North Dakota Supreme Court.

In 1999, Paul began working for the Crowley Fleck firm in Billings, where he handled complex civil litigation, primarily in the areas of personal injury and workers’ compensation. In 2001, he joined the law firm of Cozzens, Warren & Harris, in Billings, where the focus of his practice changed to representing plaintiffs in cases involving personal injury, product liability, workers’ compensation and safe workplace litigation. In 2005, that firm became Cozzens, Harman, Warren, Harris & Odegaard, PLLP.

In 2008, Paul started his own practice and continued to focus exclusively on representing injury victims with an emphasis in work-related auto and oil field accidents. Having spent a good portion of his youth near the Bakken oil fields of the Williston Basin, Paul has become particularly devoted to representing the workplace injury victims of that region.

In 2014, Paul formally merged his law practice with his friend and colleague, Matt Braukmann, forming Odegaard Braukmann Law, PLLC. Together, Matt and Paul continue to represent injured Montanans with the same philosophy they both share: to do what is right by the client.

Paul comes from four generations of farmers from the north central prairie of North Dakota. He is deeply influenced by his farming and working class heritage. This influence forged his devotion to representing and helping individuals that have been harmed by corporations, insurance companies and other moneyed interests. Paul is passionately devoted to representing the working class.

Paul is married to Suzanne Odegaard, who is a radiological technician at Big Horn Memorial Hospital in Hardin, MT. He is blessed to have 3 step-sons, Riley, Alex and Michael, ages 16 and 13, and a beautiful daughter, Kate, who is 3 years old. Paul spends most of his free time attending little league baseball and football games, and chasing his daughter around at those events. When time permits, Paul likes to take his beloved setter, Cooper, to the Montana prairies in search of upland game. Occasionally, (and he’ll tell you it’s not often enough) Paul has been known to chase the elusive bull elk and wily whitetail buck.
