The Minnesota Supreme Court conditionally reinstated two suspended attorneys in orders filed this week.
Randall D.B. Tigue and Paul Arthur Egtvedt both have been reinstated and placed on disciplinary probation subject to fulfilling some terms. The conditions include passing the professional responsibility portion of the bar exam, cooperating with the director of the Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility in monitoring probation compliance, responding to queries by the director, Martin Cole, and following the Minnesota Rules of Professional Conduct, among other conditions.
Tigue will be required to maintain law office and trust account books and records, hire a certified public accountant to supervise the maintenance of those records and provide Cole with monthly certificates signed by the CPA asserting that the books and records are being maintained and the trust account has not been overdrawn.
Egtvedt will work with a licensed attorney who will monitor his compliance with probation terms. He will be required to submit to the attorney supervisor a monthly inventory of all active client files. He also is required to create and maintain office protocols to ensure prompt responses to correspondence, calls and other communications. He also is required to undergo treatment by a licensed psychologist or other mental health professional and follow any recommended therapy programs.
