BKC is QB1 — he’s the guy you want running your offense on game day.
Bryan is the owner and principal litigation attorney of Crone Law PLLC. In between the legal work, Bryan nerds out on business operations, systems design, IRS publications, and the general development of near-term and long-term strategy.
On September 1, 2015, Bryan opened The Law Office of Bryan Crone PLLC with a MacBook, a smartphone, and no office, money, or clients. Three MacBooks, four smartphones, and tens of thousands of work hours later, we’ve transitioned into Crone Law PLLC and laid down roots in Southtown, San Antonio, a few blocks south of the Bexar County courthouse. We’ve represented clients in hundreds of family law and civil litigation cases throughout Bexar, Comal, Guadalupe, Hays, Travis, and Williamson counties and we expect to continue serving the San Antonio to Austin metro area for the next quarter-century or so.
Bryan graduated from St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, where he spent his second and third year representing St. Mary’s Law in mock trial competitions against law schools from all over the country. On more than a couple of occasions, he was named “Best Advocate” for his efforts. For several years during and after law school, Bryan was employed by an elite civil trial attorney and gained priceless experience in a very small-firm setting working on all aspects of complex plaintiff’s civil litigation cases. Bryan’s litigation practice necessarily involves taking cases to court but our practice ethos frequently allows us to resolve cases outside of court through agreement or mediation.
In addition to running Crone Law PLLC, Bryan is also a managing partner of Trotter | Crone PLLC, which focuses on helping businesses and other plaintiffs resolve high-value, long-term civil litigation cases. Taking the courtroom to the classroom, Bryan previously served as an adjunct professor at Our Lady of the Lake University, where he taught critical reading, writing, analytical, and other legal skills in beginning and advanced Mock Trial Courses to undergraduates pursuing law school.
Bryan has litigated nearly all of the Texas Family Code. Additionally, from age 1 to 18 he lived under the old-old standard possession order (MT mom W dad Th mom flip weekends) which was later modified into a custom possession order to align possession schedules from two divorces over three households.
Bryan has broad civil litigation experience covering a diverse range of legal subject matter including purchasing and sale agreements; pediatric dentistry; the corporate practice of medicine; civil conspiracy; federal regulations of private airplane manufacturing; feature-film production; federal and private student loans; free speech and liability considerations of art creation; real estate purchases; auto accidents and company vehicle personal injury litigation; purchasing, distribution, and commerce in the health care industry; platting and zoning of residential subdivisions and more. At the JP level, Bryan has argued hundreds of small claims and debt collection cases and he has successfully represented both landlords and tenants in eviction cases across four counties. When other lawyers try to ruin parties by talking shop, Bryan’s favorite low-key flex is casually mentioning he’s still undefeated in landlord-tenant cases governed by Ch. 92 of the Texas Property Code.
Bryan particularly enjoys advising businesses in industries ranging from software to real estate to home services to media content that operate both inside and outside the State of Texas. Bryan has formed various business entity structures and advised on corporate business activities, secured 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status with the IRS, reviewed and negotiated contracts of all types, and successfully secured a multi-year global licensing and distribution deal with the premiere media distributor of the content at the heart of a client’s first full-length feature film. Bryan maintains several long-term clients across the state who use our office exclusively for their business legal needs.
Bryan was born and raised in Austin, Texas and is very proud to be a third-generation graduate of The University of Texas at Austin, where he stormed the Tower after VY’s 4th and 5 and received his B.A. in Rhetoric & Writing the same year Colt McCoy completed nearly 80% of his passes and should have won the Heisman Trophy.
