BKC is QB1 — he’s the guy you want running your offense on game day.
Bryan is the principal litigation attorney and owner of Crone Law PLLC. Bryan has served continuously in each position since Day 1 and he maintains the ultimate responsibility for all legal work performed by our office. Among other things, Bryan also actively manages all internal financial and business operations matters including the development and execution 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. Two MacBooks, three 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 the San Antonio to Austin metro area of Bexar, Comal, Guadalupe, Hays, Travis, and Williamson counties, and we continue to enjoy strong YOY growth in cases and revenue in each successive fiscal year that goes on our books.
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 in a small law firm where he gained priceless experience working directly under one of the most elite civil trial attorneys in Texas 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 a partner at Trotter | Crone PLLC, which focuses on helping businesses and other plaintiffs resolve high-value, long-term civil litigation cases. Bryan has also 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 (Wednesdays) which was later modified into a custom possession order to align possession schedules from two divorces over three households.
Bryan also has broad civil litigation experience from past work on cases and issues 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; non-profit organizations (including the process of obtaining federal 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status); issues affecting borrowers of 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. In the unfortunate situations where he is at a party with other lawyers, Bryan’s favorite low-key flex is casually mentioning that he’s undefeated in landlord-tenant cases governed by Ch. 92 of the Texas Property Code.
Bryan also provides legal services to businesses in industries ranging from software to real estate who operate both inside and outside of Texas. In this capacity, Bryan has formed various business entity structures and advised on corporate business activities, secured 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status with the IRS, and successfully negotiated and secured a multi-year global licensing and distribution deal with the premiere media distributor of 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.
