Client
Approximately 38 years ago, I asked a divorce client to bring in her estate planning documents, so I could see what post-divorce adjustments needed to be made. Even though I was a young lawyer, I knew quality work when I saw it. The will and related documents were beautifully crafted, and I immediately made note of the attorney who prepared them, Bob Kroney. A short time later, I engaged Bob to assist in my estate planning. That began an attorney client relationship that has continued for almost four decades. Bob has served as counsel in complex planning for me and my parents, setting up corporate entities and trusts, and representation in difficult and protracted litigation. It’s no surprise that many of Bob’s clients are other attorneys. I’ve referred clients and friends to Bob over the years and all of them have shared my experience; top flight legal work, combined with warm and caring personal attention and a common-sense and cost-effective approach to problems. Work is done in a timely and professional manner and calls and emails are returned immediately. I sleep better at night knowing that Bob Kroney is my attorney.

Complex Estate
Bob's knowledge and leadership was invaluable in resolving a complex and contentious estate. Bob and his team were able to bring the parties to a resolution when the other legal teams had no idea how to solve problems. Bob & his team are innovative, respected and able to find mutually agreeable solutions. All traits not easily found in many professionals. Thank you!

Estate Planning premarital
Bob was helpful from the first discussion to the completion of the first set of complex documents that included, among other things, the creation of a QTIP Trust in satisfaction of an agreement in a premarital agreement. He never tired of explaining the theory behind certain technical points, exploring alternative solutions to problems and helping develop creative solutions whenever there appeared to be barriers to successfully completing the drafting of the necessary documents. He was always open to feedback throughout the process. He knew when to "push" for completion of an assignment and when to "stand down" and wait for his client to carefully consider the alternatives under consideration. He was a consummate professional throughout the entire process. I look forward to working with Bob as we move to the next phase of the estate planning process.

When you need the best
My wife and I hired Bob Kroney and Lauren Brown to defend our rights in a complex case regarding the resolution of my mother's estate in Dallas. My wife and I are not Texas residents, so we used Avvo.com to find the best lawyers. The opposing counsil was one of the toughest, highest paid lawyers in Dallas at one of the largest law firms. It was a difficult case, and I have only superlatives to describe for the work that Bob and Lauren did. My emails and phone calls were answered promptly, even on weekends. They were highly professonal and effective in resolving the case to my satisfaction in the shortest amount of time. If you are looking for results in a case regarding estates or trusts, you need to contact Bob Kroney and Lauren Brown.

Mr. Kroney is an amazing attorney.
Mr. Kroney was a godsend to me. In a complex litigation, he alone of the attorneys involved had the skill, knowledge, experience and business relationships to properly defend me and close the case. The resolution would not have been possible without an attorney of Mr. Kroney's abilities. Mr. Kroney absolutely kept my best interests at the forefront and brought options for resolution that others were incapable of. My position improved because of Mr. Kroney, I was not simply made whole. He will always have my gratitude.
