Texas attorney dead days after daughter’s suicide

Dallas: Media reports indicate Brian Loncar, a prominent attorney based in Dallas, Texas was found unresponsive in a car outside his office Sunday morning. Loncar was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later. He was found in the front seat of his Rolls Royce Wraith.

Loncar’s death occurred just two days following his teenage daughter’s memorial service. His daughter took her own life in late November. In her obituary, the father had written that his daughter had suffered from deep depression since she was 11 years old. More than 1,000 people had attended the funeral.

Loncar wrote in an emotional Facebook post following the service, “I wish you could have seen both the pain and love that the suicide of a 16-year-old girl causes.”

Attorney Pat Montes attended Texas Tech Law School with Loncar. Montes said his pain was apparent at the funeral.

“He was hurting and I think a lot of us just hurt with him,” Montes said.

“I remember the day Grace Loncar was born and Brian was beside himself with joy and excitement,” said attorney Krisi Kastl, whose first job following law school was with Loncar’s firm.

Police are still investigating Loncar’s cause of death. Medical personnel surmised heart attack was the likely cause, according to Loncar’s son. In 2008 Loncar’s car was struck by a fire-rescue truck, seriously injuring him.

Loncar maintained 11 law offices stretching across Texas and his TV commercials featured an illustrated ‘strong arm’ pounding against steel, promising potential clients he’d help them gain compensation if they’d been injured in an accident. The law firm’s website indicates they specialise in all types of vehicle accidents and various types of wrongful death cases.
