About Brian McConnell

Democratic Candidate for Judge in Williamson County Court at Law #1

Brian McConnell made his way to Texas from Chicago in 1983 after enlisting in the United States Air Force. He was stationed at Bergstrom Air Force Base until completion of his military service. 

After serving in the Air Force, Brian went on to attend The University of Texas at Austin.  Being the first in his family to attend college, Brian graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in the School of Communications.

After college, Brian worked in television production on live sporting events including the Olympic Games in Atlanta and the Goodwill Games in St. Petersburg, Russia. 

In 1993 Brian suffered serious injuries while on a bike ride when he was struck from behind by a pickup truck. It was this collision that introduced him to the legal system. The litigation that followed took nearly nine long years. During those nine years, Brian went to law school, passed the bar exam, and became a practicing attorney. Brian maintains a blown-up photo of the truck that nearly killed him as a reminder of how desperate, lonely and frightening it can be for a person seeking legal counsel.

He understands the practice of law always affects the lives of real people, something Brian humbly remembers first hand.
