JEFFERSON CITY (St. Louis Record) — Rolla attorney Bryce C. Crowley has been reinstated to practice law following an Oct. 3 Missouri Supreme Court order and his suspension two years ago after a driving while intoxicated conviction.

In its three-sentence order signed by Chief Justice George W. Draper III, the court accepted Crowley's petition reinstatement following his sustained discipline and ordered him reinstated as a member of The Missouri Bar in good standing. The court also ordered Crowley to pay all costs in the matter.

Crowley was admitted to the bar in Missouri on Sept. 19, 2012, according to his profile at The Missouri Bar's website.

Crowley was suspended following an October 2018 Supreme Court order with no application for reinstatement to be entertained for six months from the date of the court's order. Crowley also was ordered to pay all costs in the matter.

In November 2018, the court overruled Crowley's motion for leave to file for rehearing.

Crowley's suspension followed his conviction in Phelps County Circuit Court for driving while intoxicated, a Class E felony, according to the court's order.

At the time of his suspension, Crowley was an associate with Steelman, Gaunt & Horsefield, now Steelman & Gaunt, in Rolla where he practiced criminal defense, DWI, personal injury and wills and trusts law, according to his profile posted to the firm's website at the time.

Crowley was arrested by Rolla Police in November 2017 on charges of driving while intoxicated, driving while revoked and making an improper turn, according to a local news story, which cited a city police report.

The following January, Crowley was indicted by a public grand jury for felony DWI persistent offender and a misdemeanor driving while revoked.

Crowley was represented during the disciplinary proceedings by Jefferson City attorneys Dale C. Doerhoff and Shelly A. Kintzel and David Lloyd Steelman of Steelman & Gaunt, according to records of the proceedings available online. Jefferson City attorney Sharon Weedin acted on behalf of the office of chief disciplinary counsel.
