Kathy Cronyn (nee´ Zelden) is a former attorney from Los Angeles. She is married to Lance Cronyn and they operate their practice together. She is very attractive and about 20 years younger than her husband. During the financial recession she handled some foreclosure cases, including the case of Terrence Spencer. When her husband concocted a scheme to free convicted rapist and murderer, Preston Borders, Mrs. Cronyn assisted by convincing Spencer to use his position with the LAP to plant DNA evidence. The conspiracy became apparent when Harry Bosch and Mickey Haller exposed the link between the Cronyns and Spencer.
