About Us


About Cross Law Group

We’re a law firm in Reno, Nevada, with one focus: you. Big firms are great for big clients, but when it comes to people and their families, we believe that smaller is better. You’ll find that our approach to the practice of law is very personal. We interact directly with clients and remove the formality that is common in most law firms. By scaling back and focusing on fewer clients, we’re able to build personal relationships with clients, understand their needs, and provide solutions that not only solve the problem at hand but help them achieve their long-term personal, professional, and financial goals. We are proud to count many of our clients as friends and maintain relationships long after their legal issue has been resolved.

We help clients with three things: trusts, estates, and taxes. We believe that focusing on a limited number of practice areas lets us deliver superior results and experience to our clients. Whether you need an estate planning attorney in Reno, NV, for a will or trust, help with administering an estate through probate, or need representation in an IRS matter, we can help.
