I had eviction removed from my credit report, and I still can’t believe PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST raise my credit score to 804 excellent score within few days. He also helps me apply for PPP loan with the sum of $35k which reflect in my bank account with a low interest rate. I saw a lot of good reviews about his works and he would respond swiftly.

Probate Case - Done Right
Tyson was always the one I spoke to. He worked diligently to get our case closed and with the best possible outcome. After a long process he and his staff worked with every issue we had. They resolved our estate issues and we received everything we were supposed to thanks to their hard work and dedication. We would highly recommend Tyson Cross and Cross Law.

"Eager to help, highly professional, and an all around great guy"
Last year, my wife and I had our first child and we were starting to get that uneasy feeling about not having a trust set up for our newly expanded family. Shortly thereafter I had the pleasure of meeting Tyson at a networking function. Some call it fate. I call it destiny. Not long after meeting Tyson and getting to know him better over the coming months, it became very apparent that he was the man for the job. We set up an appointment with him to go over our options and to set up a plan of action that worked best for our family. He was extremely thorough and made sure we understood everything throughout the entire process. Tyson is eager to help, highly professional, and an all around great guy. I highly recommend him. Thanks Tyson!

Hiring Tyson Cross was the best decision I made!
I live in California and my mother passed away in 2013. Nevada legal services initially found an attorney to handle my mothers estate for me pro bono, what a nightmare that turned out to be! The attorney who was handling my case was never available and completely uncooperative in answering any of my questions. The case went to court and a settlement was reached and I thought that was the end of my legal worries regarding my mothers estate. A year later when I attempted to sell her home, I found out my attorney had never filed the final paperwork with probate court so as far as the state of Nevada was concerned my case was still open and pending. I already had hired a realtor, the house was listed, and there was already an offer made, I needed the title to complete the sale and I couldn't get it until the case was resolved! I left twelve messages with my attorney's office and never once got a call back, I was finally able to get in touch with his secretary after several attempts only to be told that he was out of the office but the paperwork I needed was not in my file and I got no other advice beyond that. My realtor also left several messages for my attorney and heard nothing back, I was stuck and had no idea how to proceed, finally it became obvious to me I needed a new attorney to handle my case, hopefully one that was more available and proactive. I started calling all of the probate attorneys listed in Reno and each one I spoke to said they might be able to help but they didn't have any openings in their schedule for several months and I needed someone right away. I called at least ten different attorneys and they all had the same scheduling conflicts or were about to go on vacation, only two actually spoke with me directly. Then I called Cross Law and finally I was able to speak directly with an attorney who was not only helpful but optimistic about wrapping things up according to the timeline I had to work with. Hiring Tyson Cross turned out to be the best decision I made during this whole ordeal. Immediately the situation improved, and all of a sudden I was dealing with someone professional who was willing to take the time to answer all of my questions and not only that was willing to speak with my realtor about the legalities of me selling my mothers home. Right away he got a hearing scheduled with the court to file the final paperwork and officially close probate on my mothers estate. Because he kept my realtor in the loop with the proceedings, I was also able to extend the contract I had with the buyers and in less than a month and a half, everything was wrapped up. I never even had to leave California, Mr Cross handled everything himself, and was always very prompt to return my calls and emails. He was also available to my realtor for any questions and once the hearing took place everything was wrapped up and finished less than a week later. His rates were reasonable, and he was even able to reduce the amount of outstanding medical fees attached to my mothers estate to zero. I can't say enough about Mr Cross, his professionalism and efficiency far exceeded my expectations and if you choose him to be your attorney you will not be disappointed!

Tyson Cross: Review your Attorney
I highly recommend Tyson Cross for anyone that has concerns with their taxes or simply needs advice from a Tax Attorney. From the time I first talked to him on the phone I realized I was in good hands. Upon meeting him, it was a confirmation that I had made the right choice. Tyson has a manner about him that is very calming, which brings great relief when one is involved in serious taxation problems. Tax issues are exhausting and the worries can be serious. I recommend Tyson to help relief your stress and concerns.

Highly Recommended
When I read on Tyson Cross's website that practicing tax law is as "challenging and rewarding as careers come," I knew I had the right attorney. He took on our task: an operating agreement for a partnership with 14 partners -- that all 14 had to agree to! Tyson first walked us through the process, then quoted us a reasonable price that he didn't exceed. He drew up the agreement as per our needs, was in close contact with our accountant, responded promptly to our corrections, and completed the job within the allotted time frame. He's young (though not too young), professional, engaged, and cool. I recommend him highly. He's now our attorney. We'll need him again soon when we convert this partnership into a corporation.

Superb local talent
We sought Tyson's help with a compliance issue arising from a change in IRS interpretation. From the beginning Tyson was clear, prompt, well organized and helpful. Throughout the representation he offered solutions, guidance, suggestions, alternatives and an excellent overview of IRS procedures, timing, negotiation room and outcomes. We wholeheartedly endorse Tyson for dedication, professionalism, technical skill and quality of advice.

Best Estate Planner in Reno
Cross Law is the place to go if you need estate planning in Reno or Sparks. I had put off getting an estate plan for years, but I'm glad I finally got it taken care of. The owner Tyson made the process easy and made me feel like I was his only client. He drafted my will, powers of attorney, and set up a couple of specialized trusts for me. I'm very happy with the results. Thanks again Tyson for all your hard work.
