Bethany J. Cross
I enjoy spending my free time at the playground, the ball field or in gymnasiums watching my children participating in and engaging in their various activities, whether individually or with teammates. It is important for me to be their number one supporter.
It is equally important for me to teach my children the value of teamwork, problem solving, and collaboration. These simple life lessons have helped shape my legal practice. The most basic life lessons can assist in the most complex legal transactions.
Bethany concentrates her practice in the areas of:
- Business Law
- Real Estate Law
- Estate Planning
- Housing Law
A native of Bancroft, IA, Bethany graduated with a degree in legal studies. She obtained her law degree from the Mitchell Hamline College of Law where she was recognized on the Dean’s List and was the recipient of both the Wendy Watson Scholarship and the Warren A. Morrow Scholarship.
Prior to joining Rinke Noonan, Bethany’s experience included eight years as a paralegal for a renewable energy contractor.
Bethany is a board member for Anna Marie’s Alliance, current member of the Stearns Benton Bar Association, and volunteer with the St. Cloud Legal Clinic for Veterans. She is also involved with Minnesota Women Lawyers, St. Cloud Area Young Professionals, the Minnesota Multi Housing Association and the Central Minnesota Housing Association.
