Bryana Cross Bean

Attorney at Law
Law Offices of Bryana Cross Bean

Attorney Bryana Cross Bean’s primary practice areas are estate planning, long-term care planning, elder law, and probate.  She has been a practicing attorney in Washington since 2013 and has had her own practice since 2014.  She holds memberships in the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), the Washington State Bar Association (WSBA), Washington Senior Citizens Lobby, and Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Association (TPCBA).  She is a board member of the Washington Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (WAELA) and is also an active participant in events in the elder care community in Pierce County.

Bryana was originally interested in becoming a physician and started down the pre-med track in college.  She later realized that while she loved helping people, she did not love the science involved.  After taking a number of public health classes, Ms. Bean became interested in health policy.  That interest in health policy lead her into the legal field.  After graduating the University of Washington with degrees in biology and history, she attended law school at Seattle University.  There Bryana discovered that she was more interested in keeping clients out of court than doing to battle in court. 

In her final year of law school, Bryana had the pleasure of working with an elderly couple who needed both estate planning and long-term care planning.  She enjoyed sitting down with them and helping them make their lives better.  This wonderful couple ended up being a significant influence in Ms. Bean’s career, and she has gone on to represent many people in similar situations.

Bryana currently lives in Bonney Lake with her husband, children, and pets.  She enjoys gardening, hiking, and spending time with family.

Mortgage Services

Jenifer Hawkins

I have been in the mortgage business since 2013, deciding after the purchase of our home two years ago that the process was simply too stressful and impersonal. Purchasing a home, whether it is your first or fifth, is a big decision, and can present challenges. I believe that my role is to make the process easier, more personal, and positive. I value the relationships I am lucky enough to cultivate with my clients and the agents I work with. There is no better phone call to make than calling a client to congratulate them on their new home.

As a lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest, I have a deep knowledge of--and love for--this area. My three teenagers, husband, and I live in Auburn, after more than 16 years as residents in Puyallup. We love the unlimited options the Pacific Northwest offers for outdoor activity, whether it is running by the river, playing soccer, or going to the beach or mountains for the weekend. This is an incredibly beautiful part of the world, and we are lucky to call it home.
