William "Bill" Cruse grew up in Pearl River County. He graduated from Picayune Memorial High School in 2001 and originally attended Pearl River Community College in 2003. He transferred to Mississippi College, where he graduated with a chemistry degree in 2005. Then, he graduated from the Mississippi School of Law in 2009 and began practicing that same year. His parents, Fred and Dianne Cruse, founded Fred’s Westside Pharmacy in Picayune, and his brother, Gordon Cruse, owns the pharmacy.

He opened Cruse Law Firm, PLLC in 2017 to focus on real estate transactions, estate planning, probate, and other forms of transactional law. Since then Cruse Law Firm has grown to add additional attorneys, staff, and interns to insure expertise in each area of practice and that the client receives the attention they deserve.
