Family Attorney, Kristina Hess hits the Best Seller List with “More Than Money”

Kristina combines her passion for law, mediation, and legacies in her estate planning firm, KR Hess Law, P.C. Kristina’s mission is to empower and equip families to protect their wealth, provide for and protect their minor children, and to create legacies that last through charitable planning and by passing on intangible wealth to future generations. Kristina’s goal is to be your family’s trusted advisor and to assist you in making the best legal, financial, and business decisions throughout your life and to be there to guide your loved ones when you cannot be.

The new book, More Than Money: Creating a Legacy That Really Matters was released on Thursday, May 12, 2011. It features strategies for family and wealth planning beyond the typical advice of passing money along to one’s family and heirs. While these attorneys certainly understand the value of such planning, they authored the book to shed light on the more important subjects that transcend the typical financial portion of an estate plan. Ms. Hess contributed a chapter to the book titled “How To Leave A Legacy That Lasts.”

From CelebrityPress:

What is life really all about? Why are we really here? What do you really leave behind when you die? This is a book that answers those questions for you, not on the spiritual or metaphysical plane, but instead from the perspective that matters most to us – how will you impact those people you care about most after you are gone? In this unique collaborative style book, these questions are answered by some of the top lawyers throughout the United States and Canada who specialize in this field.

Why are lawyers answering the questions about the meaning of life, why we are here and what really happens when we die? Because these lawyers get an ‘up-close and personal’ view of the reality of what we leave behind on a continuing basis. They work with their clients daily to help leave a meaningful and lasting legacy that is about so much More Than Money.

After such a successful release, Kristina R. Hess will be recognized by The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best seller lists.
