History: How LegaLees was started


Lee and Kristy Phillips, LegaLees CorporationLee Phillips

Lee is a United States Supreme Court Counselor who has helped over half million people understand how to use the law to make more money and protect their assets.  He has practiced law for over 30 years and helped some of the wealthiest people protect themselves.  He is the author of 15 books, has given over 5000 live lectures, and is a popular continuing education teacher for attorneys, accountants, insurance, and finance professionals.

Kristy Phillips

Kristy was diagnosed with ALS in July 2014, and passed away in September 2019. Her advice and input can be found woven throughout all LegaLees materials.

When Lee was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 1982, he and Kristy faced the types of legal and financial tragedies they write about. During Lee’s months of debilitating cancer treatment and hospitalization, they were compelled to gain firsthand experience in effectively dealing with asset protection, the legal system, and insurance companies.

Kristy decided she was never going to be stuck in the same position as she was at the start of  Lee’s illness. Even though their three children were still young, she went back to school and received her Juris Doctorate and a B.A. from Brigham Young University. After being admitted to practice law before the US Supreme Court and before the Utah State Bar, she served for one year as the legal clerk for the Honorable Judge Ray M Harding, and then corporate counsel for Capital Source, Inc., a venture capital search firm. For decades she oversaw development projects and customer support for LegaLees Corporation.
