  •  Current Member of Montana State Bar
  • 1998 Heggen Law Office, P.C. opened
  • 1996 Law Degree, University of Montana
  • 1991 B.A. Economics, Yale University

Jed was born in Kalispell, Montana where he graduated from Flathead High School in 1987. He then enrolled at Yale University where he graduated in 1991 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics. After working for two years in the family business, Jed moved to Missoula to study law at the University of Montana where he graduated with a law degree in 1996.

After his graduation, Jed practiced law at several firms, developing a strong business law foundation. He opened his own practice, Heggen Law Office, P.C., in 1998. He practices primarily in the areas of commercial law, real estate and business consulting and is a member of the State Bar of Montana.

Jed and his wife Jennifer have also continued to own and operate other businesses outside of the law firm. This independent ownership has given him a unique perspective in his ability to advise clients on challenges that businesses face operating in this region.

Jed currently lives in Missoula and he loves to spend time bragging about the accomplishments of his wife and children. Jennifer decided in the past few years to become a chef and after graduating at the top of her class in culinary school, decided to intern in Napa Valley at Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery. She has since followed up by being a well-respected dessert chef and also teaching at the University of Montana Culinary School. Taylor, Jed’s oldest daughter is graduating from the University of Oregon at the top of her class and will be attending law school. Slade, Jed’s son, is a catcher for the Oregon Ducks and hopes to someday play professional baseball. Jed’s youngest daughter is not only her Dad’s hunting partner, she is an accomplished gymnast and track athlete. She placed 15th in the USATF Nationals in 2015 in the triple jump. Jed and Jennifer spend as much time as possible following and supporting their kids’ endeavors. Also, as a family, they love fishing, hunting and spending time enjoying the beauty of Montana. Jared is also a licensed pilot and travels to the extent that time allows.
