Progressive innovation and a heart for giving back to the community is the story of Heritage Law Group. Owner Jake Mason spends countless hours providing professional legal counsel to clients, educating groups on topics varying from basic estate planning to legal consequences of dementia, and serving to help those in need. He and his team volunteer their time personally and professionally to support Gallatin and the surrounding communities. Mason also dedicates his time and resources to create new events and opportunities for the community in the areas of education and wellness.
“When I started Heritage Law Group five years ago, my goal was to make lawyers more accessible to everyone in their community. I’m very thankful to my clients and my staff for making that dream a reality,” states Mason. “Our community is strengthened by its members working to make it a great place to live. Helen Keller said, “Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much,” and I take that to heart in order to serve my community.”
