Hegvik focuses his practice in construction litigation, representing design professionals, builders and developers. Licensed in Illinois and Missouri, he is a member of the American Bar Association; Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis; Illinois Bar Association and Missouri Bar Association.

Rising Star® is a rating service of up-and-coming attorneys who are age 40 or younger, or who have been in practice for 10 years or less. The annual selections are made using a rigorous multi-phased process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. No more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in a state receive this recognition.
