The Madison County Record Dec. 22, 2011, 2:00pm


The Law Firm of John J. Hopkins and Associates has re-located from its Edwardsville location to 500 6th St. in Alton.

After 11 years on the top floor of a multi tenant building at 1120 Route 157, the firm now occupies a re-furbished free standing office at the corner of 6th and Langdon.

Owner and President John J. Hopkins, in announcing the long planned move, said, "It was time for change, time for a move.

"We have certainly enjoyed our time in Edwardsville, but we are now a somewhat smaller firm and we did not need as much space as before. Alton is my home, and the office is but few blocks away, making it very convenient. I am near other attorneys in town, and look forward to establishing our presence in the RiverBend."

The law firm phone number remains the same, (618) 655-9600.

John J. Hopkins and Associates is a personal injury law firm, with an emphasis on medical malpractice and nursing home litigation.

Hopkins has earned the rating of "A-V," the highest rating from Martindale Hubbell for legal ability and ethics.

He is listed in the Bar Registry of Preeminent Lawyers, and has been selected as a member of the Leading Lawyer Network, a distinction reserved for only less than 5 percent of practicing attorneys.

He was recently selected in a poll conducted of practicing attorneys as one of the Top 50 Consumer Lawyers in downstate Illinois.
