Madison County Record columnist John J. Hopkins has been named to the prestigious Leading Lawyers Network directory of attorneys.

Other area attorneys named to the list include personal injury attorneys Joseph R. Brown, Jr. of Lucco & Brown in Edwardsville; Robert C. Nelson, Jr. of Nelson & Nelson and George R. Ripplinger of Ripplinger & Zimmer of Belleville; and Judy L. Cates and Thomas Q. Keefe, Jr. of Swansea.
