Andrew Carruthers

Andrew Carruthers has been appointed an Associate Judge for the 3rd Judicial Circuit in Illinois.  The circuit encompasses both Bond and Madison Counties.

For nearly seven years, Carruthers had a vibrant practice at HeplerBroom related to real estate transactions, municipal issues, business disputes, and election matters. For the past year, he has served the public as Chief of the Madison County State’s Attorney’s Civil Division. In speaking of Carruthers’ appointment, Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Haine (also a former HeplerBroom attorney) noted Carruthers’ “integrity and . . . passion for the rule of law.” Carruthers will be sworn in on January 3.

HeplerBroom wishes Andy great success in his new role.

HeplerBroom is pleased to announce that its physical offices have reopened. While the health and safety of our clients, employees, and families, remain our top priority, HeplerBroom attorneys and staff are returning to our offices on full-time or modified schedules. Our offices are open to visitors and clients with scheduled appointments, with appropriate screening of visitors and social-distancing protocols. HeplerBroom will continue to follow CDC recommendations for cleaning and sanitizing.

We are very proud of the dedicated efforts of our attorneys and staff to provide great service and work product to our clients during the pandemic. This would not have been possible without the incredible support provided by the HeplerBroom IT Department and other essential personnel who supported our personnel and clients from the office locations while the rest of our teams worked remotely.

If you have questions about visiting our offices, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you in person again in the near future.
