Indiana Super Lawyers®

A Strong Reputation in Our Legal Communities

Super Lawyers is a highly respected rating service for attorneys from more than 70 different practice areas, including personal injury. Each year, the organization completes a comprehensive peer-review alongside their patented evaluation process to determine which lawyers in the U.S. will be included on its Super Lawyers and Rising Stars list. At Wagner Reese, we’re thrilled to announce that eight of our lawyers have been selected to this list for 2021.

For all eight Wagner Reese attorneys chosen, this year’s announcement represents a consecutive year of recognition by Super Lawyers for their legal skill, professional achievement, and exceptional reputation among their peers in the legal field. 

Our founding partners are also counted among our recognized group of attorneys, with Attorney Stephen Wagner receiving this honor for the 17th year and Attorney Jason Reese, who was also named a Distinguished Barrister by The Indiana Lawyer in 2019, receiving this honor for the 11th time. Both partners were also recognized by Super Lawyers among the elite Top 50 in 2019, 2020, and 2021, further distinguishing them as among the best personal injury lawyers in Indiana. 

Attorney Stephanie Cassman is  being recognized by  Super Lawyers for the 12th consecutive year and is on the Indiana Top 25 Women list for 2021, an honor she has received since 2016.

What Does It Mean to Be Part of Super Lawyers®?

Super Lawyers® organizes an annual rating system for lawyers and attorneys of various practices and specialties. Super Lawyers® members are formally nominated by their peers before being selected based on their professional achievements. The rigorous, patented selection process involves 12 indicators of success and outstanding professional merit, as well as independent research and peer evaluations.

Before the final selection, each candidate’s standing is verified with their local licensing authority and checked for a clean record of disciplinary or criminal proceedings. The lawyers are grouped into four categories based on firm size to ensure fair competition, and the final list of Super Lawyers® members represents no more than 5% of all practicing attorneys in each state.

To be a Rising Stars℠ member, an attorney must go through the same intense selection process and be held to the same high standards. The key difference is Rising Stars℠ members must also be under the age of 40, or have less than 10 years of practice experience. The increased restrictions on membership means no more than 2.5% of all lawyers in each state can be Rising Stars℠ members for a given year.

The list of Super Lawyers® appears annually in the state edition of Super Lawyers® Magazine, as well as in city and regional newspapers and publications. The list serves as a helpful resource for consumers who need a lawyer to provide counsel or representation. We are so proud of all our attorneys who have made the cut, often repeatedly, and they are so honored to be recognized by such an outstanding organization.
