Attorney Jason Reese Featured in The Indiana Lawyer Leadership in Law 2019 as Distinguished Barrister Honoree

Wagner Reese

As one of Indiana’s leading trial lawyers, Jason Reese also is a leader in his profession, mentoring young lawyers and exemplifying community service. As his personal injury firm has grown, including moving in 2017 into a new state-of-the-art office and tripling the number of attorneys on staff, so has Reese’s commitment to service. These include multiple bar activities, extensive pro bono work through the Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic and leadership involvement in charitable efforts such as EDGE Mentoring, CenterPoint Counseling and Grace Church, among others.

Jason Reese’s outstanding legal experience and achievements have long since earned him the respect of the legal community and his peers. Attorney Reese has been honored by The Indiana Lawyer, a distinguished legal publication, as a 2019 “Distinguished Barrister”.

The Indiana Lawyer Leadership in Law aims to honor members of the legal profession by recognizing the most distinguished attorneys in each practice area. Each year, the publication carefully selects only 15 men and women for this honor based on their professional achievements and their commitment to service in their communities.

According to Greg Morris, the President and Publisher of The Indiana Lawyer, “Honorees in the Distinguished Barrister category have dedicated their lives to the practice of law and serving their communities. The selected honorees are a credit to their profession and have worked tirelessly throughout their careers to help their clients, their colleagues, and the legal community as a whole.”

Once selected, all Leadership in Law Award recipients are invited to a reception where past and present winners receive recognition for their achievements. The reception for the 2019 honorees will take place on May 8 at TwoDEEP Brewing in downtown Indianapolis beginning at 5:00 pm.

Attorney Jason Reese’s interview was published in the Leadership in Law article, where he was celebrated for his outstanding work as a trial lawyer and mentor within the legal community. The publication credits our firm’s growth in part to Jason’s commitment to excellent legal service, as well as his involvement in bar activities, pro bono work, and leadership in various charitable organizations.

Within the article, Jason Reese shares the answers to several questions about his practice, his advice for young lawyers, what he finds most rewarding about his practice, and more. Throughout the interview, Attorney Jason Reese credits much of his own success to the mentors he’s learned from and the partner, Steve Wagner, who he’s worked alongside at Wagner Reese for nearly 20 years.
