8 Wagner Reese Attorneys Selected to Super Lawyers in 2020

Wagner Reese

Every year, the Super Lawyers® organization undertakes a comprehensive peer review and evaluation process to determine which lawyers will be included on their well-respected Super Lawyers® and Rising Stars lists. At Wagner Reese, we’re delighted to announce that 8 of our personal injury lawyers have been selected to one of these lists for 2020.

For six of the eight attorneys chosen this year, this represents another consecutive year of recognition from the Super Lawyers® organization for their legal skill, sterling peer reputation, and wide-ranging professional acumen. Our founding partners are also counted among that group, with Attorney Stephen Wagner selected for a total of 16 years, and Attorney Jason Reese – who was also named a Distinguished Barrister by The Indiana Lawyer in 2019 – selected for 10 years.

Additionally, Stephen Wagner and Jason Reese were both chosen to the elite Super Lawyers Top 50 in 2019 and 2020, setting them apart as top-tier personal injury lawyers in the Indiana region. Partner Stephanie Cassman was also honored with a selection to the Top 25: Women Indiana Super Lawyers list in recognition of her significant contributions to the legal community.

We’d like to congratulate all of the selectees for receiving this prestigious award:
