The Indiana Lawyer annually honors members of the legal community for their professional commitments, social and civic involvement, and volunteer efforts. The Leadership in Law Distinguished Barrister Award is given each year to 15 Indiana attorneys who have shown a commitment to their profession and the clients and communities they serve.
Our team of Indiana attorneys at Wagner Reese are excited to announce that Attorney Jason Reese, a Partner of our firm, has been named a Distinguished Barrister. The honorees will be officially celebrated on May 8, 2019 during the “Leadership in Law” reception. This is a fantastic achievement for Attorney Reese and the firm.
