Founding partner Attorney Stephen Wagner was recently selected as one of the Top 25 Motor Vehicle Trial Lawyers in Indiana by the Motor Vehicle Trial Lawyers Association (MVTLA)!

A division of The National Trial Lawyers, the MVTLA is an invitation-only professional organization that honors 25 motor vehicle lawyers in every state throughout the country. As with the other awards given by The National Trial Lawyers, selection to this exclusive group signifies that an attorney has consistently surpassed standards of excellence within their practice area as determined by the MVTLA.

To be considered for the Top 25 Motor Vehicle Trial Lawyers, an attorney must meet the following criteria:

  • Have an outstanding reputation among judges, peers, clients, and the greater public as determined by survey
  • Handle motor vehicle claims as a regular part of their practice and have successfully tried such claims to a jury
  • Receive several nominations from the Executive Committee, leading lawyers, and current members of The National Trial Lawyers

Dedicated to fighting for victims of motor vehicle accidents, personal injury accidents, and wrongful death, Attorney Wagner has successfully resolved hundreds of motor vehicle cases over his career through trial verdicts and negotiated settlements.

Attorney Wagner has also been selected by his peers as an Indiana Super Lawyer (2004-2021), an award presented to the top 5% of practicing attorneys in Indiana as well as one of the Top 50 Personal Injury Attorneys (2018-2021) in Indiana by Super Lawyers. In 2006, Mr. Wagner was selected by the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association as the Indiana Trial Lawyer of the Year.

Mr. Wagner has also been named a Distinguished Fellow of the Indianapolis Bar Foundation, recognized for his significant contributions to the legal profession and leadership within the community. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association.

On behalf of our team at Wagner Reese, we’d like to congratulate Attorney Wagner for this significant achievement.  Our firm will continue to pursue justice and seek maximum recovery for motor vehicle accident victims throughout Indiana and beyond.
