It is with deep sadness but fond remembrance that Gass Weber Mullins shares the news of the death of one of our founding partners, Ric Gass. Ric died suddenly in his home on October 13th.

Ric was a creative and dedicated trial lawyer who worked hard for his clients and lived a commitment to excellence.

Ric served as national trial and supervising counsel in a broad range of cases in venues across the country.  Most recently, Benchmark Litigation selected him as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer in North America.  Ric served as a Fellow and President of the Federation of Defense & Corporate Counsel and the Litigation Counsel of America.  He was also a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers and a Diplomat in the American Board of Trial Advocates. He was a past Wisconsin chairman of the Defense Research Institute.  He taught for many years at the Marquette University Law School and frequently lectured nationally on legal topics. He was also a teacher and an inspiration for younger lawyers at this firm.

We ask you to share Ric’s memory and our condolences with Ric’s family during this time of grieving.  Memorial donations may be made to the Marquette Law School Scholarship Fund: Marquette Law School, Eckstein Hall, Att: Scholarship Fund, PO Box 1881, Milwaukee, WI 53201-1881.
