Congratulations to Ben Ranz on his Jury Trial Win! Great work Ben on a difficult case!
Ben got his first ever jury trial win late last month on an assault charge in Municipal Court. His client walked out of the Justice Center, a free man after 35 days, waiting to go to trial.
There was an altercation between Ben’s client and an “off and on again” girlfriend. Arguing self-defense, Ben showed that while she had a lump on her forehead, his client had bloody bite marks on both of his forearms, his chest and his shin. The jury confirmed that Ben’s client was much more credible than the girlfriend and that him testifying made all the difference to them.
Ben noted that this win was a team effort since he had invaluable help from Maggie Stork, who sat second chair.
