Attorney David Bangert of Milwaukee; lying cheater

The state of Wisconsin presented David C. Bangert with a law license in 1975 after he graduated from Valparaiso University Law School.
The Office of Lawyer Regulation (OLR) found David guilty of the following misconduct involving three separate investigations.
David’s misconduct involved his representation of a client in a personal injury case. The client and his wife were estranged and living apart. They both agreed that he owed her the sum of $35,000. The client instructed Dave to prepare a lien in favor of the wife and against the client for $35,000, which was to be paid from any settlement or verdict involving the personal injury case. Dave then sent a signed copy of the lien to the wife and told her he would file it in the circuit court in the pending personal injury case. However, Dave lied to the wife because he never filed the lien.
When the wife discovered that Dave hadn’t filed the lien, Dave told her to not worry about it because he would protect her interest. Subsequently the lawsuit settled for $75,000 and the net proceeds to Dave’s client was $46,000. The client instructed Dave not to honor the lien and to pay the $46,000 directly to him. Dave then distributed the entire $46,000 to his client while refusing to honor the lien to the wife. In truth, Dave knowingly and intentionally defrauded the client’s ex-wife.
As a consequence of his misconduct, the enablers for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Wisconsin Supreme Court punished David by gifting him with a complimentary reprimand.
As we speak (ca. June 2012) Dave practices law at 158 North Broadway in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
