David L. Abt, Attorney


Hailing from a small farming town outside of Wausau by way of Orange County, David and his family have been residing in the Westby, Wis., area for nearly four decades. David started Abt Law Office in 1986, and has been actively involved in the community ever since.  

David’s law firm is the sole legal representative for Westby City Attorney and Vernon County Corporation Counsel. David served for ten years on the board of the Wisconsin Association for Justice, formerly the Wisconsin Academy of Trial Lawyers, and is ranked nationally in the top five percent of attorneys by the industry standard Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished BV rating. His reputation for transparency and success paired with his unmatched expertise are the reasons that Abt Law Office operates exclusively on referrals.

In addition to his legal practice, David is a successful local businessman and farmer. He is co-founder, co-manager, partner and CFO for Wild Rose Dairy, LLC. Established in 1998, the operation milks 1000 head of dairy cows and 900 head of heifers, with over 1600 acres of corn and alfalfa. Additionally, David owns and manages Oak Knolls Farms, a 500-acre diversified farm raising corn, hay, soybeans, oats, wine grapes, sheep, cattle and horses.

When David is not in the office, he can be found tracking down deer, duck, turkey or fish with his dog Max, or he’s pontooning on the Mississippi with his family and friends.
