“I am honored to appoint Daniel Gabler to the Milwaukee County Circuit Court,” said Governor Walker. “Gabler has established himself as a respected and accomplished attorney in the Milwaukee County area for over 27 years. This experience, coupled with Gabler’s judicial temperament and firm commitment to the rule of law give me great confidence that he will make an excellent judge.”
Upon learning of the appointment Gabler said: “I am pleased that the Governor has the confidence in me to succeed Judge Richard J. Sankovitz in Branch 29 of the Milwaukee County Circuit Court. While I know I won’t be taking over Judge Sankovitz’s calendar, succeeding him is an honor and a privilege of the highest order. I will do all that I can to fill the huge void of knowledge and experience created as a result of his retirement after a distinguished and laudable career serving the residents of Milwaukee County as a judge.”

Wisconsin Court of Appeals Judge William Brash III highly recommends Gabler stating, “He has a wealth of experience which he would bring to the bench in serving Milwaukee County.” He adds, “Dan is a good and moral individual.”
