Attorney Alf Langan of Green Bay, WI; liar, greedy cheater

 
The state of Wisconsin presented Alf Langan with a law license in 1991 after he graduated from St. Louis University Law School.
 
The Office of Lawyer Regulation (OLR) charged and found Alf guilty of the following misconduct involving two client matters.
 
False letter re: Experience
  1. Lied about his experience in an advertising letter to a married couple with tax debts
  2. Alf did not label his false letter to the married couple as an advertisement
  3. Failed to act with reasonable diligence (lazy)
  4. Refused to return an unearned fee (cheater)
  5. Engaging in a blatant conflict of interest to the detriment of a client
  6. Formulated an illegal agreement limiting his liability to a client for legal malpractice
Based on Alf’s lies, the couple (victims) hired him to obtain their IRS file, prepare an officer in compromise (OIC) to the IRS, and to attempt negotiations. Alf didn’t attempt negotiations or file an OIC. The clients fired Alf and requested a refund of their fee. Alf refused to refund the fee.
 
Child Custody matter
 
In this matter Alf again provided moronic and/or worthless services to a client that was contesting her ex-husband’s motion seeking sole custody of their child. Alf missed deadlines for contesting the ex-husband’s motion which resulted in him gaining sole custody.
 
The client (aka, victim) already paid Alf $27,000 in fees for his incompetent services, but he claimed she owned him another $11,000. Alf then steered the woman to a broker who paid cash to purchase was she was owed under a 1988 structured settlement from a personal injury claim. The client was required to be represented by a lawyer in the sale, and Alf agreed he’d do it at no cost. Of course Alf never advised her about the obvious conflict between his interests in receive the sale proceeds for his fees and her interests in proceeding with the sale.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, the admirers of Attorney Misfits sitting on the Wisconsin Supreme Court punished Alf by gifting him with a reprimand.
 
As we speak (ca. April 2012) Alf practices law at 2300 Riverside Drive in Green Bay.
