Attorney Stephen Flack of Prairie Village, KS; ethical leper-con

The Kansas Supreme Court presented Stephen Paul Flack with a law license in 1996.
In 2007 the Kansas Supreme Court found Stephen guilty of the following misconduct.
  1. Failed to explain matter to extent necessary to allow client to make informed decisions
  2. Failed to respond to client inquiries
  3. Charged a clearly excessive fee (cheater)
  4. Failed to promptly notify clients (victims) of receipt of funds on their behalf
  5. Failed to promptly deliver client funds to client
  6. Failed to properly supervise non-attorney office staff
  7. Improperly shared attorney fees with non-lawyers
  8. Assisted non-attorneys in the unauthorized practice of law
  9. Engaged in conduct adversely reflecting on his fitness to practice law
  10. Engaged in conduct involving fraud, deceit, dishonesty or misrepresentation
  11. Engaged in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice
  12. Engaged in a pattern of misconduct
  13. Multiple violations of the disciplinary rules
  14. Clients (victims) were elderly widowed women particularly vulnerable
Stephen entered into a services agreement with ALMS, Ltd., a Dallas, Texas, company engaged in sending mass mailings to a targeted group of residents in Kansas and Missouri soliciting trust, will, power of attorney, and asset transfer documentation preparation and other services that were to be performed by Stephen.
ALMS collected a $1,995 attorney fee from prospective clients. Of the $1,995 attorney fee, Stephen paid $1,745 per completed trust he performed to ALMS. Stephen never met with any of the clients that ALMS were able to dupe into purchasing their services.
Subsequently, Stephen’s legal malpractice insure was forced to pay at least sixteen (16) of his client/victims amounts ranging from $1,294 to $2,495. Many of Stephens’s victims were mentally impaired because of their age. However, this fact didn’t deter Stephen the Louse from bilking them.
As a consequence of his misconduct, the apologists for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Kansas Supreme Court punished Stephen by gifting him with a complimentary censure.
As we speak (ca. October 2012) Stephen practices at 9019 Fontana in Prairie Village, Kansas.
