Raised in a modest home, Mr. Laufenberg inculcated moral ethics and values very early on in his life.

A 1972 B.A. degree graduate in police science and criminal justice from the University of Wisconsin–Platteville, Mr. Laufenberg enrolled at the Marquette University Law School and received his Juris Doctor in 1975. Moreover, the National Board of Trial Advocacy certified him in civil trial law and pretrial civil practice.
