Caroline R. Kert:  Complicit?

For unscrupulous organizations such as Broomfield, CO law firm of Daniel T. Goodwin, P.C., online reputation management can be a means to conceal nefarious acts. It can also be a valuable tool for individuals and organizations unjustly targeted by negative internet posts. The services provided by companies specializing in the removal, or SEO crippling of these negative attacks can provide a “fresh start” for the unjustly maligned. These services come at a price, however. Estimates for reputation management range from $5000.00 to $20,000.00 and up, depending on the reach of the material to be quashed. Oftentimes, reputation management remains an ongoing endeavor, as new sites are uploaded, and social media platforms are used to spread the supposed offending content.

The cost and effort of online reputation management begs the question, “Why not just sue for libel?” Hartmann Conspiracy’s legal analyst was asked that very question as it relates to one Broomfield, Colorado attorney, Daniel T. Goodwin, and his law partners. Mr. Goodwin is alleged to have committed multiple felony offenses in defense of his clients in the Weld County District Court case: Buckley v. Dream Stone, Inc. et. al., a wage claim case.

“Based on the record of the Court, it appears that Goodwin swore to both the Colorado Division of Labor and the Weld County District Court that neither had jurisdicton over the Plaintiff’s wage claim, because it was in front of the other, that’s both a felony and a disbarable offense, ” stated Hartmann Conspiracy’s legal analyst, who declined to be identified.  ”Looks like he cited worker’s comp law here, too, which has nothing to do with the Wage Claim Act.” “This is no ‘error’, everyone involved in these crimes needs to spend some time in a Federal Prison”.

“It also appears that Goodwin worked a fraud on the Division of Labor, saying that the Plaintiff didn’t work for the Dream Stone for a full year, so he wasn’t entitled to his accrued wages. I’m looking at over two years of continuous paycheck stubs here, and I can tell you that Goodwin is a liar,” he continued.

Our legal analyst examined yet another piece of evidence and continued, “This appears to be an award of attorneys’ fees where Goodwin took an $800.00 exhibit, an affidavit actually, from a Motion where no fees were awarded, slapped it on another Motion where fees were awarded, and got paid. That’s forgery. Jesus Christ, this guy needs to be disbarred and in jail.”

So what are Daniel T. Goodwin, and his complicit law partners to do? Daniel T. Goodwin has been publicly called a “Liar”, a “Thief”, a “Felon” among other more unsavory epithets by the Buckley v. Dream Stone, Inc. et. al. Plaintiff.

The answer? Online Reputation Management.

Hartmann Conspiracy has obtained evidence that Stephen W.Donelson, Gene A.Ciancio, Cynthia L. Ciancio and others have aided and abetted Goodwin by contracting with a reputation management company to push evidence of  his criminal acts out of search engine rankings. At the time HC obtained this evidence several years ago, the above-named had spent in excess of $12,000.00: it is believed that amount is now considerably more. “That opens up a whole can of worms for his law partners,” HC’s legal analyst stated.

The Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct stipulate very strict rules to which an attorney licensed to practice in the State of Colorado must comply. Among those requirements are, Candor to the Tribunal, Fairness to Opposing Parties, and most importantly as it pertains to this article, Rule 8.3(a), Which clearly states as follows:

A lawyer who knows that another lawyer has committed a violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct that raises a substantial question as to that lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer in other respects, shall inform the appropriate professional authority.

Rather than comply with the Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct, Colorado attorneys Stephen W. Donelson, Gene A. Ciancio, Cynthia L. Ciancio, Blaine D Bowne, Loren M. Brown, Kyle C. Kreischer, Kathryn R. Laughlin, Shawn L. McIntire, Michelle R. Mieras, Jamie L. Rutten, John M. Vaughan, Gregory C. Walsh, and others, have chosen to aid and abet; proven by the fact that they had authorized internet concealment of Goodwin’s criminal acts.

“Looking at the content of, a libel suit is out of the question for Mr. Goodwin,” HC’s legal analyst concluded. “Short of calling Goodwin something patently libelous, like a homosexual pedophile, calling Goodwin and his partners, ‘felons’, ‘scumbags’, and the like, is perfectly within protected free speech, and there’s not a Goddamn thing they can do about it. Continuing to use a reputation management firm to suppress the facts shown is just going to dig them in deeper.”

Broomfield, Colorado attorneys Stephen W. Donelson, Gene A. Ciancio, and convicted cocaine dealer/attorney Cynthia “8-Ball” Ciancio could not be reached for comment.
