As reported on 18 July 2013 by WireNews+Co, a complaint was filed with the New Hampshire Supreme Court, Attorney Discipline Office against two New Hampshire lawyers.

Timothy J. Goulden and Armand M. Hyatt were accused of having violated the attorney-client privilege. Additionally, the two lawyers advised their client not to contact a New Hampshire State official, who was investigating allegations of a historical sexual abuse claim. Goulden and Hyatt repeatedly told their client not to tell the state investigator who his lawyer was and not to have any contact with the official so that a potential award from any future civil proceedings would not reduced. They even contacted a doctor who was caring for their client and suggested that the claim being made was fraudulent, delaying much-needed counselling. 

On 12 November 2013 James L. Kruse wrote to WireNews+Co to complain that publishing an article about the complaint against the two lawyers "appears to violate our rules requiring confidentiality at this preliminary stage of the disciplinary process."

Kruse's office prefers to operate in secret.

Unsurprisingly, less than a month later, Kruse subsequently exonerated the pair of lawyers by means of a perfunctory investigation and biased presentation of the data available to his office.

Looking for a lawyer in New Hampshire?

Give these two a wide berth.
