Prepare Ramsey Case
(Ramsey Update #52)
The Boulder Police Department is confirming that three prominent Colorado attorneys have been engaged to provide legal advice in connection with the Ramsey investigation. The attorneys Richard N. Baer, of Sherman & Howard, L.L.C., Dan Hoffman, of McKenna & Cunio, and Robert N. Miller, of LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene & MacRae, L.L.P., were approached by detectives and asked to assist in this matter.
Boulder Police Chief Tom Koby, Commander John Eller, and the investigators assigned to the Ramsey homicide investigation met with Hoffman, Miller and Baer at the Boulder Police Department on Thursday, July 24, to discuss the possibility of such a partnership and the scope of services that might be provided. That afternoon, Koby and Eller met with District Attorney Alex Hunter and advised him of their intent to hire this group of attorneys. Hunter endorsed the action, and police confirmed their intention to accept the pro bono services of Miller, Baer and Hoffman.
According to Eller, “We have begun discussing the components of the case with our attorneys. They are committed to this case for the duration, and we are extremely pleased and grateful for their interest and assistance.” In response to early inquiries regarding the motivation for seeking out additional legal assistance on the case, Eller stated, “The investigators assigned to this case have diligently and quietly conducted their investigation into this homicide. They have from the beginning sought out the very best consultation available in a number of disciplines, seeking experts in forensics, law, medicine, psychology and numerous technological fields. The addition of these prominent and civic-minded attorneys to provide legal advice is in character with how we have approached our work in this case.
“Miller, Baer and Hoffman bring an incredible amount of experience in criminal law and complex civil litigation to this case,” added Eller.
