I have a couple of names but that's about it. I know some folks here on the forum have arranged a meeting, etc. It’s certainly a good idea to have a one on one with a lawyer simply to know the facts from fiction. I guess I’m just lazy or don’t care to spend the consult fee. I really just pray that I remain as a hobbyist vs. a hero.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
I have my lawyer's office and cell numbers in my phone, and memorized, and written at home, and with trusted friends...
I've been his gunsmith for 19 years, he did my divorce for a Marlin .45-70 and an NFA trust for some AK47 drums and magazines.

When I got my Oregon CHL I had to go through a two full day training course plus a shooting test to qualify. One of the presenters was the local District Attorney who as a strong advocate of concealed carry. I will pass his advice along to you. First, find a lawyer who knows something about defending clients in handgun cases!!! His point was that many lawyers do not know one end of a gun from another and provide terrible defense/counsel in that arena. Your local bar association can help here.
Second, make an appointment with this lawyer (small cost involved) and get to know him/her BEFORE you might need the lawyer's services. If you absolutely need legal help because of a shooting infraction that is NOT the time to get to know your attorney.
I followed the D.A.'s advice and selected an attorney who became both a friend and a shooting partner. Thank goodness I have never needed his services but in case I do - I am ready.

As far as LEO defense goes: an officer may still have to worry about finding a lawyer in the event that a person or organization holds charges against him or her.
I just finished reading "The Ayoob Files" book, as I do in these gun magazines, and they do not make me smile. They may also make us hesitate, which may or may not be good, regardless of our 'hood. I want to read more such stories.
