    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.

    George,

    In a perfect world, I would agree with you. But, if it was a perfect world, we would never need to carry a handgun.

    I have the name and number of just such a person in my wallet and phone. Meet with them; the first consultation is free. Let them know who you are and why you MIGHT need their services. I have had my CHL since '96 and that attorney info was in my wallet before my CHL arrived i the mail. I buy him lunch about once a year just to stay in touch.
    A bit of forethought now makes sense because if you just had to deploy your weapon, you might not be thinking absolutely clearly when making the choice of the person who can keep you out of jail and make a big difference in the outcome of the civil suit that is sure to follow...

    Just my $0.02 if it's worth that much.

    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.

    Yeah, he says he has spent more time with this"client" than any other non-troublemaker on his list... I plan to keep it that way. I have known him 14 years just from this contact.

    You gave a lawyer a gun to settle your divorce?

    Now that's funny...

    I have been meaning to do a few pre-interviews with some local lawyers...maybe this summer.

    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.

    Yeah, I know. Poor choice of words there. I was trying to say that I didn't think LEO's got to choose their lawyer. I thought it worked like public defenders when a civilian gets arrested. Is that incorrect? I wouldn't trust a lawyer just cause a union did.

    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.
