    My lawyer would be found by searching the yellow pages if need be. If I'm able to search the yellow pages, that means I'm still alive and able to do so. The rest depends on what's between here and where I might have gone had I not come out on the winning side. A retainer fee? That's not going to save me from harm's way. Only I can do that to the best of my abilities. If you ever think things will go down the wrong road, we had an old saying in the service.....save one for yourself. Twelve peoples opinions would never save my life...only I will.

    Yellow Pages?

    Talk to a LEO acquaintance and ask them who they would use if they had to use their weapon. You want someone experienced in this sort of thing, not someone who has a huge ad in the YP.
    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.

    Doesn't the Fraternal Order of Police provide a free lawyer to cops when they use their weapon or something like that?

    Yup. That's why I suggested that the OP talk to a LEO and ask him who they use when it happens to them.

    I have my self-defense (NOT criminal defense) lawyer's office, home and cell numbers in my and my wife's phones.

    If the day ever comes when the weapon gets drawn, aimed, fired--I will call 911, then my attorney.

    "Officer, I was in fear for my life. That wo-/man attacked me, or went that-away, or there were x number of others with him/her. I want to press charges. I don't feel good. I need an ambulance. I will answer questions later." (LE gets 48 hrs after an incident before they are required to answer questions, as I understand it.)

    My lawyer has told me that saying that to the police is saying too much. I've been told to just give the police my ID and CPL and give them any info needed to ID me. Then tell them I want my lawyer. Yes, I have his name and number in my wallet and burn into my brain.

    (1) I am a member of the Armed Citizen's Legal Defense Network. I believe in it's goals and think It's prudent to be a member.

    (2) Alas, despite alll my searching I have yet to find a self-defense lawyer in Albuquerque or it's environs.

    The guy who taught my PTC class here in MN has on the back of the business card he gave us the name and number of 4 lawyers he would recommend. Hopefully one will be available should the situation ever arise.

    If you passed the three tests in the law - In a place where you have a legal right to be, meeting force with equal deadly force, to stop an immediate forceable felony - you would only be asked for ID and perhaps your CCW. An immediate arrest is only possible if these three tests have not been clearly met - i.e. you shot somebody 5 times in the back of the head, and there was no indication that who you shot had any conceivable deadly force capability. Any questions about the event would be resolved later by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).

    Its not exactly free... you are paying for that lawyers and the unions services throughout your entire career. Your coworkers are also paying every paycheck, no matter if they use the services or not.

    No.

    If involved in an incident...I want the best defense....not just a defense.

    There was someone's signature that said: Your last public defender should not be referred to as "your attorney"
