I did a search on the subject and came up empty handed; my apologies if there is a thread somewhere else – please reroute if needed.
I became a member of the ASDI long time ago for the reassurance in knowing I had someone in my corner ready to impart legal advice in case I was involved in a self-defense situation. Even though the need to call their “emergency 1-800 number” never materialized, carrying their “emergency instruction card” in front of my drivers license / ID card on my wallet (I imagined I would see the ASDI card and remember my rights before giving a statement) and a copy attached to the dashboard of my vehicle (as a daily reminder when I saw it in front of me before starting to drive), really helped remember my right to remain silent, and to be represented by an attorney. I also liked the fact that I could memorize a “1-800 number” and – in theory – have access to an attorney, versus trying to find one on a location/county/jurisdiction I wasn’t familiar with.
I was wondering if anyone on the forums ever received from ASDI any type of legal advice/representation over a self-defense situation; how hard was it to contact them; and/or if you tried to contact them and never actually got through/received a reply/help/advice/etc… If you had to contact an attorney in a jurisdiction you weren’t familiar with, it will be enlightening – to say the least – to know the process you had to go through/how difficult was it/what was the outcome.
For those of you who have never heard of ASDI, heres a link to their website:
Also, visit their “Hot Articles”; I did find their material useful from time to time in justifying the need to carry. Their link:
