I've posted before about how retainers are not used by any criminal defense lawyers I know for this sort of thing. I mean, a retainer is taken and held in anticipation of debt that will be incurred, and no one actually plans to have a shooting case come up. Most criminal defense lawyers work on a fee-per-case basis, not an hourly rate, and I don't know of any who would take money from a client who does not have a serious expectation of being charged in the short term.
However, almost any criminal defense lawyer would be delighted to meet with you and to give you his card to stick in your wallet should the need arise (hey, when your friend gets a DWI or you need a will drawn up, chances are that you'll pull out that card, too - it's totally worth his time to talk to you for a few minutes and get his name out). I've done other posts on how to select a defense lawyer (search on my name and "lawyer" here and on many other boards) - don't worry too much about the retainer, since I'd be shocked if you were asked to put one down.

Help in Iowa
I've checked the CCW list in help and extras area and found nothing listed in Iowa. Much like my weapon, I hope to never need it, but when I need it, I need it very badly! Anyone know of a 2A attorney in Iowa? Thanks.

Here's the results from a Google Search for Criminal Attorney's in Des Moines, IA. You'll have to research from there.
Copy and paste the link below into your browser. For some reason it didn't "Hyperlink".

This post is going into my Palm Treo. Great advice and a good place to keep it as a reminder. I will also add it to the details in my attorney's contact information section.
