    Do you have an attorneys contact information in case something happens?

    If you were involved in a SD shooting, do you know someone you would call for legal representation? Do you think this should be a part of carrying a firearm? Its a simple question but if you dont know, I think its too late once something has actually happens.

    I guess I should, but frankly, I don't.

    Very good point. I need to look up one and put it in the phone. You never know. Is there a list somewhere with all the gun friendly attorneys in the country.

    In the blue banner in this Forum on top of the page under "Forum Help & Extras" there is a list of experienced CCW attorneys, set up by state and city.

    Absolutely! And my wife knew his name off the top of her head, too.

    We also know that we need to clam up completely, except to point out evidence and perhaps say something like "I was afaid he was going to kill me!"

    We got the name of this lawyer from the CCW instructor at a local range, and verified with another person from this forum (thanks, Shank1911) that he was a good choice. I called the lawyer's office to see how it worked, and was told that an initial meeting at this point was not needed - call if I get in trouble. Your results may vary, of course, but it seems prudent to call and verify the number if nothing else.

    I do and I do!

    That whole deal of an "attorney being appointed" isn't what most people think!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    I'd call my boss and have her schedule me onto her morning court appearances, and have her contact the clerk's office and the judge to inform them I'm going to need a continuance for my own clients.

    Ashamed to say I don't. Ashamed because yes, I know it is nec. and have been meaning to reacquire contact, but have not "gotten around to it".

    Two times in the past, I have had. But in over 20 years of carrying (nearer 30 being armed for SD at home), I've lost contact with the two attorneys I'd set myself up with at various times.

    Thanks for the reminder!

    Oh yes. Took a Sharpie and wrote his number on the back of my CW permit. Will tell the officer my name, address and "i'd like to speak to my attorney".

    Yes I do. I have a criminal defense lawyer card in our wallet and purse and his number in all our cell phones.
