    I would rather have a good, experienced lawyer and spend the night in jail rather than using as a primary selection criteria a guy who will come at 3:00AM in exchange for a retainer.

    I started my search with the former president of the NRA (who resides locally,) who provided me a chain of good contacts. As others have said, a criminal defense attorney is the way to go rather than just a lawyer who likes guns.

    Remember, for every innocent man in jail there is an incompetent attorney that was his advocate.

    Just concluded my Utah CC permit training, successfully I might add, and one of the key points was to have an attorney beforehand. His advice is don't say a word until your attorney is present. I have a new phone # in my phone!

    Ask at your gun shop. They know which lawyers shop there and are gun friendly.

    And how do you think that attorney you call "Good & experienced" got that way?

    Humm...

    Excellent Thread: In fact I’ve been thinking about this same subject long before seeing this topic. I plan on taking Bruce’s advice and start looking. Also, the suggestion to consult with a local LEO is excellent. Luckily, I know one I can ask without raising eyebrows. I mean, can you imagine how some overzealous LEO may react when you ask: ...who is good if I shoot someone?
    Ok, I realize we would approach the topic more diplomatically, but LEO’s are suspicious by trade.
