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

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.
