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.

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?

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.
