    Lawyers

    Ok, we all know by now that if you happen to be involved in a SD shooting that you shouldn't talk to the police without your lawyer present.

    I was wondering, how many of you have taken the time to find a lawyer and program the phone number into your cellphone.

    I would think the last thing you want to be doing after shooting someone is trying to find a lawyer while the police are trying to question you.

    There are a couple lawyers around here who have their cards handed out during CCW classes. The front is their typical business card info, the back is a checklist of the only 5 or so things you should tell law enforcement until your attorney arrives. A lot of guys around here carry those cards in their wallets.

    Specific to your question, I have not programmed a lawyer into my phone.

    Consider the Armed Citizens' Legal Defense Network. While currently it does not appear the ACLDN has any affiliated attorneys in SD, it might be worth asking the founders of the group.

    There is also The Shooter's Bar, which is a list of pro-RKBA attorneys.

    - LOL. I should have typed out self defense instead of having people believe I was in South Dakota. Thanks for the links.

    Your siggy clearly shows CT, so why would anyone believe you were from SD? Oops.

    Just to throw a wrinkle into this discussion...

    How fast could you get a lawyer on the line, tell him what's going on, get his price and get that lawyer his money so he's going to move?

    Unless you are family, a friend I'd help with a body, or fall into the "smoking hot and available" catagory...

    As an attorney, I'm going to want to get paid before I do more than make a few phone calls on the case.

    How fast can you raise about $5,000 to kick things off?

    My point is that the lawyer's contact info is useless without means to hire him.

    in my county, whose number I have saved in cell, offers free initial consultation. As with all things, some lawyers are better than others.

    Know what an initial consultation actually consists of?

    Coming in to talk to the lawyer so you can tell him your problem and he can tell you what it's going to cost to fix it.

    Yes in fact, I do. The cop teaching our CCW class handed out a card for a PD and Criminal lawyer with a 24hour emergency hotline on it (his cell) and explained that he'd answer 24/7.

    I haven't called their office to discuss, but perhaps I should.
