    This topic has been ongoing for a while on another forum. I have found "lawyering up" is easier said than done. There is no problem in retaining a criminal defence attorney, but finding one that is somewhat "pro-firearm", and versed in SD/HD situations is a different matter. Since that type of case is rare, not all criminal defense attorneys may know the best way to defend you.

    Since some states have more liberal laws than others, everyones situation may be different in retaining the best attorney for their situation. It was suggested to attempt to find out which attorney(s) your local LE/Sheriff Dept. may use. (I did call a couple of attorney referral services and was told call after the fact, "attorneys don't deal in hypotheticals"). I hope to never need an attorney for any situation, but after the fact is not the time to do the "yellow page walk".

    Be safe.
    Be responsible for your own actions.

    [QUOTE=Bigpoppa48;1462007]I've had my CHP for about a year now, shortly after I received it I joined an organization called Concealed Handgun License Protection Plan(CHLPP) based out of Texas. They are suppose to provide a lawyer and pay for your legal expenses up through the Grand Jury Process.

    The process up through a Grand Jury shouldn't cost very much to begin with. I'd look into having an Attorney on a retainer.

    You don't say anything to the police other than, I was in fear of my life and I will not answer any questions at this time until I have an attorney assigned to me and who will be with me for any questioning. Then close your mouth and shut up.

    (IMO) If they're pushing you that hard to make a statement you had better get a lawyer now

I was told that even though it is legal to protect yourself and property in the state of Texas you will more than likely be sued in civil court by the bad guys family. Hence the reason for having a pre-paid lawyer in your back pocket.

    I basically would like to hear everyone's thoughts on this.
    In Texas, a defendant who uses deadly force that is justified under Chapter 9 of the Texas Penal Code is immune from civil liability for personal injury that results from the use of the defendants use of force or deadly force as appropriate.

    I have a policy from CHL Protection Plan to cover legal costs in case of being arrested/detained for questioning. I would ALWAYS lawyer up to protect my civil liberties.
