    The basic prmeis of this thred is to establish repport with a person that has been sucessful in defending those who use deadly force to protect life.

    I am awaiting my CCW permit, as some of you may have seen in my post reguarding taking the AZ CCW class. I am looking to find a Pro Gun Rights Lawyer in NE Arizona with prior experience in Criminal and Civil Law. Due to lots of readding on my part, of books and articles by respected sources in the Gun community like M. Ayoob and others, I have gleand a few insights into the aftermath of using deadly force. I would very much like to get things squared away before ever using a deadly weapon to defend myself/loved ones or those not capable of defending themself.

    If any of you have experience finding a good Lawyer for these matters, weather or not your experience is/was based in Arizona I would appriciate your input.

    As Robert Redford once said in Spy Game, "When did Noah build the Ark?"... "He built it before the storm!"

    In situations like this I recommend Marty Hayes organization "Armed Citizens Network" at http://www.armedcitizensnetwork.org/
    They can give you some great advice and guidance.

    I continue to monitor any self-defense shootings I learn about, particularly in my home state or in states where I am likely to travel, and record the contact information concerning any attorney who successfully defends the shooter.

    I carry that info in my wallet and have the appropriate phone numbers on my speed dial just in case.

    Good idea. Doctors, lawyers and bankers are best known before you need them.

    mmm....One of the problems you might have is that things work differently on the res. Whoever you consult, make sure to address this.

    I'd contact Marc Victor and Michael Anthony, both in Phoenix, and ask for references. Both of them are heavily involved in the CCW world and train the trainers.

    Lots of rocks in AZ, I am sure you can find an attorney under one of them.

    The instructor forthe CCW class told us AZ permits were recognized by the White Mountain Apache tribe and Navajo tribe. Just not allowed to carry in the casino.

    That is what I was told however, I am more inclined to agree with you as a safety precaution.

    It's a good idea to have an attorney's contact information with you. I actually have two business cards for an attorney who specializes in firearms work, one on either side of my permit.

    Devil's Advocate:

    Could consulting an attorney at this stage ever be seen as suspicious, if you were to ever have to defend yourself in court? I know drug dealers and other criminals around here have "prepaid" legal services through some slimy defense attorney and, to me, that gives the appearance of someone who is anticipating the inevitable need for counsel. This almost has the same feel to it. The primary difference being that a pro 2A attorney might not be quite as slimy :cool:

    Scorpions glow in the presence of ultraviolet light.
    Attorneys glow in the presence of money.

    When one is arrested, is one allowed access to a business card in one's wallet? How about when one is "detained for questioning"?

    If I have a lawyers card in my wallet, would it do me any good if I was in a situation where I needed it?
