    Moving to Washington

    I'm looking at moving to Kitsap County area in WA in the next couple of months and need a little help shopping. I would like to find an Attorney that has experience or specializes in 2nd amendment rights & self defense that I can put business card in my wallet. Can anyone give a recommendation?


    I have already learned my lesson about needed an Attorney and not knowing who to call, and i don't want to go there again!

    This may be a bit early.. but welcome to Washington State..

    Sorry.. can't help with a name.. but I am sure someone will respond with what you are looking for.
    Lets Unite and REMIND our Government that WE are the source of their authority and that WE demand our Rights be returned, Unabridged, Non-infringed, without denial or disparagement. The faults of a few, reflect badly on many, I therefore do not suggest anyone support WAC. My EDC is either a H&K USP .40 or a Taurus 689 .357 filled with Snake Loads

    I seemed to recall that a guy I knew in college was practicing firearms related law over on the wet side of the state. Did a quick Google search and confirmed my recollection. That attorney is Dennis Brislawn and one place you can find him on-line is here: http://www.guntrustswa.com/ Don't know if his practice would provide the sort of "on call" type of service I suspect you are looking for but, as I always tell people when I make a referral, if he can't help you ask him who he would recommend. Oh, yeah, welcome to Washington (even if you are moving to the wet side :-) ).

    If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege.

    I concur the SAF is a great resource for finding a lawyer: http://www.saf.org

    I've also read a lot about a guy named Mark Knapp, in Federal Way. FOrtunately, I've not had to hire him, but here's his website in case you want to do some checking:

    I carry the following two in my wallet, they are associated together. Lizanne spoke at our 2nd Amendment rally in Olympia last year, she is awesome when it comes to rights. David is an excellent 2A attorney.

    Some people even get extra insurance to cover themselves in a self defense suit.

    I live on the dry side too, so no help here...but may I say, I would think after 40+ years of OC, having a lawyer available to call is not a bad idea, but I would think generally unnecessary here. For the most part, I think most (not all) WA LEO's know the law and abide by it...Yes, I know there have been some that have been proned out for nothing more than a legal carry...but if you think about it...that is very rare here.

    Another thing we have here is if a DA decides to prosecute on firearms law, he better be pretty sure of where he is. If he looses his governmental juristiction gets to pay you and your atturney (without an extra law suit)
