    Seattle Area Self Defense Shooting Attorneys

    Gang:

    It is often recommended that individuals who carry should have a relationship with an Attorney prior to any shooting incident. I have had several customers ask me if I knew of any in the Seattle area that they could contact. If any of you are familiar with any Attorney's that specialize in this area of law that you could recommend I would greatly appreciate it. You can feel free to email me at Earl@Bucks-Gun-Shop.com rather than publically post if you are more comfortable with that.

    Thanks.

    The Constitution of the United States does not grant rights to citizens; it limits the powers of government to infringe on the rights which have already endowed upon us by our Creator. One of those is the right to keep and bear arms, to defend our persons and property in any manner we see fit.

    I think their scope of practice is limited to "after" a shoot occurs, not the run of the mill constitutional violations of rights.

    ......but I could be wrong.
    Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat....Teddy Roosevelt

    +1 for Armed Citizens Network

    Correct... the focus is for shooting defenses.

    http://www.armedcitizensnetwork.org/

    Do You Worry About the Aftermath of a Self-Defense Shooting?
    The Network’s goal is to prevent miscarriages of justice through—
    Educating members about the legalities of using deadly force for self defense and how to interact with the criminal justice system after a shooting.
    An initial $10,000 fee deposit paid to the member's attorney by the Network if the member has been involved in a self-defense incident. The fee deposit gets the legal defense immediately underway, with representation during questioning, and arranging for an independent investigation of the incident.
    Network members are also eligible for additional grants of financial assistance from the Network's legal defense fund if they face unmeritorious prosecution or civil action after a self-defense incident occurring during their period of membership.
    The Network publishes a monthly journal online with columns and features focused on topics of interest to armed citizens. Click here for links to the latest edition as well as an archive of earlier journals, which are delivered as PDFs.
    Creating a nationwide network of attorneys and legal experts which the member can draw upon in the event of a self-defense shooting.
    If you possess a gun for defense of yourself and your family, we urge you to seriously consider joining the Network.

    As for the OP question - there are several in the Seattle area.

    As for making a relationship with one lawyer... why? Unless you want to put down a retainer ($250-$1500) and that is typically only good for a short time. It's not like you put a retainer down and it's good for a lifetime. Most likely only for 3-6 months at best but each does it a bit differently.

    But here's a start. You can always ask a lawyer... He may have a better idea of who is out there.
