Becoming a Network Affiliated Attorney
The Network is grateful for the support of attorneys who own guns and are sympathetic to and knowledgeable about the legal challenges faced after even a legitimate and justifiable use of deadly force. A listing of the Network Affiliated Attorneys is made available only to Network members and is part of the password protected members-only portion of the website.
Affiliated attorneys provide their contact information so that members in their area can, if they wish, set up an appointment to get to know the attorney, make themselves familiar with the attorney's fee structure, and make sure their knowledge of local laws about guns and self defense is up to date or obtain answers to questions they may have about the laws and the courts. Members understand that they are financially responsible for any meeting they set up with an affiliated attorney, and most are simply relieved to find an attorney with whom they can frankly discuss topics bearing on carrying and potentially using a gun for self defense.
In addition, attorneys who are part of the Network Affiliated Attorneys list should expect that a Network member, a family member or trusted spokesperson for a member, or even the Network itself, may call the Affiliated Attorney in the event that a Network member is involved in a shooting in the affiliate's locale. Immediate needs the Affiliated Attorney can fill include advising the family about bail arrangements if necessary, accompanying the member during any police interviews, and arranging for a private investigator to perform an independent investigation of the shooting scene. To get these time-critical efforts underway, the Network immediately sends the member's attorney (or an attorney the Network obtains to represent the member) a substantial deposit against fees.
