    Default Firearms-friendly/self defense attorney in SW PA?

    Can anyone recommend a good firearms-friendly attorney who can handle a self-defense shooting, in SW PA area?

    No incident... just to have a name and number handy in case the need ever arises, it would be nice to know of somebody to actually call when saying, "I'm not answering anything until I speak with my lawyer".

    Good thread!

    I've been wondering about this very situation, myself. I'd like to be able to sit down with someone, have a consultation explaining what I could possibly need from them and, consequently, have someone to turn to in the event something terrible does happen.

    At a USPSA RO class that I attended. I met Fred Hummel. He was there helping out with the class. Turns out he is a Criminal Lawyer and an advid shooter.

    I asked if he would be available to be called if I ever needed a lawyer. He told me he would.

    He told me that he is from Punxsutawney and covers mostly down to Allegheny and Indiana County but would travel a bit further if needed.

    I got a card off of him and carry with me all the time now. I asked and he told me I could post this on here for anyone else that may be interested.

    Nice to have a Pro Gun Lawyer in the shadows just in case you need him.

    Oh, his first advice to all of us. Was to shut your mouth and say nothing to anyone till you see a lawyer. I believe we have discussed this on here and we all agree with this one.

    I may be the only guy who asked my lawyer this very question.

    His response was: if it becomes an issue, STFU, I'll show, and we'll bring in counsel if it's outside the firm's areas of practice or expertise if needed.

    Here is the fundamental problem I have with the premise of just carrying around a lawyer's name/number: if they don't know you, and if you end up cooling your heels in the holding tank, you may cool your heals for quite some time. The only way you will probably get a decent criminal defense and/or specialist legal beagle out of bed is if you are a frequent user thereof.

    Whereas my attorney's firm handles my tax/estate stuffs, business law needs, etc. I know if I ring their line they'll send in the troops when needed.

    YMMV, of course.
