Thanks. So who would you recommend since it looks like you're an attorney and may have some insight into these types of cases?

Homey got censured. That doesn't 'happen all the time'.

Marc Victor for the win.

Lawyers are like foot fungus.....when you have it or need one it's never a good thing.

Good luck searching for a "good" one.

When I took my CCW class at Caswells the instructor recommended Tim Forshey should any of us ever need a lawyer,and wrote his name and number on the chalk board.
I think everyone, myself included wrote that number down.
I'm not sure what to think now?

He co-wrote Az gun owners guide with Korwin, I'm surprised that he wasn't listed on the gunlaws link?
I know that he served as a legal expert in the Harold Fish case, but from my understanding Harold kind of hurt himself...

I really heard good things about this guy:

Timothy A. Forshey P.C.
(602) 266-7667
TFORSHEY@ DMFLAW.COM
18 Years of Arizona Practice
"Shooters Who Are Lawyers"

I have his magnetic business card on the side of my refrigerator just in case

Not to knock Marc, I too have heard great things about him. But I've read elsewhere that it is a good idea to get a former DA or someone who used to be a prosecutor. The reasoning behind this was that they have connections with judges and somebody that might be prosecuting you. Marc has been known to be a "boat rocker" if you will. I mean, he got kicked off the bench as pro-tem judge. This is a hypothetical scenario of course but what if Marc is defending you and the judge really doesn't like the guy. We can sit here all day long and say that the judge will be above that but let's be honest...we're talking about lawyers and politicians here. (I can say that, I'm a political science and pre-law student) What are your thoughts on that?

I actually contacted Michael Anthony and he limits himself to expert testimony, consulting, writing and lecturing on firearms. He did recommend someone to me though Bruce Feder, I am going to talk to him as well.

For what it may be worth to you - I carry Tim Forshey's (see I_B's post listed above) business card in my wallet ... just in case. I've shot with Tim in IDPA "practice" matches in the past, and took a tactical carbine course where he was in attendance as a student. He has taught (still teaches?) AZ CCW classes in the Phoenix area. Tim is "one of us" - an avid shooter - in addition to being a good law practitioner. Call his office and have them send you a couple of his business cards - it makes no sense to be unprepared and scrambling for a lawyer's tel. no. when you most need it and your mind is elsewhere after "putting down" a bad guy or two. I'm sure Tim could even recommend an alternative lawyer if his caseload was too much (though I seriously doubt he would decline to lend his services to someone involved in a righteous shoot).


+1 on Tim. I took his CCW class. He did a great job and very enlightening. Since that day, I have carried one of his cards in my wallet. If there are two good things you definately need in this world, it's a good accountant and lawyer.

I'd call Tim Forshey. He taught the refresher course I took for CCW renewal years ago. Great guy.

Tim and I attended a Lethal Force Class with the only other guy that I'd call: Mas Ayoub.
