Representing innocent citizens forced to defend themselves against a violent attack is a relatively rare occurrence for most defense attorneys. However, laws permitting citizens to carry firearms, combined with more Americans accepting responsibility for their own protection, allow the prediction that incidents of legitimate self-defense will increase in the future.


Once you have prevailed in a fight

 for your life, the battle may just

be beginning. Criminal charges

may be filed against you.

Civil lawsuits may be brought seeking damages for injuries or death resulting from your use of deadly force.
At a time like this, you need

a professional representing you

who understands what you have experienced, and how to deal

with the legal issues that you now confront. You should select your self-defense attorney in advance of ever needing the legal services.
