This guy has been very pro-2A in Sacramento for many years. If he can't help you he'll tell you who can.

You don't need a good pro-2A attorney.

You need a good criminal defense attorney. His/her stance on the Second Amendment would be irrelevant to his/her ability effectively to defend you (or whoever) if charged.

Their union usually provides the attorney.

This is the right answer. Any good criminal defense atty can be brought up to speed on gun issues.

That's like saying any programmer can be brought up to speed on COBOL. It might be true but it's still a lot cheaper and you get better results using a programmer that doesn't need to be "brought up to speed."

But the gun issues are not technical in such cases, and the defense would largely be the same whether a knife, gun, or a pipewrench were used.

In such instances, a good local attorney that knows assault/self-defense matters and "the local lay of the land" with local judges and DAs can be very helpful. Furthermore, travel expenses add up for an out-of-area lawyer.

Cases based on technical RKBA issues are much different. If you've shot someone entering your house, your big issue is not whether that handgun was Rostered, it was if the shoot was good, period.
