I think everyone needs to be careful when signing up for an insurance, or pre-paid legal service agreement. I was looking into various companies and when I thought I found the right one I called them and asked for the names of the attorneys that they would contact to represent me if I were involved in a self defense shooting situation. They were able to provide me with only a single name. When I googled that attorney, I found he was a bankruptcy attorney cleaning extensive experience in wills and trusts. Not a single mention of any criminal defense background or training. Needless to say I did not sign up with that national firm. But based on the above comments I will be looking into Armed Citizens Defense Network, Inc.
With the ACLDN, you are not obligated to use their affiliated attorneys. If you have a preferred attorney, they will work with him/her.
Looks like they only pay up to $10k? I was reading their FAQ. Also says you may qualify for a grant from the fund, but doesn't say limitations or if you are guaranteed. I am going to work up some questions and give them a lengthy email next week.
