I admire at americans whose most powerful weapon is a lawyer. Did you ever jump over six-foot fence or participate in a street fight? Or experiment with black powder?
A single blackout, and both you and your lawyer are useless. Think over it, you might still have time to reconsider what's worth training -- bragging over how you'd call someone else to respond instead of you, someone not really wielding any power in slightly changed circumstances.
Think over what's vital to your life, and what would you do without mobile, electricity, or supermarket. Without right hand, or with severely hurting stomach. Being prepared to losing ephemeral warm stuff around you helps sometimes.
Good luck, an american.
