Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
My apologies but the answer is 'no'. Requesting records via a subpoena is part of the process of discovery, which occurs in the 'pre-trial' phase of a lawsuit or prior to a hearing over criminal charges. Subpoena without a lawsuit won't be granted because the subpoena shows why that specific request for documents is important for that specific case, and why that information is relevant.
Sincerely,
Dimitry, Esq.
