Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
There's no law that prevents serving someone with a subpoena at work. If you're calling the person as a witness you want to give favorable testimony, though, consider whether they'll be embarrassed by being served at work and whether it's possible to have them served at home (assuming they're not avoiding your subpoena).
When you're looking for contracts and other documents, they have 30 days to produce them from the date the subpoena is served. You're not able to specify a date before that, but you can specify the place to which you want the documents delivered. If you'd rather inspect/copy them yourself, then you can state on the subpoena that they must make the documents available at the location you specify on a given date - it just has to be 30 days out.
