My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to answer your legal question tonight.

A subpoena is the Court's formal way of notifying you that you are under a "court order" to either appear before the tribunal on a certain date OR to produce certain documentation to the requesting party OR both.

Generally, an "on call" subpoena is used for the former, that you must appear before a tribunal unless certain requirements are meant. In your situation, I would like to inquire into what exactly the subpoena is requesting. Only then can I give you an accurate answer to the question as it applies to you.
