Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
If you have not been served with a subpoena, then you have no legal duty to go to court and testify as a witness in the attorney's case. He is simply trying to scare and bully you into voluntarily coming since he couldn't get you served.
So you can tell him to go pound sand and have a fun day in court..
No, he has no power to do anything regarding contempt... That is a legal decision that a judge makes if you are under an order to appear and you don't. There is no order to appear here that has been legally served on you.
And you are very welcome. Happy to help any time with this attorney who is apparently a jerk.
