Customer Question
I'm trying to object...

I'm trying to object to a subpoena and need to know what specific grounds are allowed for objecting.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the subpoena was issued in?

California

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Yes. I'm completing the SubP-025, Notice to Consumer/Employee

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I'm a police officer and believe my employment info is privileged.

Hello! I am a licensed CA attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. So, under Section 1987.1 of the CCP, generally there aren't specific reasons outlined by law that allow you to submit a motion to quash this particular subpoena. Basically, you would just need to explain to the court why you believe that this subpoena should be quashed. Because there could be a thousand reasons why a person may not want to produce a particular document, statement, or thing, then it's really going to be up to you. If you believe that disclosing your employment information pursuant to the subpoena is going to violate your rights, then that's something that you can explain to the court. As a side note, you can explain that under Article 1 of the California Constitution, you have a right to privacy. Whether the argument works is going to be up to the judge and I couldn't predict for you, but basically you would just need to organize and outline your reasons and it submitted to the court.

Before you rate your opinion of my service, do you have any other questions for me?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
