My name is Marcelo. I have been practicing for 17 years. Was the subpoena issued to attend a court hearing, or some other event, such as a deposition? Assuming the subpoena was properly issued and served, then if for a court hearing, you should be able to ask the judge to "attach" that person and a sheriff's deputy can go pick that person up and bring him/her to court. If it was issued for some other event, such as deposition, then you should be able to set a hearing with the judge and have that person explain why he/she did not comply with the subpoena. The judge would have wide latitude in deciding how to handle such a situation.

I hope I have answered your question. If you require additional information, please let me know. If I have answered you, then please provide positive feedback so I can receive compensation. Thank you.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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.
