Have you been served with a Georgia subpoena in a civil-litigation case?
Even if you are not a party to the case, the parties involved can serve subpoenas for testimony and documents on nonparties. So if you are served with a subpoena, don’t ignore it.
Whether the subpoena is requesting your presence at a deposition or asking you to produce documents, you are entitled to object to the subpoena under appropriate circumstances. Was the subpoena validly served? Is it seeking privileged, confidential, or trade-secret information that you need to protect? Is it too costly to respond to the subpoena? An attorney can help protect confidential information and focus the court’s attention on any unduly burdensome requests.
For subpoenas that request your attendance at a deposition, you are permitted to have an attorney attend with you. What type of testimony is the party seeking? Is any party attempting to impose liability on you? I can prepare you for the deposition and can attend the deposition with you.
I can help you object to the subpoena, but any objections must be done timely and under the proper procedure.
Whether you received the subpoena as an individual, a corporation, or an employee of a corporation, if it is a Georgia state-court subpoena or a federal subpoena issued in the Northern District of Georgia, I can help. You can read my posts on nonparty subpoenas and read about what I will ask you about the subpoena.
