I can oversee the entire process, from answering questions about the commission to enforcing the subpoena in court. I am offering flat rates for certain out-of-state subpoena services.
I’ve written the leading articles for out-of-state subpoenas.
Many of your questions may be answered in my Georgia Bar Journal article, Best Practices for Issuing Subpoenas: Depositions of Georgia Residents in Cases Pending Out of State. This article provides the current framework for how to have the clerk issue a subpoena in Georgia for a case pending in another state, including how the Uniform Foreign Depositions Act comes into play.
If you need to know where to start for states besides Georgia, my more recent Georgia Bar Journal articles covers the other states. See Obtaining Out-of-State Evidence for State Court Civil Litigation: Where to Start?, Ga. Bar J., Oct. 2011, at 18.

I created an Out-of-State Subpoena Toolkit to answer more questions and provide a sample commission. In the nearly five years since my first article was published, I’ve continued helping out-of-state counsel issue, serve, and enforce out-of-state subpoenas. And when I learn something new in this niche practice, I write about it. You can read my out-of-state subpoena posts.
And if you need to enforce a federal subpoena, you may need local counsel. I can serve as local counsel for the Northern District of Georgia.
