If I get a subpoena, do I have to come to court?

Yes, a subpoena is a court order to appear. If you are scheduled to be at work, please coordinate with your employer. They are required to allow you time off to appear for a subpoena. If you have a medical issue, please contact our office.

Ignoring a subpoena does not resolve a case, but can prolong it.
