I get asked a lot of questions about Private Investigations techniques, tools, training - and even interesting stories! I also get asked questions about my C.L.E.E.T. Certified Training. It is my hope that this blog will instruct you in topics relating to the field of private investigation. It is also my hope that the topics and content you find here will help you navigate some of today's safety issues.

Being Served a Subpoena

Being Served a Subpoena

I recently served a person a subpoena for a pending lawsuit that had been filed against them. It always amazes me that some people when they are served a subpoena become hostile. This particular person was inside his vehicle and would not open his doors, so I laid the subpoena on the hood of his vehicle and walked away as the person in the vehicle gave the ole one finger salute. This person then got out of his vehicle and told me to come back and tell him what I laid on his vehicle. He then said he was going to kick my butt and I did not know who he was. Obviously, he thought he was important to the world. I did not return to explain the subpoena and I did not bother with his pseudo-position in the world.

It is not process server’s fault that a lawsuit has been filed against you. A process server is just doing a job for the court. I have been served many subpoenas in the course of my law enforcement career and as a private investigator. I have never become upset with the process server, that person has nothing to do with the filed lawsuit. Once I get a subpoena I contact the attorneys involved who I am working for and let them handle the subpoena request.

If you are ever served a subpoena remember the process server is only a messenger. If you want to get upset with someone, look in the mirror and yell at yourself.
