What is a “Subpoena”?

A subpoena is a formal document commanding a person or an entity to either appear at a location and give testimony (a witness subpoena) or to produce documents identified within the subpoena (a subpoena duces tecum). A subpoena is issued in relation to an ongoing litigation matter and most often sent by an attorney. The court may also issue a subpoena in certain circumstances, most often when the person does not have legal representation. Subpoenas can be issued in both civil and criminal matters; however, this article only addresses civil matters.
