New York City Subpoena Compliance Attorneys
Contact the Law Office of Mark A. Bederow, P.C. for Guidance
Any individual or business entity that receives a subpoena—whether it be a federal or state prosecutor, a grand jury, or an investigating agency—should consult with counsel before responding. A proper response to a validly served subpoena is required by law, and failure to respond properly could result in a finding of contempt, which may have serious penalties.
An experienced New York City criminal defense attorney can advise the recipient of a subpoena whether it was validly served, what the legal and proper response requires from the recipient, and whether any privileges apply that would allow for the non-production of requested items.
Furthermore, experienced counsel will usually be able to contact the issuing agency and get information about the purpose of the subpoena, including the critical information of whether the recipient is a target, subject, or witness in a criminal investigation.
For over 20 years, the Law Office of Mark A. Bederow, P.C. has represented many individuals and business entities that have received federal and state subpoenas in connection with criminal investigations.
