Subpoena service is one of the many aspects of a private investigator’s career. When a person or organization is needed in court to produce necessary evidence for a legal proceeding, a subpoena will be issued by the court. Defendants, who do not want to become part of the case, try to avoid being served papers. When this happens, it’s best to hire a professional for a variety of reasons.

Locating People

Private investigators can obtain information on the whereabouts, identity, or credibility of a person or company. They have access to databases that normal people do not have. These professionals are also trained to piece together clues to help track individuals down. They can use public records to fill in missing information and uncover a new name, address, telephone number, and Social Security number.


The investigative knowledge that a private investigator obtains in his or her first month of training is more than regular people will learn in a lifetime. It takes a simple mistake to ruin an investigation or give away a disguise. You don’t want all of the hard work you input in finding someone to be ruined because of inexperience.

Private investigators use a variety of investigative techniques in order to first find the defendant. They then use another set of techniques in order to catch them so as to serve the papers. Whether the person is to be subpoenaed is a witness or the defendant, the private investigator would ensure that he or she knows the routine of the person through surveillance.

Legal Compliance

Each area has its own set of laws for private investigations. You must meet all legal requirements before you begin following someone. One slip of the law, and you can face steep fines and possible jail time. Private investigators are licensed in most states and are rigorously tested in order to be issued a license.
