Interstate Deposition Subpoena Service provides a unique service to facilitate the process of issuing and serving deposition subpoenas to witnesses who are located in foreign states where they are beyond the subpoena power of the trial state.

Through our network of local attorneys and professional process servers, we provide prompt and effective service of out-of-state witnesses in every state.

We take the mystery and guesswork out of this process so that your staff may concentrate on more pressing needs at hand.
