If you refuse to accept service in that manner, you need to advise the party and/or the lawyer who served you that you do not accept email service. I always recommend my clients accept email service of a subpoena for an...Read more »

You have provided insufficient information. Just because you do two hours or more of legal research does not give you sufficient understanding of the law to know better than the lawyers you have consulted.
