Caldwell, NJ asked in Consumer Law, Traffic Tickets and Communications Law for New Jersey

Q: How can a pro se litigant subpoena phone records from Cricket Wireless?

Cricket Wireless phone records are not available to customers. Client needs detailed phone call records for one date to help fight a cell phone ticket in court. Client does not have legal representation, and will represent herself in court. How can she get this information from Cricket Wireless (subsidiary of AT&T)?

Can Client issue a subpoena as a pro se defendant? How can this be done?

A: That is not your problem as you do not need to be using your phone to get a cell phone ticket, just holding it for example is enough unless you fall under one of the exceptions. A pro se will rarely ever win a ticket in court as even most lawyers have a low success rates for cell phones tickets. If you want to win hire the best lawyer and pray you also get lucky because that is what you will need.
