A: A subpoena is a court order requiring you to appear in court. The "issue" date is simply the day the subpoena was sent out by the court clerk. Somewhere on the document it tells you when and where to appear and perhaps what, if anything , you need to bring with you. Keep calling the attorney - he will know why you are being requested to come to court.
