Dear Madam and Sir:

A: There are a number of ways to find people for service, but sometimes it is difficult. An experienced injury attorney should have methods to find the defendant. There are a number of internet based "person finders" but these are typically only available to law enforcement or lawyers.

If you're trying to serve someone without the assistance of an attorney you might search for a constable or private investigator who can help for a fee.
