A: If you were not subpoenaed to appear, then you cannot be punished for refusing to appear, assuming you are not a party to the lawsuit. You mention that your attorney is telling you to go, which makes me think you are a party, however. If that's the case and you fail to appear, then the attorney taking your deposition can ask the judge to require you to pay for the cost of a second deposition and the cost of issuing a subpoena to compel your attendance.
