Q: I received a subpoena, regular mail to testify. Will I get in trouble if I dont go, since they cant prove I got this?

James G. Ahlberg answered on Apr 19, 2019

If you received the subpoena and a check for witness fees and mileage, you must go. If there no check was enclosed with the subpoena, you must either go or have an attorney appear on your behalf to ask that the subpoena be quashed for failure to pay the witness fee.
