Process Serving

In short, serving process is not as simple as walking up to a guy in a suit, asking his name, handing him papers, and saying “You’ve been served.” Here in California, for example, there are various ways short of physical delivery to serve someone with a summons. But a subpoena has to be served personally to the person’s face, or a judge might not enforce it.

Your legal papers need to be served by someone who knows where the lines are, what the rules are, and when it’s permissible to brush by the secretary to get to the man in his own office.
