Subpoenas for Phone Records

Phone Records

 

The chart below contains the contact information for the Subpoena Compliance Centers for various cell phone companies and social media networks.

 

Please be aware of the NC State Bar 2010 Formal Ethics Opinion 2 (April 16, 2010) which finds a lawyer may not serve an out of state health care provider with an unenforceable North Carolina subpoena and may not use documents produced pursuant to such a subpoena. It is likely that the State Bar would make a similar determination regarding service of NC subpoenas on other out-of-state offices.

 

To comply with this ethics opinion, an attorney should consider serving the subpoena on the NC registered agent or local office capable of accepting service and then sending a courtesy copy of the subpoena to the out-of-state Subpoena Compliance Center. It will probably be helpful to explain to the local office that you are serving them to comply with the Rules of Professional Conduct and are also sending a courtesy copy to the out-of-state Subpoena Compliance Center. The courtesy copy should clearly state that it is a courtesy copy (no legal effect). The NC Secretary of State maintains a searchable database of all corporations registered in North Carolina.
