A subpoena is an order to produce yourself and/or tangible items in a very specific legal setting, and therefore it is imperative that you take it seriously. Failure to comply with a subpoena can have serious consequences. You could even be held in contempt. If you have been subpoenaed, you want to contest it if you believe that it is invalid or unreasonable. If appearing at the time and location stated on the subpoena is a great inconvenience to you, you may be able to reschedule your appearance to a better suited time. It is best to contact an attorney to go over your specific situation in order to properly respond to the subpoena.
