What is a Subpoena

A subpoena or a witness summons is a writ issued by a government agency, most often a court, to compel testimony by a witness or production of evidence under a penalty for failure. 

We Issue & Serve Minnesota Subpoenas

We are authorized to issue and serve Minnesota Subpoenas & Minnesota Foreign Jurisdiction Subpoenas. 

Subpoenas in civil cases are issued under Rule 45 of the MN Rules of Civil Procedure. There must be an existing case where a hearing, trial or deposition is scheduled before a subpoena can be issued.

A subpoena for attendance at a deposition to be taken in Minnesota for an action pending in a foreign jurisdiction may be issued by the court administrator or by an attorney admitted to practice in Minnesota.

Subpoena Witness Fees

 We’ve got you covered!


The Minnesota District Courts charges a minimal fee for issuing a Minnesota Administrative Subpoena, and a witness is entitled to witness fees at the time of service of the subpoena.


Ask us about advancing your court filing fee and witness fees for attendance and mileage allowed by law to secure your witness.

Instructions about witness fees for the Minnesota Subpoena can be found on the third page of the MN Subpoena.

Our Clients Say it Best

Very helpful and welcoming service. I am an attorney in California and used Legal Process MN to serve a California subpoena. They made the process easy and were transparent about the amount of time that it would take and how much it would cost. I will be returning to work with them in the future and recommend them to all my colleagues”.
