Search warrants and subpoenas can create significant distress for individuals and businesses alike.

Know Your Rights — And Obligations

Search Warrants: An individual or a business can be served with a search warrant by either state or federal authorities. If you are served with a search warrant, carefully review its contents to determine what law enforcement is looking for and where they are permitted to search. You are not required to talk to the police or answer any questions while the warrant is being executed. Similarly, when a business is served with a search warrant, employees are not required to answer questions. However, interfering with a legal search, or attempting to destroy documents or other evidence can lead to criminal charges for obstruction of justice.

State and Federal Subpoenas: Subpoenas may be used to collect documents, compel testimony, or collect other information from an individual or business. If you or your business has been served with a subpoena, it is imperative to seek legal counsel before responding. An experienced attorney can identify when a subpoena merits an objection, identify privileged information, and craft an appropriate response.
