Service of Process and Subpoenas in Civil Lawsuits

Wednesday, June 15, 2016 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Do the rules surrounding service of process make you nervous? Could you use a refresher? The BBA has got you covered!

Join us for an overview of how to correctly serve civil process in state and federal lawsuits. Our panelists will focus on the service of the summons and complaint, but will also go over the service of deposition and trial subpoenas for documents and/or the attendance of a witness. Join us to learn the following:

·               Who may serve a summons or subpoena;

·               What is required as proof of service;

·               When a summons must be served by (and what to do if service cannot be completed on time);

·               Where an individual or entity may be served both in and out of the Commonwealth;

·               Why a court may find process to be defective or in need of amendment; and,

·               How Federal rules differ from Massachusetts rules for service of process and subpoenas.
