Title: Process Of Service
Post by: 🍟💵🌲🍥 on July 01, 2016, 10:17:21 PM
I normally use people for this but feel cheap right now. I know that clients cant serve their own papers, but can lawyers on record serve them for the case they are representing? I kind of want to look a certain SOB in the eyes is a part of this, no lie there.

Any lawyers here ever do it, or know the rules on it?

Just check your state rules, should be easy.

I've never heard of an attorney serving their own papers, though. I went to small claims court once, and even then I had to have a third party serve. Seems like there are way too many potential problems with an attorney serving. I mean, the last thing on the world you want is some sort of confrontation between you and the defendant.

Good point on the why not to do it. As to the "if" I agree there too, just was hoping someone here had real life experience with it was all.

But thanks as always, you always give good advise. Kudos.
