Do I Need a Lawyer if I Receive a Grand Jury Subpoena?

Quite often, you do. The only way to know for sure is to consult with a lawyer immediately. A subpoena for testimony or documents cannot be ignored. The prosecutor can go to court and start contempt proceedings against someone who has failed to obey the terms of a Grand Jury procedure. If you feel that a Grand Jury has issued an improper subpoena, then you need a lawyer for you to go to court to fight over the fairness and legality of the subpoena.
