Working with Attorneys Who Value Quality Process Service
Are you looking for an attorney to help you with a legal matter? There are a lot of things to consider when choosing an attorney, but one of the things that people do not think about is process service. Process service is an important part of your case, and it is vital that your attorney uses a reputable private process server. Here are some things you should talk to your attorney about before making a decision to work with them.
Who Will Serve Papers?
You should ask any attorney you are considering hiring who they use for process service and who will serve the papers. If they are using a local private process service company that hires multiple servers, you should make sure that all of their process servers are registered with the courts and knowledgeable in proper and quality process service. If your attorney relies on the sheriff’s department to serve their papers, it could cause delays in your case.
Quality and Proper Service
You should ask your attorney what happens if process service is not handled correctly. Sometimes a private process server might make a mistake, either accidentally or intentionally, that results in improper service. Improper service can delay or completely derail your case. Make sure that your attorney has a backup plan in place for what to do if quality service doesn’t happen for any reason.
Finding Defendants and Respondents
When someone needs to be served, it is possible that they won’t be able to be found easily. Some people will intentionally try to hide when someone might be filing legal action against them. Your attorney should have private process servers in their employ that has the means to locate hard to find individuals.
