Statewide Uniform Subpoena Form
Pursuant to Rules 2-510, 3-510, 4-265, and 4-266, the Maryland Judiciary implemented a uniform, statewide subpoena form, effective July 1, 2015. To ensure the required seal and the appropriate clerk's signature appears on each subpoena, separate versions of the form are provided for each circuit and district court. The content of all versions is the same.
The subpoena forms are also available to registered users on the MDEC portal. Attorneys may register via https://maryland.tylerhost.net. For questions regarding the registration process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions regarding court proceedings should be directed to the appropriate court.
Self-represented litigants, MUST obtain the paper form from the appropriate court. Attorneys can still obtain the paper form from the appropriate court.
NOTE: A subpoena may be served ONLY within 60 days after it is issued. If not served within the 60-day period, it must be reissued for service.
Any misuse of a subpoena may result in an appropriate sanction from the court, including an award of a reasonable attorney's fee and costs, the exclusion of evidence obtained as a result of the misuse, and reimbursement of any person inconvenienced for time and expenses incurred.
