Service of process is something that every lawyer learns about in college. However, what you may not discuss is the importance of hiring process servers to help your firm. Here are a few facts about service of process to think about before you look for a service to hire.
- Every state has its own regulations – If you are going to hire a national process server company, make sure they are NAPPS members so you can be confident that they know the laws in your state.
- The first process servers were free – The problem is that they were sheriffs. Law enforcement doesn’t always have time to carry out this service. That means you may have to wait if you intend to get your papers served through the local sheriff’s department. On the other hand, there are rare cases where the delivery will be too dangerous for anyone else to do it.
- Your modern process servers may provide additional legal services – It is increasingly common for law firms to outsource more than just service of process. Therefore, you may be able to find a service that also handles document copying and scanning as well as pretrial support and document retrieval.
