    However by chance, is there a good lawyer on here that I can talk to about obtaining some evidence through a subpoena? I have called several upon several lawyers that will not help me and all I need is someone to get me the documentation for now so I can see what my options are.

    1) No lawyer worth consulting will offer legal advice non a public forum.

    2) Subpoenas are issued as part of a lawsuit, not just because you want to know some info. Do you have a suit filed?

    If they will not help, their is a good reason, that said you could call the prosecutors office, talk with their investigator, and hire him or some office he may recommend as a private firm.

    Many of these guys do work on the side, be ready to pay a retainer, and sign a contract.

    We use them for skip tracing.

    I'm no lawyer but if your after public information you might be able to request it through the freedom of information act requests or FOIA request.

    In today's world with all the privacy laws one has to be careful that it doesn't come back and bite you.

    I noticed people are apprehensive to say what they're actually seeking evidence for, I also hate to be naming names on a public forum

    Maybe you just don't understand what a subpoena is, and that is why no one will help you?

    A subpoena is a legal process. I dealt with them just about every day the last ten years of my career as a designated custodian of records in a police agency. Every one had an attorneys signature and a court seal affixed and was part of a criminal case or civil litigation. I can't recall ever receiving one with a non-lawyers name attached and a court seal. I'd start with a call to your court clerk's office and see if they can explain the process involved to you.

    It sounds what you're after is a subpoena duces tecum (a subpoena to produce records), so I'd do some research on that term, too.
