Attorney FAQs

We are beginning a project to provide quick answers to most questions practicing attorneys have for personal injury, Labor Law, malpractice, and strict liability cases. They will be listed on this page in an outline format with links to the individual FAQ pages. Most FAQs will explain how to search the issue using the search feature of the New York Torts Weekly. Some will include specific case citations. Items without links are topics we are currently working on.

    • How to Subpoenaed Records for trial. Subpoenaed records is an essential tool for any trial.
