Out-Of-State Discovery – Letters Rogatory

At Gilman, McLaughlin & Hanrahan, LLP, experience has taught us that in today's interconnected world there is an increased need for pretrial discovery outside the state in which litigation is pending. Our Boston attorneys can efficiently help out-of-state attorneys obtain the necessary letters rogatory for discovery.

Skilled Witness Subpoena Counsel for Out-of-State Discovery

By statute, Massachusetts has developed a unique procedure to aid foreign counsel in obtaining such discovery. This out-of-state discovery procedure requires Massachusetts counsel to open a Massachusetts case and file the necessary applications and affidavits resulting in an order permitting the deposition and service on the Massachusetts resident or company. Our lawyers are experienced in obtaining the necessary order from the court to subpoena the witness in your action.

After the parties in your case have been notified of the deposition under the rules of your state, and letters rogatory or a commission has been issued by the judge in your case, our lawyers can usually obtain an order allowing a subpoena for you in as little as a few days.
