Before doing anything yourself, find criminal defense attorneys and get help. Your strategy to fight 496a should be set by the attorney.
I agree with Mr. Shen.
Any criminal defense attorney should know how to subpoena evidence from third parties. And unless there is something unusual about your case, you should not need a lawyer who is an expert in civil litigation or business law.
call different attorneys in the area where your case will be heard until you find one with whom you are comfortable. Good luck!
As indicated by the others, your focus and worry about subpoenas is misplaced. Get an experienced criminal defense attorney, the rest are basic procedure and pleading issues. You are fighting a criminal charge, not a civil suit defense. Documents are not difficult to subpoena. If it is going to be a document intensive case, taken large amounts of time, expect to pay for that time. If serious about hiring counsel to help in this, feel free to contact me. Iíll be happy to help, using whatever defenses there may be, and have been doing this for over 30 years. .
