The lawyer can decide whether to hire a private process server or

engage the services of the local sheriff's department to serve the warrant

on the defendant named therein. (The cost for sheriff's service is around $12

but likely 5 to 10 times that amount for the private process server.)

A timeframe of about a month for the sheriff's department to serve the

papers might be considered about average for this particular task (my opinion).
