Long story short: I am a professional who works with children. One of the children on my caseload is in foster care and there is an adoption trial coming up. I was unfortunately subpoenaed to appear in court for this trial to provide information. I have never received a subpoena before and will be missing a weeks worth of work (Unpaid) due to this trial. I read that it is recommended I get a lawyer. Does anyone have any insight or advice? I am unable to speak with my supervisors about this at this time as they are all on vacation and unresponsive to my emails. And I am not financially in a place where I can hire a lawyer. Any help, experience or advice is appreciated!
