Obtaining Medical Records with a Subpoena in New York

Notification of Opposing and Co-Counsels in New York
We will take care of notifying the other counsel involved in your case. The notification will be either faxed or mailed via certified mailer. When faxed, we use a National Institute of Standards and Technology approved SHA-256 hash algorithm to ensure the integrity of the fax message.
An audit log on the notification can be provided if needed to resolve any dispute around possible objections on a subpoena.
