Subpoena Process

Receiving Your Subpoena

Upon receipt of your subpoena, please call the District Attorney's Office at the number listed on your subpoena to confirm your court appearance. If your telephone number(s) or address has changed, please notify the District Attorney's Office as soon as possible so we can notify you of schedule changes.

Going to the Courthouse

Your subpoena is an order from the court for 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please be prepared to be at the court house for several hours to all day. We cannot release you until the judge releases you.

Please bring your subpoena with you.


Due to increased security precautions in the Oklahoma County buildings, please do not bring unnecessary personal items, especially pocket knives, scissors, tools, weapons of any kind, tote bags, briefcases or backpacks.


There is no free parking downtown. Most parking lots and garages are approximately $7 to $10 a day. The further away from the court house you park, the less expensive it is. Our office cannot pay for your parking and we cannot get a parking ticket dismissed.

We do not recommend parking at a meter, but if you do, please be mindful it is unlawful to park at the same meter all day and you can be ticketed for doing so.
