A subpoena has to do with getting you to appear at a legal proceeding - usually civil but it could be criminal. Are you aware of any proceedings that you might be called as a witness for? There is not really one central agency that serves a subpoena although many people use the local county Sheriff's department which has a division that serves legal documents, but there are many private outfits that also serve legal documents. it would really help if you could remember something about the document, was it civil or criminal? A warrant for your arrest is normally reserved for when you don't show up to a proceeding that involves you and being charged criminally. In a civil matter the Judge can be asked to send a Sherriff to find you and bring you to court if you don't show up when you were supposed to. It's really up to the Judge. If you are worried about a warrant you or anyone can call the police and inquire for you if there is a warrant out for your arrest. Most people would have an attorney call for them. Do you even remember what day the subpoena was for, like what day you were supposed to appear in court? If you know the court date you can go to the court and ask them what proceedings are scheduled for that date. But not all proceedings are held at the court so that may or may not solve your problem. http://www.portlandlegalservices.com
