Do you then send their attorney one copy of the document (for everyone) or are you required to serve each person and company one each in the same envelope (even though there is only one attorney representing everyone)?
First of all, it is not clear what "document" you are serving, nor is it clear whether this is an appeal of a small claims court judgment, a limited jurisdiction civil judgment or an unlimited jurisdiction civil judgment. Generally speaking, if the attorney of record represents all of the defendants, it is only necessary to serve the attorney with one copy of whatever document you are serving. You do not need to also serve the individual defendants and individual companies represented by that attorney.
