Do I need to answer the agent’s questions when served a grand jury subpoena?

Answer provided by:

No.  Most attorneys recommend that you do not answer any substantive questions when you are served with a grand jury subpoena.

Law enforcement authorities, when they serve a subpoena, frequently try to question the person subpoenaed You may politely, at any time, inform the agent serving the subpoena that you would like to speak with an attorney before answering any questions or, alternatively, you may refuse to answer any questions and have your attorney communicate with the government.
