If a defendant is represented by an attorney, you should serve the defendant's attorney unless otherwise directed by law or court order.
Serving the attorney may be accomplished by:
- Personal delivery to the attorney.
- Mailing the documents or sending them by overnight delivery service to the attorney at the address designated by the attorney for that purpose. If the attorney has no such designated address, they should be mailed to the attorney's last known address.
- If the attorney's office is open, you may leave the documents with a person in charge. If there is no person in charge, you may leave the documents in a conspicuous place.
- If the attorney's office is not open, you may leave the documents, in a sealed envelope directed to the attorney, in their letter drop or box.
- Leaving the documents at the attorney's residence within the state with a person of suitable age and discretion. You should not attempt service at the attorney's residence unless service at the attorney's office cannot be made.
- Sending the documents by FAX, provided that the attorney has designated their FAX line as acceptable for service of process.
