You’ve Been Served: Best Practices in Processing Subpoenas, Garnishments, and Tax Levies Webinar


On a daily basis, a financial institution is served with a multitude of legal documents. These documents can order your financial institution to produce confidential customer information, hold depositor funds, and even seize property in its possession belonging to the customer. We will discuss how to handle these situations.

If you find these documents confusing and intimidating, attend this multi-state seminar to learn best practices for dealing effectively with these documents and the parties who serve them. (This webinar does not discuss the procedures mandated by particular state laws.)
