Responsibility for managing garnishments and subpoenas.

Answered by: 

Who should be responsible for managing the bank’s handling of garnishment orders and subpoenas?

Successful management of such claims is usually centralized and coordinated through one department. Responsibility for the process is often assigned to a bank’s cashier or other officer able to work with all a bank’s business units. If the institution has its own legal department, that department may be responsible for managing such claims. If a bank has branches in more than one state, it may involve a key office in each of those states. There simply is no “one size fits all” answer to this question.
