Law Enforcement and Subpoenas
Subpoenas and Court Orders
Court Orders seeking lawful LEA intercepts must be referred to Peerless Network’s trusted third party service bureau, Subsentio. See “CALEA – LEA Intercept Requests” page under the “Contact Us” tab.
Subpoenas, court orders and other law enforcement inquiries seeking other information (i.e., non-intercept related) must be sent directly to Peerless Network, Inc. The preferred method for delivery of these law enforcement inquiries to Peerless Network, Inc. is via email. Guidelines for Legal Process Fees are specified below.
If delivery by email is not possible, Peerless Network, Inc. also accepts delivery via fax, U.S. Mail, and overnight mail at the contact information below.

Please Note: All requests for records production should be accompanied by the appropriate subpoena, legal process and/or documentation and must name “Peerless Network” as the service provider. Also, all requests must include the sender’s name (and for criminal investigations, the law enforcement agency name), address, email address and telephone number. Because Peerless does not generally provide service to end user customers, its response may only include the name and contact information of the wholesale customer to whom that telephone number is assigned. A separate request must be sent to that carrier, service provider or reseller to obtain subscriber or other information.
Emergency records requests should be accompanied by a release form which will aid you and Peerless in your request. Click Here for the Emergency Request Release Form.
