    they can, but unless the attorney is working at no charge, you wouldn't want them to

    Yes, but it's not encouraged.  Involved parties usually do not serve paperwork.

    I own a process service company.

    Unlikely, normally you use a marshal or a disinterested third party for obvious reasons.

    If paying your attorney his hourly rate to deliver a subpoena doesn't bother you, then go for it.

    He "can", but he won't. Attornies don't wate their time on serving papers. They use someone else and put the cost on your bill.

    AFAIK, no. Should be a member of the dept. of justice or the police.

    Attorneys hire process servers for that.
