Attorney here, I've seen more subpoenas issued by fellow attorneys than I've ever seen issued by a judge. Example: If a bankruptcy trustee wants to depose a debtor for one reason or another (or if a creditor wants to do the same), they'll issue a subpoena of their own accord. I've even sent subpoenas myself on occasion. This is usually occurring when the matter is not quite serious enough to bother a judge for his/her signature.
