Mechanic's Liens

A mechanic's lien is a form of payment security for those who have performed construction work on private projects. By following certain procedures, Massachusetts law allows for an owner's property to be attached and eventually sold to satisfy construction debts.

Our attorneys represent prime contractors, subcontractors and suppliers who need to file a lien to ensure that they receive payment for their materials and services. We can perform title research, and draft, file and enforce a lien to protect your payment rights. We also help property owners and contractors dissolve mechanic's liens that were filed improperly or are legally invalid. If a defective or overstated lien has been placed on your property, we can help you.

Lien law in Massachusetts is highly technical, and it takes a skilled lawyer with experience in construction law to ensure that your rights are protected. We have the experience to understand your situation and the tenacity to protect your interests.
