Can i File a mechanic lien if i am just a handyman that had direct contact with client

AlabamaMechanics Lien

I own a company that has a construction business license through the county. Im not a Gc . The company is a cleaning company originally. I was asked by a client if we could do some repairs to her home and i explained that it would be possible because my husband is a handyman .So repairs were done and the last bit was completed. She refused to pay and said we couldnt put a mechanic lien because im not licensed through home builders. So my question is now we will be going to court and her lawyer is stating i cant collect what is owed because of improper licensing. But the big thing is she knew what my company was never mislead her one bit . Everything we did fell under what a handyman is allowed to do. So here we are 6 months later and she admitted she owes the money but is refusing so now she is attempting to sue me .

I am not real sure what the question is. How much are you owed? Did owner pay anything. There are some issues with liscenising but you may still be able to recover depending on how much your project was for. Glad to discuss if needed.
