I hired your company to place 2 mechanics liens on the woman that I did work for on her commercial property . One lien was on the actual property and the other lien was on her personal home because she personally guaranteed me with her word and promise accompanied by her handshake. After she was served with the liens, she hired an attorney to file a summons and complaint against me claiming breach of contract by builder, breach of contract accompanied by fraud, slander of title, defamation, abuse of process and unfair trade practices. I spoke to an attorney and I can not get any clear answers on the weight of this lien to allow me to be in the drivers seat vs. her. They just insist that since I did not file a suit against her first then I have to take the back seat and engage in a one to two year battle to defend my position which the cost will exceed the amount of money that she owes me and claim that I am not entitled to reimbursement of attorney fees. They also said that if I would of filed the summons and complaint first then they would of taken it on a contingency. I asked them if my lien counted for starting the case and they said yes and no. My questions to you are for clarity. What does this lien afford me, Plaintiff's position, attorney fees and where do I go from here? I am on my 153rd day after last day of work . Time is sensitive and I thank you in advance for your help.
