In South Carolina, attorneys' fees are awarded to the prevailing party in an action on the lien (whether the prevailing party is the lien claimant or the property owner). For these purposes, "the party whose offer is closer to the verdict reached is considered the prevailing party in the action. If the difference between both offers and the verdict is equal, neither party is considered to be the prevailing party for purposes of determining the award of costs and attorney’s fees."

zlien is not the lien claimant for any lien processed through its software, and has no control over nor responsibility for attorneys' fees incurred by any party.
