We are in Texas, a contractor threw us off a project and will not pay for any materials or labor for the months we worked. This has hurt our company tremendously. We filed notices on a project on time but because of being mislead with a zlien rep we did not file on the bond in time. So my question is, since we filed our notices on time and it got sent to the bonding company are we able to file or do anything to get our money? Would sending a demand letter from an attorney to bonding company help?
