We filed a lien.. now what? Is there an additional document I can send to help us get paid?

Texas

We filed a lien with Levelset. The customer still has not paid us. What additional steps can be taken to get our money?

Two options really, and both necesitate retaining an attorney. 

Your first option is to have your attorney issue a demand letter. This is the cheaper option, and can certainly get your customer's attention. However, I have found that folks who ignore liens are pretty stubborn.

The next option is to file suit. This is the greatest leverage you have and will force your customer to either further defend the case or pay. In Texas, usually attorney's fees are recoverable for construciton disbutes.

Feel free to contact me directly if you are interested in learning more about what retaining an attorney would look like financially and practially.

Very best,
