I want to file...

I want to file a lien on a property where I was involved in home improvements. Does a letter of intent to file a lien always have to be written first? Or can you file the lien directly?

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

No paperwork has been filed. There have been verbal conversations for 2 months plus. What papers need to be prepared?

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the home located?

The home is located in Palmyra, VA

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I think I am ready to talk with the attorney

The lien can be filed directly. However a written letter is often prudent because it can lead to a resolution and payment. Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
