Contractors, subcontractors, persons furnishing materials, artisans, and laborers who are not paid as promised for their work are entitled to put a lien on property on which they have bestowed labor or furnished materials. The value of the so-called “mechanic’s lien” is that of the labor performed and/or the materials furnished.
In the state of California, the mechanic’s lien is constitutionally guaranteed. However, there are specific procedures and tight deadlines involved in filing suit and enforcing liens, so attorneys familiar with the mechanic’s lien are indispensable. If you are in the San Francisco Peninsula, (San Mateo, Palo Alto, Redwood City, Foster City, Burlingame, Mountain View…), South Bay (San Jose, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara…), Alameda County (Oakland, Alameda, Berkeley, Pleasanton…), and San Francisco and would need advocacy – whether you are placing a lien or defending yourself against one, McDowall Cotter law firm based out of San Mateo can provide the representation you need to succeed.
