Mechanic’s Lien Collections

Experienced Massachusetts Mechanic’s lien Attorney

Alan M. Cohen Fights For Construction Suppliers, General Contractors and Contractors To Obtain Their Money By Timely and Properly Preparing and Enforcing  Mechanic’s lien Throughout Massachusetts

The construction industry has an important debt collection tool that is not available in any other industry — the Mechanic’s lien. What the Mechanic’s lien does is allow you to place a lien against the property which you have helped to improve by materials and/or services. You don’t even have to have had a contract with the owner of the property to lien the property.

What you do need is a written contract. Not just any contract, but a contract which relates to the actual property which you will be directly or indirectly improving. A credit application is not good enough. That is why Alan M. Cohen has prepared a “notice of contract form” which he can customize for your business, so you have the lynch pin necessary to prepare a Mechanic’s lien. Don’t chance that your paperwork won’t be enough to create a lien–Contact our law firm online, call (508) 620-6900 or email us at
