Our Westchester County Lawyers Can Assist With The Proper Filing Of Mechanic’s Liens
A mechanic’s lien is a useful tool that contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, architects and other construction industry professionals can use to ensure they get paid for their hard work, labor and services. However, if the lien is not filed correctly or in a timely manner, it may result in a discharge, which means you are left with fewer options.

We have filed numerous mechanic’s liens over the years on behalf of contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers and design professionals throughout New York and with the various governmental agencies. On the flip side, we can also help you bond off mechanic’s liens when needed.
Helping You Get Paid For Your Work
The point of a mechanic’s lien is to ensure that you get paid if there is a dispute over how much you are owed, if a project fails or if the company that contracted with you claims it does not have the money to pay you or refuses to pay you for whatever reason. However, you must know how to file a lien properly or risk losing the ability to collect.
Our lawyers can help you with:
- Filing private mechanic’s liens
- Filing public mechanic’s liens
- Enforcement of mechanic’s liens — this can include initiating proceedings to foreclose on a property or other forms of litigation, if necessary.
- Bonding off mechanic’s liens — as a prime contractor, this can get the flow of money on a project moving again and, as an owner, rid your property of liens.
Working with a Sesti Law Firm PC attorney will increase your likelihood of getting paid in a more timely manner. Let us help you make sure your mechanic’s lien is effective so you can get paid.
