We offer honest and straightforward advice and guidance so that your resources can be focused on your day-to-day business.
Should You File A Lien?
This is a common question and the answer is: not without first consulting a construction or real property lawyer. While Florida’s lien form appears simple, liens are actually complicated and have long-range ramifications. Mechanics’ liens are complex, technical and require strict compliance. Florida statute specifies:
- When and how to record a lien
- The steps required before you may record a lien and/or file a suit thereon
- Protections and remedies afforded
A consultation with a construction attorney before pursuing or responding to any lien is in your best interest and time is of the essence.
Contract Review Can Save You Time, Money, And Trouble
To best protect your business, you should never sign anything that is ambiguous or that you do not fully understand. An attorney can ensure that the wording and terms fit your goals.
The same is true for your “template-style” contracts. You may be using contracts that are actually not in your best interest or not fully suited to your specific purposes. Our experienced lawyers can ensure that your contracts serve and protect your business and interests. Many times a contract review can save you from costly litigation.
