Filing Mechanics’ and Construction Liens on Behalf of Contractors and Subcontractors

Ensuring payment for construction workers throughout Western Pennsylvania

A mechanics’ lien is an effective, albeit it complicated, remedy for suppliers, contractors, and subcontractors who have not received payment for their materials or their labor. At Strassburger McKenna Gutnick & Gefsky, our construction attorneys proudly represent workers and suppliers who deserve their pay after making good on their promise of supplies or labor. We also help business and property owners who are facing mechanics’ or constructions liens against their property. Because we assist clients on both sides of the process, we have developed a deep-rooted knowledge about the regulations surrounding these liens, enabling us to draft stronger documents and build stronger strategies for clients.
