I recently had lunch with Dave McPherson and Mike Germain of Watt, Tieder, Hoffar & Fitzgerald LLP. In addition to the fine company, they provided me with the letter you see below outlining some of the significant changes in the process of filing Mechanic's Liens taking effect January 1, 2011. The changes are outlined in the letter below along with their recommendations. They also included a sample copy of a lien which I included below their letter. As always, please consult with legal counsel before using any of the information provided below, in part or in whole, to ensure you are in full and proper compliance with the law. Additionally, Dave or Mike would be willing to provide legal counsel if need be.
