I contracted with eLienIt to collect on a lien that I thought would never get resolved. Two months later I got a settlement check without litigation.
A Concrete Company
Midway through framing a large office building, the general contractor was fired. The new contractor that took over did not pick up my contract and told me to go to my previous employer to get paid. I called eLienit for help and not only did my eLienit consultant get the new GC to pay me, but he convinced the new GC to hire me back.
About three months after I filed my lien the contractor called me and tried to get out of paying me by saying the owner didn’t pay him. I called eLienit. Their professionals contacted the construction lender and in turn, thirty days later, I received full payment. It would never have occurred to me to go that far.

I was told by the general contractor that my retainage was not due until the completion of the entire building even though I installed the foundation. Rather than sit around for a year waiting to get paid, I contacted eLienit. The eLienit team handled dealing with the general contractor and a check showed up 10 days later.
eLienit’s professionals were able to prove that the contractor failed to remit funds that were meant to pay me and collected my mechanic’s lien.
A Roofing & Lumber Supplier
We deliver millions of gallons of heating oil and have an in-house collection team. Every once in a while we have to hire a collection agency. I noticed that we were getting orders to ship to a property owner that we sent to collections so I called the property owner and said “we can’t ship to you, you owe us over $200,000.00.” The property owner said “we sent that check to your collection agency last year.” I thought the money was lost forever, until I ran into a professional at eLienIt who simply said “let me see what I can do.” Two days later I received $150,000.00 and they have not stopped paying yet.

I went to a collection agency to collect on my lien and they wanted $5000.00 up front. So I called eLienit and they agreed to collect my lien on a contingency basis (no up-front costs or deposits). Soon after, eLienit sent me my check. If I had given $5000 to the “other guy” there would have been no incentive for him to work for me because I would have already paid his fee before I got paid. Don’t be fooled, use eLienit!
