A: The time to contest the fees probably expired long before the lien was placed. Your best bet is to call the attorney and negotiate the fee with him or her. Most attorneys will take a lesser fee in order to get the money quicker and the lien can be removed at that point.

A: I agree with my colleague, this is something that should have been addressed before it got to the point of a lien on the house. You should contact the attorney to see what the two of you can agree upon to help address the issue and get the lien removed. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
