The Texas Board of Legal Specialization has certified approximately 135 Texas attorneys as Board Certified in construction law. Lovein Ribman’s Construction Law Department is overseen by two of those Board Certified attorneys: Robert M. Lovein and Haven Massey. As Board Certified construction law attorneys, we know the Texas mechanic’s lien laws and we love teaching them to our clients. So much so, that we have developed a private Mechanic’s Lien Training Seminar designed to teach you everything you will ever need to know to prepare, file, and serve all Texas mechanic’s lien documents. It has been said that the Texas lien laws are some of the most difficult to understand and complex lien laws in the Nation. However, through our Lien Law Seminar, we will break down the lien laws to their simplest form and teach you to prepare lien documents like a professional. Our Lien Law Seminars include the following:
