Lien Times

An attorney who is discharged is not obligated to file a lien for payment of legal sevices prior to discharge, according to a decision issued today by the Nebraska Supreme Court. The lawyer represented a client in a divorce case and filed the lien against money paid into the court to satisfy the judgment. The attorney's discharge "did not dissolve the lien or destroy [the lawyer's] right to money that would satisfy the lien." The case was remanded to decide whether the attorney properly attached and perfected the lien. (Mike Frisch)
