AM Lien Solutions provides one of the most comprehensive Lien Resolution Programs in the State of California. It is supported through our proprietary software which tracks our performance results. We work with each of our clients to develop a lien resolution program based off their specific goals and approach. Every lien claimant or provider still within the statute to file a lien goes through our fraud alert check prior to negotiations. Any provider that qualifies under Labor Code 4615 for an automatic stay on liens filed by or on behalf of physicians and providers who are criminally charged with certain types of fraud are quickly identified and reported to the DIR for addition to the current listing.

File Review and Resolution Process
Our experts review each file and develop a comprehensive plan of action within the first week. Our goal is file closure. We utilize the relationships we have built with the lien claimants over the past 15 years, and negotiate on your behalf with respect and facts. We will get you the quickest and lowest settlement. If our clients are not agreeable to a lien claimant’s bottom line, we will aggressively litigate the issue on your behalf at ALL the California WCAB’s and pursue cost and sanctions when appropriate.
