Your facts are a little hard to follow. If you delivered papers you might be an independent contractor or an employee, depending on the contract. But, there is no lien to file either way. You might have a small claims case. If you were an employee, your attorney's fees might be payable by your employer if you win the case.

I agree with my colleague, your facts are not clear. Was this construction work as you post or was this in the course of delivering newspapers? I cannot answer your question as posed. Clear up the exact issue and what did you do to earn the money that they are holding back.
The hiring of an attorney is an important decision that you should undertake with careful considerations. The use of Avvo, Inc.'s question and answer forum is only to provide general information and in no way forms an attorney-client relationship between the you and the attorney answering your question.
