What We do
We service all states with Notice of Right to a Lien for both commercial and residential projects, but specialize in Oregon and Washington.
What does that mean? In most states, construction lien laws allow individuals or companies performing labor, furnishing material, or renting equipment in the preparation of the land or the construction of an improvement, to perfect a lien against the property if their bill is not paid. But to collect on this, you have to send a Notice of Right to a Lien first. And then follow the proper procedures to collect. We work with you to make sure all these things are managed well, so that if you need to request a lien document, everything is ready for you.

Let’s put a face to that voice you hear on the phone
Gwyn Executive Director
As BMDA’s Executive Director, Gwyn’s intuition is as strong as her quest for client happiness. Working with a great team makes her days go smoothly, and allows her to sink into her nights and weekends with ease. When she’s not managing work flow, financial reports and daily operations, she’s out skiing, hiking, or biking the PNW with her fab family of 4.
Tami Research Lead
As research lead, Tami gets to solve all the hardest problems, like figuring out which city the 3rd house on the corner of Main and Oak is technically in. She’s also been known to fix issues simply by her proximity. (We think it’s just her 15 years as a boy scout volunteer that makes problems run away whenever she’s around.) A consummate team player, she’s greatly missed in the office whenever she’s off camping and fishing. (Except by the fish. The steelhead are especially sensitive.)
Debbie Research Department
Numbers are the best part of the game for Debbie. She’s in accounts receivable, and sifts through all the ins and outs of the monthly right to lien notices, memberships, and other billables to make sure you’re getting everything you need and nothing you don’t. And when it comes to nights and weekends, she’s still chasing numbers, just on the soccer field with her family putting as many wins in the books as possible.
Roger Research Department
When you need a detective to track down all the details, Roger will be your private eye. Scouring through the city planning department, public records, and tax assessor files, he’ll keep looking until he finds exactly what he needs to protect your bottom line. And if you need to know an address even if one doesn’t exist, he’s the one to label it correctly so there are no surprises in the future. (And that’s exactly how he spends his weekends — out and about hiking the unknown places with friends.)
Colten Customer Service Admin
Having fostered a love of adventure early on, Colten is often planning trip itineraries after a day at the office assisting our members. His passions include reading, writing, exploring, and meeting new people.
Sierra Customer Service Associate
Sierra spends her free time reading and researching to improve her skill sets; she brings the same energy into BMDA every day to aid our customers and create the best solutions possible to everyday problems. She enjoys exploring new places with her friends and learning about each place’s history almost as much as she loves music. She can often be found listening to her favorite artists as she works to get every notice out the door on time! Sierra is always happy to aid members with any issue they encounter.
Braydon Research Department
Team is the name of the game for Braydon, filling in wherever he is needed. Starting first in customer service, Braydon now finds himself in our research department. When he’s not at work, you can find him on other teams, playing soccer and basketball with his roommates.
