Under NRS 18.015, attorneys are permitted to obtain attorney fees through the enforcement of a retaining lien. If the attorney satisfies all elements of NRS 18.015, then properly moves the district court to enforce the lien, the district court can actively enforce the retaining lien and award the attorney a monetary judgment.
