So I have this deadbeat client that owes me $10k. Not a huge deal of money, but it's now the principle of the matter at this point. It's been almost 120 days and they keep promising to pay, but so far, all I've gotten is a check for $1,000.00 after I threatened to turn them over to my lawyers. So I'm going to let my lawyer deal with it now. Anyone ever experience this? Had to use Small Claims Court or Collections? What are my other options? How best to get deadbeat clients to pay? I'm in the state of California, if that matters. Howard related because Howard sues everyone!
