Small claims court

Has anyone successfully sued a regional in small claims court? I am owed just over 3k in unpaid invoices over by these people. We were told net 30 and some date back to September! They continue to claim that they will pay if/when Safeguard pays them. I'm closing my business to start a roofing company and I really need what's owed to me.

PacWest Property Services in Graham, WA. I know there are others that have been screwed as well.

Yes I'm legal, although I was stupid enough to believe them that I only needed a basic business license to do the work. That was all fine when we started just doing grass, but then they pushed us to do wints and misc small plumbing work (fixing leaks, replacing faucets, etc.) So...

How much does it cost to file a lien? Also, our contract states that we agree not to. Not sure if that holds water or not.

Breach of Contract is a 2 way street. As long as this Pac West breached contract, not paying within contract timeframes, before you Breached, by filing small claims, then all should be good.

You very well my win but can you collect? Be prepared to execute a judgement.

I am currently taking a Regional to court for $23k in unpaid invoices. We were using PPW and took screen shots of all the pages of each order. Once they found out we served them they blocked us from viewing profile. Thankfully we were able to get that information before they did so.
