I'm happy to help you with this question. You normally do not have to mention the exact amount of your monetary losses in the complaint unless you are showing that it is more than the small claims amount, or something like that. You just state your complaint (short and sweet) with the major points (such as "incurred huge monetary losses and expenses") and then save your receipts and proof for the hearing. Please follow up if necessary.
Actually....my claim is in "excess of $15,000", does your above advice, suggestion still apply?
