there is no reason that you could not handle this case in California small claims court. The limit for recovery in California small claims is $7,500, so you are eligible to recover the entire amount. The cost of filing is approximately $60, which you can also recover. It does not matter that you are a Canadian citizen, as long as the client is based in California.
