If this person's legal residence is in Virginia, then the best place to file a court action would be in the county where this person resides. That way, if you get a judgment against him/her in this matter, you will be able to place liens on his property in that county through his local court. To find an attorney in that county in VA, contact the local bar association in that county -- they all have referral services and they can refer you to an attorney that handles civil litigation & collection matters.
