You can file a lawsuit against them in small claims court. In Texas that will usually be in the local Justice of the Peace office who has jurisdiction up to $10k.
You start the lawsuit by filing a petition and they usually have a form there that you can use. You then have the Sheriff's Department serve it on them and they have about 20 days to file an answer. After that the judge will set it for a hearing.
