they still owe me around $6,000.00 outstanding and we wer going to produce shop drawings for them that would have taken about another month to complete. I have already paid my subconsultant Designer as I am the business owner of the SCorp, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
I may retain counsel but I'm not sure if it's worth it for this amount. I would like to file a Notice of Action but not sure if I do it here or in Georgia or if that is the best thing to do at this point but I don't want to wait until my time limit is run out either. I think they may pay if I show I'm serious by filing the Notice of Action.
Until they received approved shop drawings and then we were going to Design a Larger one for them. The project would have likely lasted another 6 months, the owner did speak of me possibly becoming a partner as well... which in his words "would make me a very rich man". It's hard to speculate how long the project would have lasted but best guess would be 6 months to a year for both cranes.
my thoughts were at first to file "notice of Intent" at least to Nudge them along and might put all of this to rest instead of having to take them to court. If I do take them to court would they have to pay my legal fees if found guilty? Yes I could seek an attorney but for this amount would it be worth it? could I sue for much more than the damages of the unpaid invoice?
can you send a demand letter for me for $50 to $100?
ok thank you for your advice.. can I get a transcript of this emailed to me? If you know of anyone that needs a device modeled in 3d let me know.. I will give you a great rating as I think you deserve it. Best of luck to you..
well thank you anyway... very professional.
