Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I will do whatever I can to answer your question and provide excellent service.
You should file a claim against the handyman in small claims court.
The limit is $5500. So, you are within the limits.

Once you get a judgment you will be able to garnish bank accounts and attach property until the judgment is satisfied.
Best regards.
