Hello. My name is ***** *****
Thank you for your question.
I will be happy to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The limit for small claims court in NY is $3,000 not including any attorney's fees or other related costs.
If the claim exceeds $3,000 but under $15,000 such claim can be filed with the district court and a person doesn't have to have an attorney to file and pursue the lawsuit in the district court.
I wish you the best of luck!
