In 30 years of recruiting (I owe a restaurant recruiting

In 30 years of recruiting (I owe a restaurant recruiting firm) I have had only one collection issue. It looks like I have another one. I have a client in North Carolina that owed me $4000.00. They paid $2000.00 of it last week (6 weeks late) and promised the second half this week. They have not paid it and are now no longer communicating with me. I gave them until Monday to talk to me about their plan to pay it and I told them it would have to be paid in full by Friday, 3/3. If I need legal counsel on this….what direction do you think I should head? Should I go to a small claims court (doesn't 2k fall into that category?) or find a collections agency or law firm?

I was brought in as a third party defendant and the third party plaintiffs sued me for a bunch of claims. The third party plaintiffs were sued for a different claim and were brought into federal court. They now brought me in as a third party defendant but are suing me for exactly what they are suing me for in district court. I did a motion for summary judgment in district court but it hasn't been heard yet. Can I file something in federal court to dismiss sincerhe exact same claims are pending in district court?

Two of the defendants I named have been challenged in a motion to dismiss. If I want to concede the point and allow them to be removed; do I have to file an amended complaint?The motion to dismiss has other challenges that I don't want to concede; when I make my arguments about the contested issues in the response (is my response a motion to deny their motion; or is it called something else?) I presume I ought to request a hearing on the subject?
