Greetings! I am a legal expert on the site and am working on your question.On review of your facts, you have a good case.Given amount involved consider small claims court.You want to prepare your case by creating a time line starting from the earliest event. For each event, write down key details and witnesses and if there is a document that relates to it, save it and refer to it. This timeline can be very valuable in narrating your case and presenting it later in a concrete and specific way.Threatening to sue may prompt payment.Please let me know if that is acceptable and feel free to reply back and follow up

small claims court.... i could still win the case but there is no guarantee he will pay after the case.
