Written order from the client, copy of the file. Without a written order, you may be SOL.

I'd also prepare a time line with all event's and communications.

1/1/08 8am Received call from LO;discussed SOW and fee.
10am Received faxed order; see attached.

1/1/08 made appointment to inspect

etc etc

1/20/08 Sent 1st invoice.
2/20/08 sent 2nd invoice.
3/15/08 10:00 Called, left msg
etc etc.

Having that kind of info at your finger tips speaks to your professionalism, good record keeping, and honest effort to collect on a legitimate debt.

I agree with metamorphic. Definitely have all that information handy. I send all my late notices certified mail so I have proof of who signed for it. That way they cannot deny they didn't receive it.

Good lusk. I hope you get the scumbags. It irritates me when these morons operate like this. Some MBs have no moral sense whatsoever.

Goint to Court

Are you going to small claims court? If the person who owes you is a corporation, did you have to sue the managing member or officer?? I need to take someone to small claims court but want to make sure I have the right person on the suit. If you have a mortgage company who placed the order and a letter from the Real Estate Broker saying "if it does not close within 45 days I will pay you", which one do I sue?
