It Happens More Than You Think

Does anyone have a suggestion for collecting from a company who suddenly won’t communicate?  I am owed over $2600.00.  I spent a lot of time, gas and money and had what I thought was a good relationship until my third check was 20% of what was invoiced. Suddenly all communication was cut off.  I have faxed, emailed called, begged and pleaded and all to no effect.  I signed no contract. I have all my emails, work assignments, photo’s and the fee’s in writing.  But I don’t have an attorney and don’t know how to place a lien.  Any suggestions?

Thanks to their greed and my foolish trust my family has to suffer.  Be very careful how much work you do before being paid.
