You would sue in General District Court.
May have jurisdictional challenges.
See any local attorney.
NO ATTORNEY CLIENT PRIVILEGE IS CREATED OR EXISTS. Do not rely on any answers you get online from me or any other lawyers in this forum---nothing substitutes for a confidential and protected discussion with an attorney. There is no way you have provided sufficient information for a proper legal analysis—can’t be done online. This is a general legal question and answer site and guidance here is for general interest---a push in the right direction.
You can file suit in General District Court; the jurisdictional limit is $25,000.00. The primary difference between Small Claims Court and General District Court is that the rules of evidence apply in General District Court. It is possible to lose your case because you do not present the case properly. You should, at a minimum, consult with a local attorney to discuss the case in detail and to discuss how to present your case. You can file an attorney through AVVO, a local bar association lawyer referral service, or the lawyer referral service operated by the Virginia State Bar.
