Although the company was dissolved last June, the website is still up with my name and contact information which I didn't think was permitted. My invoice is for work conducted before the dissolution and was never paid. It's not a lot of money, but I feel I'm entitled to be compensated for my work.
After a corporation, LLC or other business entity has been dissolved you can still sue it for a debt it incurred prior to the dissolution. It is probably unlikely, however, that you would succeed in collecting on any judgment the court may award you.
The above constitutes general information only and should not be considered legal advice.
You are entitled to sue on behalf of the dissolved corporation for a contract performed while the corp. was operational. Try to settle it at small claims and agree to have the funds remitted directly to you.
As my other colleagues have answered, you may still sue and get a judgment in small claims. However a good attorney may also be able to pierce the corporate veil and get you a judgment against the individual members/shareholders of the company/corporation even after dissolution.
