I was hired to design a space for a restaurant. At that time, it was verbally agreed. But a few months later, I invoiced the client for all the reimbursables ie- toll and mileages. He did paid for that.
But now he decided that he's going to keep the existing decor. And since he's not using the design, he's not going to pay me for my services such as producing the permit drawings, meet with the city personals and his realtor, research and shopping for furniture, and time spend with him and potential contractors on the project. I intent to send him the last invoice as a final attempt. What is my option there. Small Claim Court?
