Let her know which days you were personally there, and which days your crew was there without you. Have all of this typed up and printed out so it is as plain as day for her to see it. Along with the specifics of any work that was done during each visit.

If she doesn't pay after the conversation, and refuses to pay you politely pull out a piece of paper that gives her 5, 7, or 10 days before you file a law suit against her in court. Make sure all of this looks 100% legitimate. As well stating that she will have to also pay for any of your legal fees should she not pay for the services rendered.

"Services Rendered" is a good word to use, it sounds official, seriously.


This is great advise and is almost exactly what my lawyer said to do. Staying calm is the biggest thing he said to do. Having all paperwork with me will help too, it will give her a ultimatum "Pay the bill now" or go to court and pay all legal fee's plus services rendered.
