You will loose badly in court. A contract means nothing if it is not written right. Since you are asking about a lawyer I assume you have not had one read over your contract(s).

No I didn't wrote this on good faith and trust. Guess I don't need to do that any more. Contract was written correctly I just don't like the idea of going to court over something silly.

I have found that a contract is only good for what you're willing to put into it to enforce it. I have had disputes over contracts like everybody and usually nobody wins when a lawyer gets involved.

File in small claims court no lawyer needed, take your contract hopefully signed by the defendent, and you will win if its worded the way you have stated. If it isn't cut your loses and lesson learned, but if he signed it, thats why you wrote it in the first place so go get your money.

Then go get PAID, good luck to you even though you probably won't need it. If he signed it and you didn't deviate from it's content you've WON.
