You win. The customer/defendant still doesn't pay. You're left still chasing your money by way of garnishments, writs of execution and property liens.

That pretty much sums it up. Small claims just doesn't scare those types of people.

What I have done is just resorted to using a collections agency. Now granted, they take their 1/3 of whatever it is, but you don't have to do anything but fax over a copy of the latest invoice and they take it from there. They mail you a check when they collect. Like I said, it's a little costly, but is has to be the easiest method. Plus, the particular agency I have been using has got the job done each time I send them something.
