Small Claims Court

If you have a complaint about an individual or business and can’t reach a resolution, you may be able to take your case to small claims court. 
 
Small claims court handles disputes involving less than $10,000 in cash or property. You don’t need to hire an attorney and your case will usually be heard within one month of filing your lawsuit.
