I am a sole proprietor and recently worked as a subcontractor for a company that owes me $7,000. The company declared bankruptcy a week after the last work I completed for them. Is there anything I can do to get the money that is owed to me?

Do you know what type of bankruptcy the company declared? You may be entitled to file a priority claim for wages.
Yes, you can enforce your lien rights.
you can file a priority claim if the money is for wages earned within ninety days prior to the filing. http://www.superdebtbuster.com
