Re: Builder owes us money

You may be able to find an Attorney willing to take the case on a contingency, meaning you will not have to pay till the money is recovered. Also, if you were incorporated or LLC you will have to have an Attorney. An Attorney may likely be better at finding the money if the debtor has funds hidden somewhere and you don't want to wait too long because you don't want the debtor to file for bankruptcy or the statute of limitations to expire.
