That's a bit of an exaggeration. You can probably get an attorney to knock out a demand letter for a lot cheaper than that. (I'll keep thinking on it, but I don't think I know anyone barred in PA.) Alternatively, you write a demand letter yourself based on online templates, then take the case to small claims court where you will not need an attorney to represent you. Google "Pennsylvania small claims court" without the quotation marks and go to the top result.

Down voted both comments in this chain because they're both partially correct -- and by extension, partially incorrect. This varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Some states allow you to be represented by an attorney in small claims court, while others forbid you from being represented by an attorney in small claims court.

Small Claims as another said! You could also look at other written request for payments and copy/stylize them to fit your situation (To make it look professional) And it doesn't hurt to do as someone else said, hire an attorney to send out that initial letter requesting the amount or be hit with legal action. Good Luck! Don't back down!

Wouldn't advise it. YMMV depending on the state/country but at least where I'm from, while you have copyright over your work, servers still belong to the other party and you could get in trouble for changing data on them without permission. Best course of action is small claims court if you have a contract. If you don't, you should have had one. Source: Been in the same position as OP.

1. Take their sites down if you can 2. Go to social media, nobody likes bad PR. I've had most problems solved with a few tweets and Facebook posts 3. Take it to court
