Id call every one of el acapulcos in surounding areas ask and see who you need to talk to get payed, talk to the police about it to because they received but didnt pay,next talk to your lawyer might send them a bill again and file a lein on the property,or just go there every day and asked to be payed ? I had a guy that wouldnt pay me $1300 one time for carpentry work so I decided to park in his driveway and was sitting there when he got off work everyday till he paid.

Rather than trespass on someone's private or business property, I would file a lien against his business. That will get his attention.

So Jr stiffed you? File a lien, I know it is a pain in the rear, but it's the best method.

A lien will only work if they go to sell. If they were not open for business it would be totally different. If you file a law suit for amount owed and cost of collection fees and interest you will get it. Maybe not right away but you will. Took me three years to collect 54,000 dollars off a dead beat job. Good luck!!

Stinks, doesn't it? Make sure you have a paper trail. No proof, no payment. A verbal agreement isn't worth the air expended. Just sayin'.....

They pool all the tips for the week then split them. Make employees sign a form saying they recieve their check in cash. But the cut of the tips is all they get. Employees are all illegal, so they aren't about to call the labor department.

he lives less than a half mile from that one. In a house in Ivy Green he paid a half million dollars for 10 years ago, probably worth $750,000 or more now considering all the renovations he's made with "cheap" imported labor.

If the material and everything covering the booths belong to you, simply show up there with trucks and extra help upon first opening one morning and remove them from the restaurant. I would think if the guy refuses to pay you, you are entitled to recover your property. I bet he would show up quickly after being notified by employees, and gladly pay you.

I own a business 24 yrs and usualy just a few people a year wasnt going to pay from the get go, that makes credit a bad thing, but most people are good as gold.
