Yet another good reason why I stay as I am

Afraid I would be going for the throat to get my money then once got it, using social media and any other avenues of publicity to name and shame the client.

As you can tell I would alienate so many in the industry I wouldn't get any more work

Exactly, we both know what goes around comes around, everybody knows somebody as you've proven 1st hand with me and your site visit to Bristol and certain folk at Plantworx, one of my biggest concerns with social media, very easy to go one step to far.
Always maintain, don't step on too many fingers on way up the ladder, you may needto grab that helping hand while sliding back down the greasy pole.

To hell with that. I had a client who held back on 3k at the end of a job for no reason. Did the first reminder then the second and then the final demand then wacked a summons on him. Took a year to get him in court mind, but, by then he had run up a 27k legal bill with a firm of solicitors who gave me hell for the whole year before the case. That never fazed me.Anyways, it went to court and he lost, had to pay all my costs, dear episode for him

I would have enjoyed seeing those cocky arsed solicitors getting knocked down as much as receiving the money. What must you be owed for the physcological pressures they put you under over the year Dave...... If a barrister could sort that it would be a further boot right up their arses
