4. Nevada Small Claims Court: (For your information only - not a legal advice)
Before filing small claims complaint in Nevada you need to show that you have demanded payment from the contractor. You can do it by a certified letter, return receipt requested. In this letter you should specify what and when do you want from the contractor, and warn that you intend to sue if your demand is not met by a certain date.
