People always say, "hire a lawyer." I always say, "grow a brain."

In this case, however, with $20,000 on the line, you are out of small claims court, so I say to forget about growing a brain and hire one.

If all else fails, small claims court does allow a pretty good amount, it varies by state, with $5,000 being typical, but some states allow $15,000, $25,000
and you don't need a lawyer, the filing fee is usually very nominal;

With small claims court even if all you can get back out of the $20,000 is $5,000 that's $5,000 more than ZERO!
The judgement from the court is usually good for about 10 years too, I would definitely look into it if you get nowhere, but don't let it just go on and on, the people could file for bankruptcy tomorrow or who knows.
