You don't have to take them to court yourself, you can use one of the claim agencies, just google "EU261 claim agency" and you should be able to find a few.
They usually take a commission which is part of the amount they get for you.

Bear in mind that it can take long time, if they actually have to take the airline to court, a year or two is not unheard of.
