    This is a case of professional negligence. He is duty bound to represent you in the best way to safeguard your interests. You have a right to sue him and claim damages as a result of his negligence.

    In the absence of other facts about the case, all I can suggest is that write him a letter showing your concern about his absence and inform him in clear categorical terms that he would be held responsible for any loss that you may sustain in the process. Also send a copy of the letter to the local bar association of which he must be a member.

    The trustee may be requested to adjourn the hearing to a suitable date and request him to inform the attorney that due to his absence, the result of the case can adversely affect his client resulting in claim of damages to his detriment.

    There is not much you can do. Write a letter to the State Bar Association. That will go on his record and future clients will be warned. You will have to take more time off work; or ask for any pre-paid retainer fees to be returned to you and cancel the BK..
