Where would I go if I want to sue my bankruptcy attorney for misrepresentation?

I hired a bankruptcy attorney to file a chapter 7 and I completed all my paperwork and credit counsiling all within the time limits, and then I got a letter from the court saying that my case was being dismissed due to some paperwork. I contacted my attorney’s office right away and they told me that they didn’t file some paperwork, but I shouldn’t worry about it. They told me to show up to the court appointment anyways, that they would take care of the paperwork. Me and my wife showed up to the court, seen our names on the calander and talked with a attorney from my attorney’s office. She told both me and my wife that the trustee might not hear our case because of the paperwork issue. Sure enough we did not get seen that day. The attorney that was there said that the office would be in contact with us within the proceeding three days, and I never heard from them. I have been trying to contact them for the last month now and I have been getting the run-around. This is bull! I need help! I had money taken from my account after I retained my attorney and nobody can tell me where my money is and if im going to get it back.

    1. Contact your State Bar (or the agency in your state responsible for attorney regulation and licensing, if not the State Bar) and file a complaint.

    2. Contact a different bankruptcy attorney to handle your case.
