bankruptcy

Need suggestions please

We hired an attorney to assist us with filing for chapter 13. After four months and many paperwork screw ups, we were advised by our attorney to withdraw our petition for ch 13. Basically, the lawyer told us one thing and we were stupid enough to believe him. So, here we are. The creditors are starting to call us, we can’t file for bankruptcy, we can’t meet the payment the credit counseling agency wants. What can we do? Do we have any legal options against the attorney?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If you feel that your attorney was wrong in what he told you to do, then I would possibly go to Findlaw and ask an attorney there. Or find one of the law sites on the computer where you can ask attorneys regarding your case and they will tell you for free whether you have a claim against the attorney. Good luck to you.
