Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
My suggestion is that you write the attorney and inform him that he has violated several rules of professional conduct and that you will be forced to file a formal bar complaint against him on those matters if he continues to refuse to call you back or otherwise fail to attend to your case.
Hopefully this will "light a fire" under him and get him going. If not, find another attorney and contact your state's bar association about the attorney's actions.
That's certainly an option, too. An attorney wants a bar complaint about as bad as we want a hole in the head! He'll probably be willing to accommodate you to keep you from filing.
That is up to you.
