Customer Question

my attorney made mistakes in my I & J forms and now I have to pay more than what my net income is. I had informed the attorney of the mistake before the final hearing and they now say it was confirmed with the new information. Souldn't the unsecured pool been reevaluated with the updated information? what can I do? Do I hire another attorney to help? Can I back out of the chapter 7? thanks

If you have suffered a loss due to your attorney's negligence, you would need to file a claim with his malpractice carrier and/or sue him for the loss under theories of breach of contract and negligence and possibly under the Texas consumer protectio statutes.
