I am sorry to hear this.
Your best next step would be to consult with another lawyer face-to-face to get a second opinion. You should be sure to consult with an experienced lawyer and also be very organized when you come for the consultation so bring all the documentation and have it organized very carefully so that you can show the lawyer exactly what has been going on and what has been done and what is to happen next.
Then the lawyer will give an opinion as to whether your lawyer is doing this correctly, whether it can be done more efficiently, what the other options are, and how much this lawyer would charge at least in terms of a retainer and an hourly rate.
