You need to find out if a loan modification was actually submitted to your lender or not. If it was and they still kept open the foreclosure process, they are not supposed to do that under the law, it is called "dual tracking." If it was not actually submitted then there is a problem with the lawyer you fired. There may still be a problem with the lawyer you fired even if he/she did submit the modification package.
You really need to have a lawyer look at this situation asap because time is of the essence if this is a "dual tracking" case.
