The Illinois supreme court has a client protection program for people who feel as if they were defrauded by lawyers that took their money and did not perform any work. You can file a dispute with them to try to get your money back. If you wind up having to pay another lawyer more than this lawyer promised to hear the case for, you can also seek the difference.
As far as the foreclosure itself goes, we unfortunately cannot represent customers in court. The best thing to do is keep calling around or emailing lawyers and hopefully you can find someone.
