Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the attorney did not do what they said they would do when you paid them and they did not do what you paid them to do, then you can sue them for breach of contract and seek to recover your money back. You can also go to the state bar and file a complaint against the attorney.
At that point you can get another attorney to step in and take his place and try to fix what he did not do right and if he cannot and that attorney determines that the first attorney was negligent you can file another suit against the attorney for legal malpractice.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
