ONLY TWO DAYS LEFT TIL THE STAUE RUNS OUT AND THE LAWYER NEVER FILED MY CASE WITH THE COURTS
Michael and Christian are correct. If you file the Praecipe for Writ of Summons yourself, make sure it is served on all defendants within 30 days. If for some reason you lose your case because it was not filed on time, you may have a malpractice case against your former lawyer, but you will have to prove that you would have won your underlying case.
Statutes of limitation are absolute and can not be "extended" by filing a form or paper or in any other manner. Talk to your attorney. There may or may not be reasons for failure to file prior to the deadline in the statute of limitations. One thing is for sure, once the statute kicks in, that is in fact the end of the claim. There are no "extensions" or excuses.
