I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF I COULD GET MY MONEY BACK FROM THEM TO HIRE ANOTHER LAWYER.
Write a formal letter to the attorney asking an explanation and alternatively seeking refund on the unearned fees. If she does not respond within reasonable time, contact the State Bar's office with your grievance. If the application was one with a deadline, you should maintain records to show that the failure to file was not your fault.
