You have not provided enough information to answer the question. However, you should speak with the attorney and address your concerns. It is possible that this was a misunderstanding or mere miscommunication. If the attorney truly lied or misled you, then you may need to speak with a local attorney who handles professional legal malpractice. You dont explain what your damages are, so there is no way to give any insight on that issue.
