I was misrepresented by a lawyer in a house purchase in MA. As a result of his negligence, my loan was declined and the seller kept my $16,000 deposit. My attorney blackmailed me, telling me through a third party that if I don’t walk away then he will ruin my future by reporting me, so that I wouldn’t pass the bar exam after law school. He failed to negotiate the P&S in a way that protected my interests and to file a notice with the seller's attorney by the contingency deadline notifying them that I had no loan commitment, even though he knew from the mortgage broker that there was no loan. He falsely stated that the loss of deposit was my fault. How can I get this lawyer’s malpractice insurance to reimburse me for my $16,000 of damages?
