If your I-485 was approved by USCIS while you were still in Removal proceedings, then it was done in error and in legal terms, ultra vires. I think you are in over your head and really need to get legal help.
You are in way over your head on this and need an attorney. Suffice it to say that the Immigration Judge does have jurisdiction to hear an application for adjustment of status. You need an attorney to review whether your are eligible to adjust versus returning to your native country for consular processing. If you don't want your current attorney on the case anymore, let him/her know, and request that they file a motion to withdraw. One way or another, you need to be represented. With so much at stake, why take the risk of winging it on your own?

USCIS does not have jurisdiction over an I-485 for a person in removal proceedings. Better get an attorney.
