I forgot to go to the post mediation status conference on time. What is the next step I should do?
Post Mediation Status conference is "Held" by Clark in Los Angeles Court.
What is the next step I should do for unlimited civil case?
Since it costs me more than $50k for the attonery fee (as per my attorney said to me) to get my money back for $30K.
So, my lawyers dropped the case since he already charged me more than 15K.
I need to fight myself.
Thank you for your help for me

Make certain the court has your correct address (review the substitution of attorney). Review the minute order. If the court sets an OSC, respond to it in writing and also attend the hearing unless it is vacated. In LA, you should be able to view and download the mintue order online.
My answers are for general information only. They are not legal advice. Answers assume California law. I am licensed only in California. Do not rely on my answers. Legal advice must be based on the interplay between specific exact facts and the law. This forum does not allow for the discussion of that interplay. My answer to any specific question would likely be different if that interplay were explored during an attorney-client relationship. I provide legal advice during the course of an attorney-client relationship only. The exchange of information through this forum does not establish such a relationship, nor does my answer or comment create a reasonable expectation that I am willing to discuss the possibility of forming an attorney-client relationship with anyone. That relationship is established only by personal and direct consultation with me followed by the execution of a written attorney-client agreement. The communications on this website are not privileged or confidential. I assume no duty to anyone by my participation on Avvo because I have answered or commented on a question. Specifically, I assume no duty to respond to any question, comment, telephone call, or email. All legal proceedings involve deadlines and time limiting statutes. So that legal rights are not lost for failure to timely take action, and because I do not provide legal advice or counsel in answer to any question, if you are an interested party you should promptly and personally consult an attorney licensed in the appropriate jurisdiction for advice and counsel. See, also, Avvo's terms and conditions of use, specifically item 9, incorporated by this reference.
The Court probably set another hearing for an order to show cause for your failure to appear. Prior to the hearing, you should file and serve a declaration setting out the reason(s) why you missed the hearing. Good luck.
This answer does not create an attorney-client relationship and is based on the limited facts presented. You are advised to seek counsel who, after a full review of the facts of your matter, can effectively counsel you as to how you should proceed. Please note I am only licensed to practice in the State of California.
You will probably receive an Order to Show Cause re Sanctions for failure to appear the the SC with a calendared hearing date. If you were unable to settle, the case will have to be set for trial.
