It does sound like he messed up but that is only your point of view.
I would recommend that you talk to him about getting part of your money back. It's not fair that he did a lot of work for you and for him to get paid nothing. However, if he did not deliver on his promises (he shouldn't be promising anything) then maybe he needs to give some of the money back to you.
Two years of work for $7,500!? That is a steal. If I worked on your case for two years your bill would not be less than 50,000 and that's a low number!
Talk to him or maybe just let it go.
Be sure to designate "best answer." If you live in S. California, you may call my firm for a consultation 818-507-6000. The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California.

If this attorney filed a Chapter 11 for you for $7,500, it was a warning that this was a completely inexperienced Chapter 11 attorney. I don't know any competent Chapter 11 case that can be filed for less than $20K. Hope this perspective helps!
