Attorney hired told me I had to file ch7 even though I told him I have a substantial amount of equity in my property, I learned he was wrong substitute him out when he failed to comply with answers to me and court, new attorney converted to a 13 case confirmed I have been paying all payments on time the house stay was lifted in March at which point we reinstated the loan, the 2nd which is equity line was confirmed in bankruptcy case they mailed payment to them but 2nd mailed back being im only a co trustee on the house, bk court decides to convert case back to a 7 to sell my home and allow other creditors to now be paid? Is this right and how is it possible when all the money is already paid in case confirmed.
I'm afraid that significant information is missing from your post which makes it impossible to give you any advice other than you need to speak with your attorney about this in much more detail. Also, it is unethical according to the rules of most, if not every, state bar for one attorney to give advice to another attorney's client about the subject for which the attorney represents that client/

Atty Caldwell is 100% correct. If you lose confidence in your attorney, you are free to get another. Lord knows we have many to choose from here in CA.
You are not my client and I am not your attorney. This advice is given in the spirit of the AVVO platform and is based on general legal principles. You become a client when you enter into a formal retainer agreement with me.
I suggest that if you don't believe in or want a second opinion, you can bring all documents to a new attorney to have them review for their opinion. Something is missing in all the facts but your attorney has all that information, not an attorney here on AVVO!
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals.
