Can I do anything abt a lawyer who messed up my bankruptcy?

I filled bankruptycy due to a hit and run accident I was involved in that resulted in back surgery and being unable to work. I took out a loan on my vehicle before this all happened in order to start a new job, stupid yes I know! I paid for the bill as long as I could. With mounting medical bills and all I just couldnt do it any longer. It was either file or not feed my family. I told my lawyer if it would not save my vehicle I did not want to do it. He said he would handle that. He did tell me that my spouse's vehicle would have to be reaffirmed which was not a problem. We went to court, no creditor showed up. I asked him outside afterwards if this means my vehicle was ok. He said yes. I said what about my title. He said if you dont get it in a couple of months call him and he would handle it. However, 3 weeks ago it was repoed. I called him he said he would work on getting it back. 2 weeks pass and his secretary calls me stating Oh you didnt make payments on it and there's nothing we can do. I said wait wait...you told me this would be exempt thru bankruptcy. She said I am sorry it was a misunderstanding!! Now I find out my other vehicle was NEVER reaffirmed after I called his secretary SEVERAL times and the case is NOW closed. I am already out one vehicle...unable to work to get another and the lawyers "sorry it was a misunderstanding"!! Is there anything I can do? Thanks

You can try http://www.gabar.org and make a complaint about this attorney. It seems he made promises he couldn't keep.
