Cheated by lawyer: legal action
my lawyer promised to return the money i owed to a prospective customer of my plot. initially he kept saying he has the receipt of the money paid back and has sent messages saying it. but i don't have any document other than messages and his emails regarding the said money. the customer says he didn't receive the money. the lawyer is not giving us the receipt he said he had. I fear he has cheated me and now the customer is threatening me of dire consequences but fears to confront the lawyer citing that he would build a case against him. how do i make the lawyer do his duty and free me of this mess?
