That attorney needs to be on the end of another attorney. Sue his ass and get that money back.
As you're no longer his client, the bill is null. So I wouldn't worry about it. Sorry to hear about him duping you though. Hopefully he gets his just desserts.
Report him to your local Bar Association. If it's bad enough they might disbar him. Also, if he caused you harm or cost you money, sue him. If it's a small amount, take him to small claims court. That way you avoid using another lawyer altogether.
I didn't want to assume. He may have nearly cost them their house by not filing paperwork and not involved a lot of money at all. This nearly happened to a friend of mine where it was the bank that caught it and fixed it. Theft of money is another matter altogether and Will cause a disbarment.
