lawyer problems

Has anyone had this problem.. after my case was done my lawyer won't return any phone calls or emails.

I filed bankruptcy earlier this year and it's been finalized, but I still need to report any money received (tax returns, inheritance etc) well I have like $8000 in tax returns that I need to report and my lawyer has all the info of who to report it to. I've emailed him 5 times and called the office and left messages with the receptionist. I have yet to hear from him since June. If the money isn't reported I could go to jail, and I'm not going to jail because he won't respond.

Any advice, suggestions? If this has happened to you, what did you do?

Call the Court where your papers were filed and see if they will give you a copy of the discharge. I'm sure they will give you the info you need!

Go to his office in person, or file the amended report yourself

I definitely won't be using him again if this is how he's going to be after the case is done.
