Is this legal

I recieved a notice for a student loan that my wages were going to be garnished. I was desperate and found an attorny in the paper saying I could file bankrucy for as little as 300.oo. I went to see an attorny I told him I just wanted the garnishment stopped he said I could take care of it I paid him cash 175.00.and the total turned out to be 700.oo which a included arush to stop the garnishment. Again I recieved a letter from the collection dept saying that my taxes were being held so I called the attorny again and he said just add 9 more dependents.for taxes and I did now again I find out that you can not file backrupcy for student loans. I recieved a letter again for garnishment and I called the attorny he now tells me You cant file bankrupcy for student loans and I told him he said I could and charged me 700.oo and now he will not return my calls now I owe IRS and again my wages will be garnished
