You need to consult promptly with a legal malpractice attorney. If this occurred in Florida, there would be a two-year time limit for you to sue the attorney for malpractice that runs from the date the underlying statute of limitations expired. There may be malpractice damages to which you are entitled, in addition to a refund of the retainer.

Sounds like you have an additional legal problem involving the attorney's failure to act. Seek legal guidance within the Statute discussed by Mr. Burns.
