Legal Question in Civil Rights Law in New York

My former lawyer is threatening to file harassment charges against me & keeps stating he will go to the police to get an order of protection against me. I called him re requesting a refund; he kept hanging up on me. i waited awhile & then called him again. i gave him over $10,000 because i believed him when he told me he had filed many written motions for my case, requests for hearings, etc. i found out from court, after my case was dismissed after 1 yr when the "complaining witness" never showed, that no motions were submitted on my case, no requests for hearings, there was nothing submitted. When I found out & called him, he got angry and cruel, refusing to speak to me or refund me. I wanted to give him the benefit & courtesy by talking to him directly but he is refusing & threatening me

If he doesn't want to talk with you, you may consider filing a charge with the bar.
