Seattle, WA asked in Bankruptcy for Washington

Q: Can I fire my BK lawyer for misrepresentation? ( my BK has not been approved yeti) and get a new lawyer?

He filled under chp 7 and then switched it chp 13. The trustee keeps sending letters saying everything is wrong n the motions. My lawyer keeps emailing me that he made mistakes. I don't trust him or what is being said at this point. But I am finding it very hard to figure out my next steps. I want to tell the trustee i am firing him for lack of judicial faith and for him mispresenting me and hire a new lawyer. I don't know if i am aloud to ???
