It seems that I may have been deliberately charged for services that were not done. If I have been lied to by an attorney about going to a hearing that did not take place so she could bill me for more money, " is this a criminal offense?
As I advised in another thread, file a complaint with the Bar Association in your jurisdiction. It will cost you nothing to do so, but you will need to do all the preparation to back up your complaint.
It is an offense. Breach of trust. You should seek professional assistance. However you need to have concert proof for that...
All these 3 things you are talking about are different things, but in most of the cases civil and criminal are treated as same but the ethical rules are totally different thing.
