Question Irresponsible Lawyer....Need advice

I paid this so-called lawyer, MBW, to settle my estate 7 months ago. As a laywer and settlement agent, he was suppose to send the Original Settlement Statement and other documents needed to the County Clerk to record it as sold to new owner. However, I recently received the 2005 Tax Statement for that previous property. The property does not belong to me anymore so I sent that statement to the present owner; however, the owner called me back and said "I've never received the title to the estate so I will not pay for the tax". So furious for not knowing what to do now, I tried to contact that lawyer, MBW to see what's going on. When I called the lawyer, he stated that he doesn't know what I was talking about. So I just sent him a copy of the Settlement Statement and General Warranty Deed that had been done at his office to prove to him that it's his duty that he accept to be the agent to settle my property. I still have not receive any reply from him nor able to contact him. I also called the County Clerk but they said I have to contact my lawyer to send the Originals to the Clerk's office.

That impolite and irresponsible lawyer wouldn't do anything about it. What should I do now? I don't want to be liable for the property tax that I do not own anymore.

Anyone can help, please reply to this thread asap. Thank you so much.
