Sold our home but mortgage not paid off. Buyers attorney messed up? Mostly venting but also curious if this has happened to anyone else?

I’d like to start by saying, I do not like our buyers attorney. We agreed to close on 12/28 back in sept. Their Attorney had a planned vacation and wasn’t even going to be in town that day. She didnt point it out until 2 weeks before closing and demanded we close on 12/20 instead. The communication surrounding this was exhausting. Additionally we had just offered to close on 12/15 if they would let us rent back until 12/22 at which point they could get in early. There attorney advised against it. We couldn’t do the 20th (we had a 4/5 day period between selling our home and buying the new one per our lender so that would have put us in a hotel for an extended time bc of the holiday)so we agreed to the 29th as long as they did walk through and closing before noon (long story but we had to provide documents from the sale to our lender for closing on our new house and we didn’t want our closing to get pushed bc of the holiday and we would be in a hotel). The morning of the 29th comes and walk through happens. A little after lunch I’m looking for the email from my attorney with final CDS and it’s not coming. So around 2 I reach out to them to learn that their attorney pushed closing to 2 and didn’t tell anyone. (My attorney was not aware) So now we don’t get the documents we need before the banks close and closing on the home we are buying gets pushed and we get stuck in a hotel for 2 extra days. Now our lender is saying they have no record of a wire paying off our old mortgage. I have calls out to the attorney’s, just curious if this has happened to anyone before and how it was resolved.
