"Employer said I am on my own after that so has anyone done the rest of the steps by hiring their own lawyer?"
your employer is either ignorant or plain stupid. After PERM comes the main phase of green card - I-140 processing where your employer needs to prove that the company can pay you the prevailing wage mentioned in the PERM and USCIS will examine if you have experience/education mentioned in the PERM. I-140 is basically your employer's paperwork and you need to provide your education transcripts and prior experience letters (if any).
You can do concurrent filing of I-140 and I-1485 and you can do I-140 in premium. So, if there is no RFE, you will get GC within 6-7 months after PERM approval.
