Why would the lawyer say that? If you applied for your labor in 2004 and already had 7th year extension based on that, you are eligible for 8th (or whatsoever it takes) extensions. You don't have to worry.

If you applied for I-140 and I-485, I am thinking that you also applied for your EAD (Work Permit) and Advance Parole. If you did and have it approved you can work on your EAD.

However if you need an I-140 approval to file for EAD then you need to wait until you get that.

Based on your filing you are under Adjustment of Status pending a decision on your Green Card.
