The first thing you should do is try to talk to the attorney, and explain why you are dissatisfied, in a calm and businesslike way. I would hope that your attorney would be willing to explain why he or she is doing (or not doing) whatever it is that is bothering you.
After that, just as with a doctor, you can look for a second opinion. You should have gotten copies of all the paperwork in your case as it went along, and if not you should ask for that. One place to look for another lawyer to talk to is our website, http://attorneypages.com
In most situations, you have the right to be represented by the attorney you want, and unless the case is too close to going to trial or hearing, you have the right to change lawyers.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Answer(s) provided above are for general information only. The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
