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.
