change from contingency to retainer

I needed contingency w/civil suit and was referred to an atty who agreed I had a strong case and he would work on contingency. After the demand letters were unsuccessful my attorney said I have a solid case but he wanted a $10000 retainer. This was right before my statute would expire and the pain of this last year would have been for naught. I literally scraped $500 together so he would do a ''Pro per'' complaint which I filed. Won't atty's action compromise my case? I've tried Bar referral..no luck...How do I find a good labor law atty on contingency to litigate? HELP
