Can Lawyer Drop Client

Hello,

The lawyer handling my case told me in the beginning, that if I dont like the settlement offer, we will goto trial.

However, now that I already hired him and its been 2 years, we are at the settlement stage and the lawyer is telling me if I dont agree with the settlement he likes, then I should find another lawyer.

The Question: Can my lawyer legally drop me for this? And is the lawyer allowed to say, ''If you dont like their settlement offer, then we will goto bat for you'' and 2 years into the case, find out it was a total lie.

Thanks so much
