Where do I stand?

I settled a WC suit and the papers I signed stated a certain amount but when I got the check it was for only half of what I signed for. My lawyer wrote a note on the envelope that a second check for the rest would be coming. This was Dec. '02. He also has another case he agreed to handle for me...it is, according to him, worth over $50,000.00. He told me that he had filed my Intent To File Suit prior to the statute of limitations running out so we could proceed with it. My point is, I had to get a copy of the WC settlement from the Industrial Comission and I found that the amount had been changed, as well as other things, without my knowledge. I have called his office over 25 times and he refuses to call me back, (I have even faxed him a letter along with Form 33 Request for Hearing). When I go to his office, he's never in and my file is convienantly unlocateable. What can I do about the rest of my WC settlement? What can I do about this other suit that I'm not even sure he got filed? If it didn't get filed, like he said it did, do I have a case against him for Malpractice?What steps do I take from here? Please help!!
