personal injury

my neice was in an accident and has traumatic brain injury and is now in a nursing home. this accident was not her fault. My wife has become her personal gaurdian and has signed a contract with an attorney to seek damages for her. this contract very clearly states that the attorney will not get paid unless there is a settlement. it also makes it very clear that our neice is liable for payment and we have no responsibility for payment. we are considering changing attorneys because we believe it will be better for our neice. we need to know two things. 1. will the current attorney be paid for his work to date when a settlement is reached if he submits a bill? 2. Is there any way that this attorney could ask us to pay for any of his work if we change attorneys? the contract is very clear that he only gets paid if there is a settlement and that only our neice is responsible for paying

his fees.
