I am the plaintiff in a civil lawsuit. I've come to believe that my lawyer has failed to follow ethical rules in managing my case. i don't know what's going on and he's already lost $500 fees to the Defendants' attorney. He's not communicating with us, and I want to notify him and the court simultaneously that we're letting him go. How do i do this? I don't even know if I can find another lawyer but we're emotionally exhausted from trying to work with this guy and he now seems to be working against us.

You just need to fire your first lawyer and hire a new one. It’s that simple.
