Can an attorney file for a dismal before their client accepts a settlement offer?

Whoah. If you gave them authority, and they dismissed as part of a written agreement with opposing counsel, then there's nothing wrong. That's the only circumstance I can think of where it'd be ethical to dismiss before settling.
If they settled without your consent, you may have standing to file a bar grievance with their state's bar association.
