You can get a new lawyer if you desire, but you should also know that your current lawyer likely has a lot of money and time invested in your case, and he/she can place a lien against any settlement you later get with another lawyer to recover his investment in your case. There is no jury in the Supreme Court.

You should sit down with your present attorney and clear the air and ask straight questions and get straight answers. There may be complications of the case, or he may have so much invested in it that he doesn't want to settle for the offer and you do, or a number of other reasons. One can't just switch courts after 8 years of litigation. There are a lot of problems if it is possible at all at this point.
