You can sue the attorney for malpractice (his insurance carrier will likely defend him). You can also make a complaint to the State Bar of Georgia. For the lawsuit, you can find an attorney from you local bar association or use the "find a lawyer" tool on this site. If you have any other cause of action other than malpractice, your lawyer can advise you. Keep one thing in mind: if you told this attorney anything that you wish would not see the light of day, please bear in mind that when you sue an attorney, he is allowed to break the attorney/client privilege to the extent necessary to defend himself. You can balance that against your desire for the suit, if you did not tell him anything worrisome, then it's not a concern. I just want you to be armed with all the requisite knowledge.

No. Any cause of action you may or may not have (IIED claims are notoriously difficult) against your soon-to-be-former attorney has accrued and is not cured by a voluntary withdrawal.
