The difference between hiring a lawyer and going to a dentist is, generally speaking, you are present while the dentist is working. You have a pretty good idea of what he is doing is the work is commencing. Many excellent lawyers do not appreciate this difference, diligently do their work, and comprehensively forget to show the client what they are doing on his behalf. So, while I understand your frustration, shutting the lawyer down may be "cutting off your nose to spite your face." The first thing you need to do is to look carefully at your engagement agreement. What did the lawyer agree to do, and what did you agree to do? If you have doubts as to whether the lawyer has done that which he agreed to do, the best thing to do is to schedule an appointment with the lawyer and ask for a review of the case, requesting supporting documents. If you are unsatisfied with the answer, then I would take the approach that Mr. Hoffman suggested. But be careful. Educate yourself first as to what has actually been done. We trial lawyers, in particular, are often not very good at letting our clients know how hard we are working for them. If you talk to this lawyer, in person, by appointment, you may be pleasantly surprised.
Assume nothing. Investigate first. If you take action, you wanted to be "ready, aim, fire" not "ready, fire, aim."
Every good wish.
