Yes, your attorney can ask you to sign the dismissal. If you don’t trust him, why would you object to this? If you don’t sign the requested dismissal, he can petition to the court to get out of the case.
Start looking for another attorney ASAP.
Yes it's legal. If you fire him, you may be able to find another lawyer to represent you. If he fires you, you may not be able to find another lawyer.
