It is important to understand that if you have made a mistake and chosen a lawyer to handle your case who does not have the ability to get you the result you deserve, or with whom you don’t have a good rapport, that mistake is not irreversible. You can fire the first lawyer and hire someone else, and you will not have to pay more in fees. The first lawyer may have a lien for the value of the services that he has provided to you, but he will get paid from out of the fee that the new lawyer receives. Think of it like re-financing your house. There may be some inconvenience in the short run, but in the long run, you will come out ahead.
