Normally, you are simply going to terminate the lawyer. This ends the relationship. It might, however, be wise to seek the lawyer's advice regarding an attorney for the appeal. It may be difficult to find another attorney within the time limits for appeal if you have terminated one attorney.

First, I am not an Alabama lawyer. That being said, of course you can appeal--but what are the issues on appeal. Did you advance a defense of justifiable assault or a similar defense. Was this a jury trial or a bench trial. And was a final judgment issued as yet?

You need a lawyer to represent you. I don't know of anyone who does this for free in your jurisdiction. You should call the bar association in the county where the case is and get some help.
