Try to discuss your concerns with your attorney. If you are not satisfied, consult with other attorneys on taking over the case. You may want to hire a new attorney before firing your current attorney.

Note, this is only general information, not legal advice. Consult an attorney in your state.

When you have a question you have to give enough basic information. You have not stated what type of harassment is involved here. Perhaps a personal injury attorney is needed, perhaps just a general practitioner. Actually going to see an attorney could be quite helpful.
