You have to get the order changed so, as much as I hate to suggest it, you may want to report the attorney to the State Bar and ask their assistance. They really can't make him do anything but many times this will result in the lawyer agreeing to correct the error at no charge.
The other possibility is to hire a different lawyer and have them do the work and then go through the State Bar to try and get some of your money back from the first lawyer to offset the cost of the new lawyer. $2000 is a lot to get agreed wording changed so if you call around then you can likely get a better price.
