Thank you for your follow up.
While I cannot comment on your specific case, generally if the person does not trust in his/her lawyer's competency or ability to adequately represent person's interest in a lawsuit, it is a good idea to hire a new lawyer who is competent and experienced in the area of law on which lawsuit is based and also experienced in civil litigation.
Generally, in most cases, when defendant fires his/her lawyer, the judge would give the defendant an extension to file a new counsel (usually not more than 30 days), however, each case is different and unique, so it would be a good idea to consult with a local attorney who can review your entire case and the entire court record, do provide you with specific legal advice that you are seeking.
Also, if the lawyer is not competent or is making many errors, then the client can file a formal complaint against the attorney with the state Bar association and also consult with the local legal malpractice attorney to determine if there might be claim against the current attorney for legal malpractice.

When, choosing a local attorney to represent you, it would be a good idea to choose someone who has a practice exclusively dedicated to civil litigation, has at least 10 years of experience and handled similar matters and also regularly practices before the court located in the jurisdiction where your matter will be heard.
