It will be hard to find a lawyer that will take the case on a % basis since so much of it is based on what each of you said with little of it in writing.
You will want to look for a lawyer that does legal malpractice, you can find a list of them at www.lawyers.com and in the Area of Practice section enter "Legal Malpractice".
They may have you start with filing a complaint with the State Bar but some lawyers don't like to do that first and you don't want to take that route until you know what your lawyer's plan of action is. If you file with the state bar then many lawyers won't take the case after that because you may have already put something in the documents that hurts your case, even though you don't realize it.
