Esssshhhhh.......thats the problem with Pro-se case handling, 99% of the litigant think they are the 1% that can actually do so effectively. At this phase you would probably need to retain a lawyer to review what all has transpired and likely have to pay out  of pocket for a retainer to get an actual review beyond "thanks - not interested, but I wish you luck."

Legal Malpractice
The vast majority of attorneys act ethically and diligently representing the interests of their clients. But what happens when you hire a lawyer who has a conflict of interest, makes errors in your representation, is negligent or breaches his or her fiduciary duty? In those instances, you may have grounds for a legal malpractice complaint or lawsuit. Law firms that represent the victims of legal malpractice can help you file a complaint with your state's lawyer registration and disciplinary commission, while also filing a civil lawsuit against your former attorney.
