Fire my attorney first?

I have an attorney. My attorney has made me unhappy in several ways, mostly by procrastination. However, I am afraid that another attorney will not take the case because it's too small. (In the tens of thousands of dollars.) Is it legal for me to ask another attorney if he will take my case before I fire my current attorney? Or must I fire my attorney and take my chances with another attorney not accepting my case? (Attorney #1 took my case primarily because I already knew him.)
