An attorney can drop a case or fire a client just as a client can fire an attorney. There might be different reasons for it.

Review your contract on the terms of engagement. If you feel that the attorney violated the terms of the contract or took your money without doing anything you can file a Bar complaint.

There are many where he may choose to no longer represent you. You would be due a refund, if he did no work. I would contact him and ask what is going on. If he does not respond, I suggest you contact the State Bar and complain.
