Advocate withheld my retrenchment money

I was retrenched at work 2007. Hired an advocate (labourlaw specialist) who were recommended.
He handled the deal but to my loss did not ask for the deal I expected and was willing to settle for.
My money was paid to him in private account and after 4 months I had to go to an attorney to get my money. He paid me bits and pieces and still owes a lot but i cannot do anything unless I pay the lawyers R6500 to start process.
It seems that he isn' t an advocate at all - letter from Kaapse Balieraad to proof.
What can I do to get the retrenchment agreement between them
invalid as I did not sign anything he did all on his own and not even told me when he got the moneyl
