Professional ethics

What should I do if attorney tries to extort more fees just before trial and threatens to loose if you don't pay him more money?

Attorney is on contingency in two separate cases. One case he won and attorney fees were awarded. He wants to take attorney fees as compensation but says I should pay him the attorney fees from monies I'm receiving from an escrow account and I should wait to be reimbursed from the attorney fees when they are collected. He told me that I wouldn't like the results in the second case that goes to trial in three weeks if I don't agree to amend our agreement to reflect this change.
