Is your case over? Are you ready to burn your bridges with this attorney? I ask these question because what I am about to suggest will end your relationship with this attorney. The lawyer has a duty to turn over the file to you (with a few exceptions). Therefore, if you make a written demand of him, he is required to give you the file. If the attorney doesn't surrender the file, then, I'd think that your next step would be a complaint to the Bar Association.
