What can I do if my attorney will not return my calls? 

Question Details:

I spoke with my patent atty in 05/09. At that time he said he received information from the patent office and would mail it to me. To date 11/20/09, he will not return my calls, respond to my emails or letters sent. I do not owe him any money. I paid him for him to file as we go along and I am due the response. I keep calling and I am very professional and nice. I feel hurt. What can I do? I call his home office and leave telephone messages. I call his office and leave messages with secretary and he will just not call me. We had a friendly rapport. What can I do ?
