If you were not the buyer or the seller, then you have no "right" to see the documents. You will see the deed once it is filed and becomes a public document.
If you were the buyer or the seller, then you do have a right to see the documents and your attorney has no right to withhold the documents from you.
If you were a third party beneficiary, for example an heir, then the attorney may have represented the estate and not you directly. In that case, you may not have a right to see his transaction file because his "client" was the estate. You would only get access if you challenge the transaction in court and seek discovery of the closing documents.

I agree with Mr. Millar. Understanding your specific role in the transaction is necessary for an attorney to give advice. I recommend you contact a real estate attorney to discuss your case.

I agree with counsel. Once the deed is recorded with the county clerk it is public record and you will be able to obtain a copy. Otherwise absent a Subpeona or a direct relationship to the transaction you have no right to require the title company or attorneys to provide you with the closing documents. Good luck.
