taking agent off my invention

I have a pending patent application. I want to remove my current agent. He has not returned a single phone call or email. I am the sole named inventor. Can I do this myself with the USPTO? This guy has had 5 non compliant responses in the past year so I really need someone who knows the ropes. TIA

To withdraw the power of attorney fill out form PTO/SB/82, http://www.uspto.gov/web/forms/sb0082.pdf.
 
If you have hired a new agent or attorney or agent they can fill out the form for you.
 
If you have decided to forego representation, in the portion about your new agent or attorney, just write that you will be handling the case "pro se."

Check out this link.

  If you're going to engage another patent attorney, he could take care of this, too.  You're going to want the files in the possession of the other attorney.  Without knowing all the details, that's what I'd recommend for now.  Note that you have to show you have the power to do this, though.

I think this is what you want:
 
Revocation of Power of Attorney with New Power of Attorney and Change of Correspondence Address.
http://www.uspto.gov/web/forms/sb0082_fill.pdf
 
It's a pretty straight forward form.  It doesn't include a certificate of mailing, so I'd include it with a general transmittal, like the following:
 
Transmittal Form
http://www.uspto.gov/web/forms/sb0021_fill.pdf
 
These forms and others are found here:
