How could I deal with my ex-employer for not releasing the design work I\'d done?

I have been working for a company creating online software/application
for the past years. Recently I got laid off and they disabled my
connection to the company's server right away. Since I was a remote
employee, I wasn't able to get the design files I'd done for the
company. Therefore, I emailed them to ask for a copy for the purpose
of creating personal portfolio. They transferred my question among
different managers and ended up ignoring my request.
I'm really frustrated because I'd been working for this company
since I graduated and now I'm losing all the design works I've
done, not knowing what I could include in my portfolio in order to
move on to the next job. Since I was paid to create the designs, I'm
afraid I may not have the rights to request the files. Is there any
third person I could contact for assistance? What would be the
appropriate way to handle the issue?
