The judge has signed the order to discharge my father's estate. I was under the impression that it was the final step. I am young and don't know about this stuff. Why won't my attorney distribute the funds if the judge signed the discharge order and filed it in the court?

That should have been done. Call him.

Contact the attorney in writing and make that inquiry. The final distributions should be made.

First, who is the appointed personal representative (PR) of the estate? Second, how long ago did the Court issue the order of discharge? If the attorney is the PR, why not send the attorney a polite note requesting a written explanation (preferable as Mr. Stein says), indicating why he or she has not seen fit to make a distribution. You also say the attorney "won't" make a distribution. Did the attorney actually say that? If so, did you at the time ask "why?"
