Kiele Linroth Pace's answer Was it just a friendly referral? If the attorney compensates the bondsman for the referral it might be the crime of "Barratry and Solicitation of Professional Employment" see Penal Code 38.12. If that happened then the client can void the contract with the attorney and file a lawsuit to recover the fee, if they win the can also recover a $10K penalty against the attorney that committed barratry plus that attorney has to pay the client's civil attorney... See Government Code section 82.0651.
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer A hotel may not discriminate against you on account of race, religion, national origin, etc., but may discriminate against you on account of merely not liking you or mistakenly believing you are selling drugs.
Regina Irene Edwards' answer This question doesn't make sense. An "error" in an order would not allow a party to move away and cut off contact with children. There is something else going on, and you should consult with an attorney who can review the court orders and give specific advice.
Timur Akpinar's answer As a starting point, one option could be to contact Washington Courts (https://www.courts.wa.gov/) and ask them about any case information they might maintain. There are a number of legal tools for searching state and federal databases (some of these charge fees for their use); these might be useful as well. If the matter was in suit (with an index no.), that could make the chances of finding it more likely.
Thomas C Gallagher's answer Reading that description, it sounds like you may want to replace your lawyer. If you do, your new lawyer may be able to ask for another Contested Omnibus Hearing. That would be an unusual request, and would need to have strong reasons to have a chance. But a new lawyer would have better chance to do it again, or raise similar issues in a different context. The defendant cannot influence who the prosecutor is, but can remove one judge without cause if done soon after learning which judge is...
Timur Akpinar's answer You could additionally post this in the Criminal Law section. Criminal law attorneys would be able to provide more meaningful input on the issues mentioned here than personal injury attorneys would.

Griffin Klema's answer Generally speaking, you hold the privilege (and thus the right) to keep information confidential, or to reveal it under the attorney-client privilege. Disclosing information that your attorney provided to you may not be in your best interest however, and I recommend you have another attorney review the information you want to disclose. As for pursuing your former lawyer for malpractice, those are difficult claims to prove, and you would need to start a new lawsuit against your lawyer separate...
