You should request a face-to-face meeting with the lawyer that handled the case. If you can’t resolve the issue that way, you could consult with a legal malpractice attorney in your area to see if you have a case.

This looks like an awful situation. If I were you, I would ask for copies of all court orders concerning your case and then for a written explanation or a meeting with the responsible lawyer to learn exactly why the case was dismissed.
