Is a Oklahoma district court judge allowed to tell me to make an appointment for consultation with a specific lawyer?

The Judge did nothing wrong in giving you the name of the attorney handling the case to talk to since you missed the hearing. In fact, you should have already had the name and contact information of that attorney from being noticed you could appear for the hearing. If you are unhappy with the agreement you made, hire your own attorney to proceed.
The foregoing is general information only, and this communication does not create an attorney-client relationship. Always conduct a detailed, in-depth, in-person consultation with an attorney before deciding on a legal course of action, since meaningful legal advice has to take into account considerable factors that have not been disclosed or discussed.
I moved your question to the Probate section to get you help with the substantive issues regarding the estate. As far as whether the Judge was inappropriate, there is nothing wrong with the judge suggesting you call the lawyer for the other side when you have missed a hearing. Good luck with this situation.
