I hired an immigration lawyer to help with my I-130 case. I'm the petitioner and after my case was pending for a long period, I decided to call USCIS to get information on my case. I called my lawyer and told them what the customer rep. told me that my case was transferred to a local office. They said they can't call USCIS because I called.
Your attorney is not "prohibited" from calling. However, subsequent call within 30 days will not produce any result.

No. He/she is not "prohibited" from again calling the "800 number" (useless anyway) and is certainly free to schedule a personal INFOPASS inquiry appointment at your local district office, where you can come with.

Your attorney may be referring to the USCIS requested wait period to allow USCIS take action. Each time a applicant or attorney contacts USCIS it requests a certain amount of days to fulfill the request. An attorney may call again; there is no hard rule or consequence if there is a repeat contact. However, at this point, I am unsure if another call with USCIS would render a different result that what you already discovered. To streamline efforts, it may be best to allow your attorney to communicate with USCIS on your behalf in the future. Best of luck.
That is absolutely incorrect. Your counsel may inquire with the USCIs as necessary.

although you called and the attorney may call. they will receive notice of the result of your call and generally are advised not to call again for 30 days.
It is a matter of courtesy. If you have the most recent update, than it is a waste of resources at the counsels' and USCIS' end, to repeatedly call the office.
