Did you live in "county B"? What your lawyer told you could be theoretically true. The divorce statute only requires one of the parties to live in the county for 10 days. Therefore, your wife might have been able to file in "county B" if you continued to live there for 10 days.
Even if the lawyer gave you inaccurate information about jurisdiction I'm not sure what recourse you have. Are you saying you would not have filed for divorce at all, but for, the attorney's statements? You can always dismiss the complaint if you no longer want to move forward (with some possible limitations depending on the stage of the proceedings). What about your wife? Would she have filed anyway? If so, I'm not sure how you were damaged.

If your concern is that your lawyer was lying to you, you'll want to discharge him and find another lawyer. You need to trust your lawyer and be able to clearly communicate with him. As to your claim of false information, I believe that would be more difficult to bear out. The lawyer would most likely have an entirely different recollection of the matter and, given that assumption, limits your recourse. Look for someone with whom you feel comfortable to represent your interests. Before doing anything, make an appointment with your current lawyer and clear the air.
