I don't practice in CA, but the answer to this question depends on the specific facts of your case. Is this a criminal or civil case? Are you a party/defendant or a witness in the case? Either way, it would be prudent to discuss the facts with attorney to determine whether you have exposure to any criminal or civil liability.
No. I suggest you retain your own counsel and discuss the facts with your own counsel before agreeing to speak with anyone outside the context of a deposition or trial.

You don't have to speak to anyone. You can speak to whomever you want. It's possible that you are liable for something, either in criminal or civil court. If you think that might be the case, then what you say could get you into trouble. In that case, you should hire an attorney or contact the public defender if you can't afford one.
You should absolutely not talk to the attorney who served you. Advise your lawyer that you were asked this by the other attorney immediately. In Michigan, this type of conduct can constitute an ethical violation.
