Based on the fact that she has three U.S. born children, it is possible that she may be able to avoid Deportation. Seeking a stay or cancellation of deportation will require showing an extreme hardship to her children if they were compelled to leave the U.S. with their mother. This is a complex and difficult process and it is very important that she is represented by a competent attorney thoughout the process. If you go to the American Immigration Lawyers Association website (www.aila.org) you can find a local immigration attorney (get one that specializes in removal work) to represent your girlfriend in the proceedings.
As for the last lawyer, no attorney can promise to get somebody out of detention when there is an immigration hold. The choice on whether to grant bond is up to the Immigration Judge, so if she was deemed a flight risk for any reason, or if her crimes are particularly severe under the State law, bond would be most assuredly denied. I would recommend you try contacting the last lawyer to see what happened.
Good luck with everything!
