Perhaps he didn't think, because of legal implications, he would be burned by an attorney (after all, one of the reasons he was using his attorney is because of an expectation of attorney-client privilege). Besides, the attorney was already on his payroll... wouldn't that have automatically been assumed that his silence was understood since he was being paid to represent Mike?
As far as his Rolodex, maybe he felt most of his guys were compromised? Even if one accepts that Mike knows other people, it doesn't invalidate his rationale to call Saul (no pun intended).
You're really overthinking this. And it seems to me that you're making assumptions that the show has not really established to be able to make.
Just because he didn't call who you think he should call, i.e. some non-existent character, doesn't make his choice outlandish.
