Oksana Grigorieva -- Lawyerless

10/15/2010 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva has a bunch of lawyers on her side, but she doesn't have anyone anymore who specializes in the field she says she cares most about -- family law.

1001_oksana_Getty_EX_01
As we first reported, Sorrell Trope and his firm quit Oksana, although she claims she fired him.  Either way, Trope, Anne Kiley and the others in the firm are among the best family law attorneys in L.A., and sources are telling us Oksana does not have a plan B -- at least not yet.

None of the lawyers she currently has specialize in California family law, and she's gonna need an expert to go against Mel Gibson in the custody/child support war. We're told she's on the hunt for a replacement.

As for Lisa Bloom -- contrary to what we were told when she signed on, Lisa will not be representing Oksana in family court.

The buzz in the legal community -- if Sorrell can't handle her, good luck finding another lawyer who will try ... especially since Oksana has already left a trail of lawyers in her wake.

92 I don't think Mel has to pay for every lawyer she "try's out". They will probably send her the bill. He may have to pay for the one who actually represents her. And he's already paid out $250,000. There must be a cap on how much he is required to fork over. Lisa Bloom and Gloria Allred do a lot of stuff just for the publicity. Anyone know when the next court date is?

I think, correct me if I'm wrong, but the Judge has ordered 500K from Mel Gibson so far (250 on 2 occasions) to be applied towards her legal fees. The first time, Oksana wanted her cut of the money! lol

Meanwhile, Mel is just sitting back quietly, watching this
train wreck, and grinning. Smart move Mel, smart move.

Perth it is then! What's the weather there like in February?

February last month of summer, sizzling hot, like 45 degree max
34 minimum.

The best month to come here in springs when wild flowers are in full blooms.

September to November the weather is mild, usually 29degree tops
just right for the beach.

I have a question for everyone here - at least the ones on Team Mel. If Oksana hadn't reported the DV, but she also had kept her mouth shut through all of this - let's say the recordings are leaked, but she denies the first one is her or Mel, the photo is leaked, but she denies it's her, etc., would she have more credibility? I ask, because one of the biggest reasons I don't believe her is simply because she cannot seem to keep her mouth shut. It's not uncommon for DV to go unreported. It's not uncommon in Hollywood to use information as leverage in a divorce/custody case. But with all the 'leaked' info, Oksana continually the authenticity of everything leaked to ROL. How much more credibility would she have if she had refused to confirm anything? This is like the Charlie Sheen/Brook Mueller story - Brook Mueller has never said a word about what happened and frankly no one doubts that Charlie Sheen attacked her.

I don't really believe Brooke's version either, I don't think she is so innocent.

Things may have been different Spider. That is why lawyers ask their clients to not answer any questions because it can incriminate them.

Amazing. Just amazing.

Oksana behavior proves that MG was right showing the frustration and anger on the tapes.

The Judge allows that this circus goes on and on. C'mon! this is not a murder case! I think they have already enough evidence! Why it takes sooooo longgg to put an end in this circus??

good morning all: maybe its time to put a burr in the DA's pocket...it is ridiculous how long this is going on, and the cost to Mel, that shouldnt be if the judge would put a stop to it, what is the judges problem.

************************************************

That's partly my point. It seems clear that she recorded him for the purpose of extortion; however, if these were really leaked by someone else, she refused comment, and we knew nothing except what some source leaked, would we be more inclined to believe that she recorded him because she was trying to prove DV? She's not the brightest bulb in the room, that's clear. What I'm saying is that under different circ.u.mstances, I might have believed her - so I guess Mel should be thankful that she has this need to keep selling herself to the public.
