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.

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.

Mel...get your baby away from this 'lunatic' before she harms her. When you 'win the day' in court, she is going to take it out on your child...she will harm your baby, which she looks at as a money-maker only...not a daughter. Her actions show nothing to make us think she's a good mother. Her words prove she only cares about your money. Ox is only concerned about herself and her career, if she has one left. I don't think anybody will even remember her name in a couple of years. If referred to, someone will say 'that nut that Mel had a child with', what was her name?!?!

Lawyers can indeed "fire" their clients for very ordinary reason or even no particular reason. They just have to go through the proper procedures to get the permission of the court if there's an ongoing case, in order to protect a client from having no legal representation. If she has such a stable of lawyers, though, the court shouldn't have any problem with the withdrawal.

But the lawyer could have quit, meaning the beginning of the proper legal procedure to withdraw, and then Oksana could have fired the lawyer. So both stories may be true.

Lawyer shopping and lawyer dropping, with her either firing her lawyers (probably because they weren't buying into her gold digging, I don't care about Lucia...I care only about me ways) or lawyers who thought they would sign onto this gold digging clown's act and get some money out of Mel.
Obviously someone did not clue her into the fact there are lawyers who are ethical and she had to shop until she found the ones who had enough questionable ethics to buy into her ever changing stories.
