Another Oksana Lawyer

Bites the Dust

10/28/2010 4:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva has lost another lawyer in the family law case -- Lisa Bloom is substituting out, TMZ has learned.


We don't know exactly why Bloom left the case -- but we're told there were some conflicts between Bloom and Oksana's remaining legal team.  Specifically, we're told over the weekend, Daniel Horowitz was working with Oksana at her home.  Bloom came by and left looking pretty mad.

Bloom tells TMZ, "I still represent her and I have not quit," adding she is just temporarily out of the family law case while she is in Europe speaking at the Climate Change Convention at the House of Commons in London.

Other sources say Bloom is out of the family law case ... period.

Fuddy -

You know I've always entertained the possibility of DNA and paternity not being wholly on the up and up. It can certainly explain why the family attornies have fled lately.

But what about Freid and Levine? They had plugged away for Miss Oksana all summer. Now I'm trying to remember back when there was that agenda posted outside the courthouse - didn't she allegedly fire them around that time? Do you remember what was on that agenda?

"I have not quit. I am letting the family lawyers take the lead in the family law case as I have a trip to Europe tomorrow scheduled many weeks ago. I am speaking at a climate change convention at the House of Commons next week. I will continue to represent Oksana as her media spokesperson and attorney." Bloom added: "I continue to believe strongly in Oksana's case and I am proud to be part of her legal team." EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS: See The First Photos of Mel and Oksana In a Passionate Embrace On The Beach Oksana has claimed her former lover, Oscar winning actor Mel Gibson, punched her in the face, while she held their infant daughter Lucia. As first revealed, another lawyer, family law attorney Mitchell Jacobs, handed in his resignation last Sunday, citing frustration with some of the Russian musician's other legal advisors.

That was dated today. I thought she already went to London. Did she hear some pesky rumors about Oksana's past while in London, maybe from a husband or two?

You couldn't write stuff this good -- it's just too outrageous.

Lisa Allred Bloom, JD is not a Climate Change person -- just a TV personality/lawyer. See her website:
There is no reason for Lisa Allred Bloom to go to London about climate change unless it is for a change of her local climate -- i.e. away from Southern Cal to escape the OG smog.

The Lisa Bloom who might have reason to attend the climate change conference and who might have reason to address the House of Commons as earlier suggested is on Lisa E. Bloom, Ph.D., author and visiting professor in communications at UC San Diego. See her UCSD page: & her own website:

Lisa A. Bloom is not the same person as Lisa E. Bloom. They have different birthdates, degrees, job histories.

Just how gullible do these folks think we are?

I can't believe either LB or OG expect us to believe the LB has to go to a London/climate change meeting story.

I am not sure if you had seen the TMZ story where Lisa said she will represent Oksana for free and as long as the case takes.

Well in that story, Lisa had stated to TMZ that: She and the Lawyers from her firm will represnt Oksan for as long as it takes and bla bla bla.

Well when you go to her website, it's only her, it list's no other lawyers. If you go to the bar assoc. it also list no lawyers associated with her firm.

I guess she has some imaginary lawyers working for

Hi Fuddy....part of what you said here, I'd like to respond to:

"The problem is with family lawyers quitting OG. Horowitz hasn't quit OG, and why is that? Horowitz is not a family law attorney. Horowitz is focused on the criminal matters (DV and extortion) and what does not affect those investigations? DNA! He doesn't give a flying flip if DNA proves paternity one way or the other; all he cares about is OG not getting charged with extortion so that he can file a civil suit for damages and collect some big bucks. DNA on the other hand very much affects the family law case and that's where ALL of her attorneys are quitting."


I would think the DNA issue is huge regarding the criminal extortion case and if the theories that Lucia is not Mel's child will completely blow Horowitz's case apart. I would think Horowitz would be very worried about it, if that were the case.

It would be even harder to win a civil suit if that was in fact true.

I am not bashing you either! I disagree with you that the people who support that theory were bashed anymore than those who don't. In fact those who don't have been the main victims of the tirades.

Nevertheless, intelligent discussion is interesting and appreciate your comments.
