Good Day Readers:

CyberSmokeBlog was the only media outlet (albeit social) that attended every minute of every half dozen Law Society of Manitoba disciplinary hearings for recently disbarred Winnipeg lawyer Barry Gorlick.

Early this morning it found itself staring at this picture and wondering why did she look familiar? Suddenly it occurred! She assisted lead lawyer Gavin Wood in Mr. Gorlick's defence. While CyberSmokeBlog knew her first name was Maria it did not know her surname. She and Barry Gorlick were often seen during breaks in the proceedings off in a corner chatting, however, this did not seem unusual given she was assisting with his representation. CSB was aware Barry Gorlick had a lady friend and had filed for divorce, but had no idea it was Ms. Mitousis.

Mistakenly, CSB had automatically assumed she was with lead lawyer Gavin Wood's firm (which BTW is also on River Avenue) not realizing she was with Petersen-King.

Recall chatting with her during breaks in the proceedings on a few occasions. She seemed quite interested in blogging (CSB was quite prepared to share its experiences), its coverage and insight into the Douglas Inquiry, as well as, its views on the serious flaws in Canadian Law Societies.

CSB hopes she recovers as quickly as possible. No one deserves what happened to her!
