Oksana Meets with Computer Crimes Attorney

7/22/2010 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Oksana Grigorieva just went to the law offices of an attorney -- a former federal prosecutor who specializes in computer crimes -- considered one of the foremost authorities on Internet crimes.

The attorney -- James Spertus -- practices in West Los Angeles.  Oksana is in his office right now.

It's interesting ... because sources tell TMZ Mel Gibson's lawyers have told the Sheriff's Department that they have evidence someone tampered with the tapes and they want Oksana investigated.

Spertus has lectured FBI agents and prosecutors on prosecuting intellectual property crimes.  He is the founding member of the Computer Crimes and Intellectual Property Section of the United States
Department of Justice.

We spoke with Spertus, who would not comment about Oksana.

On her way in, Oksana said she never tried to extort Mel Gibson.

UPDATE:  Sources connected with Oksana tell us she has been advised to make a copy of her hard drive in the event the Sheriff's Department seizes her laptop in connection with the criminal investigation.

She seems to be making smart moves. She is covering her situation and doing all the right things. I am with her all the way. No one will do this for money. To put Mel out there for the world to see his true colours takes guts. Reading the trash oksana blogs is proof the courge it took to stand up to this abuser.Keep safe Oksana, the victims of these crimes are with you.

I have a small recording studio at home with digital recording software. I could use a few months of phone recordings & make you sound like anything I want. It's widely used in the recording industry to make lousy singers sound great, fix musicians mistakes. Tempos can be changes, dance mixes made. The same goes for pictures. Once in the digital domain, anything is possible. Think CGI. Don't trust anything you see or hear. The courts will bear this out.

Friend?    

No expert can convince me that those tapes are not tampered with. On the tape one can hear it stops and restarts. This is all fake to my ears.

But if it´s legal to record people without their knowing maybe now more people begin do just do that, hey you can score millions. But if it´s legal it´s all right.

Why are they telling her to do something? Why not turn the computer over to a computer forensics expert and have them determine what is on the computer?

I love when knowledgable and experienced people come on this board to set the record straight about technology, law, etc. This is a learning experience.

That Spertus guy seems like the real deal. Wonder if someone finally told her to get a good lawyer since her current one gave her horrible advice.

Oksana is making all the right moves if she wants to prove her case. She has a credibility problem that she must get over and you can't get that done by using some TV-advertised law firm like Jacoby & Meyers.

If she wins, then I'm sure she'll have enough money to pay her legal team or they'll send the bill to Mel.

She'll end up suing her current attorney for ineffective counsel.

Let me get this straight.

She taped him illegally and got money from radar when she sold these illegally made tapes for 500,000 dollars.

Mel has text messages on his phone from her and gives them to police, and she goes to lawyer to find out if MEL sharing that info is legal or admissible in court. She wants to suppress that info on the basis that it "should" be illegal to share private email/text messages.

Does that sound about right to you?

I am sure MEL has hired the best lawyers money can buy, and told them not to give her anything. He will set aside money for his child and do everything for the child, but not give this Lady 1 red cent. (get the pun on "RED" cent?).
