Oksana Grigorieva -- Dissatisfied, Lawyer Shopping

9/13/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva clearly wants more than she's been getting from the courts -- because she's seriously on the hunt for another family law lawyer in her legal war with Mel Gibson. We've learned she's made an appointment to meet with yet another high-powered family law attorney today.

Oksana Lawyer
Oksana has a sit-down this AM at the law offices of Hersh, Mannis & Bogen in Bev Hills. We're told members of Oksana's posse want her to hire Neal Hersh. The firm has repped, among others, Pamela Anderson, Denise Richards and Melissa Etheridge.

This will be the second interview with a family law lawyer in two days. Oksana met with family veteran Sorrell Trope on Saturday, but we're told she wants to visit Hersh's firm before deciding.

As for why Oksana is antsy -- so far she has not been able to score more than the $5,000 a month in the child support she agreed to in the settlement with Mel in May -- a settlement she has since disavowed. Her current lawyers are asking for more than 40k a month, but the judge hasn't decided whether any or all of that will fly.

We're told there's strife in Oksana's posse over which lawyer she should hire. But it sounds like she's determined to make a change.

UPDATE: We've learned Oksana has just canceled the meeting at Hersh's office.

What happened to Trope? Trope knows Oksana is a waste of his time and can't pay his fees. Trope knows Gibson won't pay.

i wouldn't be surprised if some attorneys have asked him about this case or about OG...of course, attorney-client privilege prevents Trope from saying anything specific but....he can still advise those attorneys(friends, colleagues)to not waste their time or money on this case or get involved in this OG scheme!

This idiot belongs in the kate gosselin bad parent club. using a child to push your fame, your greed driven by your mental issues makes the fathers you are trying so diligently as unfit look like fathers of the year.

You think after you've consulted, hired and fired nearly a dozen attorneys or more that want to distance themselves from you and have told you that you have no leg to stand on, you'd get a clue.

Must be asking alot of someone blinded by their alterior motives.

Go back to Russia and take advantage of one of your own.

This attorney shopping just proves to the Judge that she is looking for a bigger paycheck. If Mel were smart, he would go for complete physical custody and give her nothing. In fact, he could probably get token child support from her. Now that would be justice.

Drop it, Oksana! Mel is paying $5000.00 a month for child support. However you supported yourself before you met Mel is what it is. No lawyer is going to take the case because you don't have a case. The pictures of broken teeth, taped rantings,...move on. You only look like a gold digger.

Most GOOD domestic relations attorneys do not charge for a consultation if they are truly interested in representing you. Cause they will get a retainer.

I am betting she is shoppping around because THEY are not wanting to be involved. They probably already know what is going on if they are at all in the "know" in that town. They have heard what is up. And you know their associates and secrataies are on here reading up. So they have probably talked to the bosses.

Whether people want to believe it or not, TMZ and other rags are important now days. They give people an alternative voice to come up and share ideas. Something real at some point has been said on here!!

All I can say is the fact she KEEPS pushing for more money KEEPS proving she is just out for money! I hope the judge realizes that and doesn't give in.

If I were the judge, I would as for a statement of what is doing with the money. He can do that if he wants.

TEAM TRUTH!!

i think she was living off of another man before Mel...a famous music producer. but i hear the pitter patter of their feet as all the men in Hollywood run away from this fatal attraction. they don't want to be yet another baby daddy with this scheming family...

i still think it's funny to think about how the whole family must have cheered, laughed and clapped as they danced across the room when this skank told them how she is having an affair with Mel Gibson...PATHETIC LOSERS!

MOst lawyers know she has no case. She was not married to Mel, their relationship was short compared to even the ones of the celebrities listed in this article. If any lawyer takes this case is for the publicity, but methinks it will backfire. If she had a case with the possibility of winning and, Gloria Alred would have been her attorney by now but Oksana hasn't got a leg to stand on. The $5000 payments a month, plus all the other things MEL HAS PAID FOR are quite enough. She just had his baby for goodness sake!!! She was not his wife!!! She wasn't with him thru bad times and good. SHe was with him for what - not even 2 years!!!

Another thing....why is ROL so quiet on things now? I am wondering if they are involved in the suit somehow now??? Like Mel's team has filed suit against them due to the tapes and they have a gag order on them now??

Seems odd doesn't it?

TEaM TRUTH!!

Oksana got pregnant on purpose. She needed a new meal ticket. What better meal ticket than a baby. The baby is and will be Oksana's meal ticket. It's working. Oksana, has been using this baby ever since she was born. C'mon, $4,000.00 a month for a baby. A house and everythig paid for and still not good enough. Oksana how does that work?

yea Mandy, this skank is insisting they have beem together for 3 years as if that is the magic number? idk, but IMO, even 3 years isn't all that much but of course, insiders are saying just 18 months is all i have heard.

IMHO, this woman thought perhaps Mel was going to marry her since she had his baby? b/c of his religion, AND IF she did indeed contact Robyn and told her of her pregnancy, she provoked Robyn to file for the divorce...we knew Mel and Robyn were separated, but finding out that OG was pregnant directly from the horse's mouth pushed her to file.

5,000 US dollars is not enough for your kids? What are your contribution towards your family as a mother? just thank God you are in America elsewhere you won't get a penny.

Oxy feels that because of the baby, people should feel sorry for her. She is so delusional that she really believes her lies. So much so that she is the only one who doesn't see the disaster she is leaving in her wake. Who else would continue on this destructive path if she didn't believe so deeply. I am sure that each lawyer she sees tells her the same thing, but in her mind they don't see the whole picture. That is why she continues to make a complete jackass out of herself seeking out new representation. There is a mental disconnect here.
