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.

I always thought her point about fearing she would not make it was to justify the taping of telephone calls without alerting the other party (Mel). My understanding of the law is that is the only case where such recording would not be illegal. She has to push that point to avoid extortion claims and any other laws she trounced on in that behavior.

Exactly. But she also publicly derided Gibson, and discussed elements about case to the media, and ignored gag orders. Also, her public statements can be used against her in court. She boxed herself into a corner. Mel hasn't said one word.

OMG!! another Lawyer?

This woman has deep mental problem, she can't be told the truth.
That she is not Mel wife and she's not entitled more than what she's getting now till Lucia is older.

After all Mel has been generous to her.

Maybe she will try and hire Harvey next hehehehe.

Who'sThat    

i just saw the pictures of the Sherman Oak's property...it's beautiful...this woman has no soul, no gratitude...she has some audacity, still living in that nice home and acting so arrogant.

at some point, Mel will have to kick this family of hyenas out of there. there will be people lined up along the sides like a parade, cheering as these scavengers leave...

@V

I hope you will reconsider your decision.

Together we stand, divided we Fall.

V = VICTORY

With so many posters, we all bring our own specialities in to the topics. My speciality is being cute (according to MAC)

It does not mean that one is better of more right than the other because in the end all that matters is that we all get there/solve this case (or at least think we did).

So I would like to see you back in the team,

I think she needs to listen to her faked tapes again. Especially the part where she doesn't care about the money and the part about she didn't try to extort. Obviously she's not going to get far in the DV for extortion so know she's going to try the legal method using the baby. She's not even smart enough to be discreet about it. It's never been anything other than about the money to her. She's like a pig at the trough.

I think a fair settlement would be she gets the same for Gibsons baby as she does for Daltons kid. Both kids are living in the same house, both are equal. One should not be worth more because her father makes more. Anything over and above that should be at the fathers discretion as how they give it to their children be in trust for them or material gifts to them. She has a problem with that fine, she can go to work. She might as well as she seems to spend no quality time with her kids anyway, she's too busy lawyer shopping. Hopefully she reads TMZ and follows up on what could be a job lead for her. There seems to be certain ranch in Nevada that has a new opening that she really should look into. The jobs right up her ally and she certainly has the qualifications. Supposedly the money's good,and will get those bills paid, unlike her piano playing. Who knows maybe the job would even include benefits that would help with her plastics bill to keep her john worthy.

PURCHASE PRICE: $2,405,000
SIZE: 3,468 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms

That's a pricey place, you can build an apartment complex for the size of land, that woman is so darn ungrateful.

@Who Yes, but according to OG and her family, it's "poverty" with "rats."

@Hi Koala That's one of the reasons she's pushing the "three years." It's still not much, but more than the 18 months. You would think by the way she talks that there were together for many years. You're right...there is something very wrong with this woman aside from being a lying gold-digger and extortionist.
