Oksana Grigorieva Switches Lawyers

9/14/2010 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Oksana Grigorieva has officially switched lawyers in her custody war with Mel Gibson.

We've learned Oksana signed a retainer agreement this afternoon, officially hiring Sorrell Trope to replace her existing family law attorneys.

Trope's firm has represented all sorts of A-list celebrities -- including Anna Nicole Smith and Britney Spears.

So far, Oksana has not been able to squeeze an extra penny out of Mel in family court -- she's still getting $5,000 per month in child support plus housing expenses.

This is the second time Oksana has switched legal teams since her custody war with Gibson fired up.

I am so tired of hearing about this woman. If she was smart she would've taken the 15 mil that Mel offered months ago now she is going to be in huge debt paying off her attorneys. This is turned into such an ugly mess. No one wins besides the attorneys..or maybe not she is so far in debt she might have to file bankruptcy and no one will get paid. This guy is a fool to take on this case.

This will cost Mel $500,000- 1 million easily . The judge will order Mel to pay the attorney fees and shes sticking it to him good .

It couldn't happen to a nicer racist .

She should hire them all, she failed so many stratagem to bring Mel down, so she kept trying. This woman has personal vendetta and she won't stop till she totally ruined Mel to the max, she's her own worse enemy. If she needed money badly, why she wasted 350K to lawyers and PR? " Oh wait, that was Mel Gibson money" so she doesn't give a damn.

Oksana should really read Eckhart Tolle's books. He writes about living in the NOW as opposed to living in the state of the ego. He even uses one example. A Zen master was accused of getting a 16 year old girl pregnant. The Zen master said something like: is that so. The girl even gave him the child to take care of. He was criticized by his community. His credibility was ruined. Then ten months later the girl confesses and said it was the teenage boy down the street who was the father. The zen master says: is that so. He probably got some nice gifts from the community for putting up with the ****. I don't totally agree with what the Zen Master put up with but Oksana should really try to move towards the Zen - if you know what I mean.

I am sure there are dating services who could hook her up with a nice doctor for the right price.

Oksana needs to shut the **** up and get back to the kitchen. Shes being obviously greedy, yet people take her side because she is the girl.

jj,

what does it matter if she goes into debtr? She'll get some rich guy to pay it for her or she'll simply go back to Russia, which I think is her main plan anyway--take the money and run only she can't get her hand son the money.

I'd rather see it in the pocket of attorneys than in Oksana's pocket. Mission accomplished.
