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.

Ah desperation is in the air. LOL...OxSanity is swithcing Lawyers out of desperation she is getting no where on her support request being shot down once already, she tried to limit Mel's access to Lucia...FAIL... and she know's she may be stuck with the settlement draft she signed. This is nothing more than a pathetic attempt at salvaging her dreams for a big cash payout...Sorry OxSanity, you will have to come into your dreams of a big payday like normal folks do..The Lottery!

Why does Mel have to keep paying her attorney's? One time maybe. But is he always responsible for them every time she feels like running up a debt?

She is delusional KPCATZ, having Mel daughter out of wedlock, she consider herself as his wife.

and felt she's entitled to a wifely privileged after the break up, eg; divisions of wealth/assets.

Too soft with men!
hehehehe, more of she's using men to financed for her vanity,
She's spoiled rotten. Has delusion of grandeur but she's not going to earned it herself, she wants men to provide it to her.

I started to think maybe she's a closet nympho and likes varieties.

She has no chance, The lawyers are just getting their names in the paper next week they will be gone. Mels case is rock solid. She needs a criminal lawyer now the DA is about to file the case against her. Can you say Jail Time Baby. Then Mel will get custody.

Shouldn't Mel have legal options to fight her grab for money? What she has done with the release of the tapes is DESTROYED his career!! That happened as a direct result of actions by the mother of his child! She has damaged Mel's future and present earning capacity by setting up the recording and releasing them. I don't know the family law, but seems like destroying a person's career, and that the fact that the person is the father of your child, and your child is a newborn who needs financial stability, should give Mel legal options. HE should be able to care for his child, but the woman should not benefit from her evil acts. I mean, the tapes are manipulated, she didn't call the police, moved to shelter, sought refuge with family to escape abuse. No, this is very different! Seems that she hates Mel and is ought to destroy him and maybe she has.
