Oksana Grigorieva Fires More Lawyers

9/15/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva is eviscerating her legal team -- TMZ has learned she's fired her criminal defense lawyers ... not necessarily a good thing when you're under criminal investigation.

Oksana Grigorieva Lawyer
We're told Grigorieva gave her seasoned criminal defense lawyers Mary Fulginiti and James Spertus their walking papers yesterday, and sources say the breakup was "ugly."

Fulginiti and Spertus were handling, among other things, the L.A. County Sheriff's Department criminal investigation into Mel Gibson's claim that Oksana tried to extort him.

The firings leave Oksana vulnerable, without a lawyer to represent her in what we're told is a "serious" criminal investigation.

Just days ago Grigorieva switched family law attorneys -- hiring Sorrell Trope's firm.

Who knew Oksana studied Thomas Jefferson -- "A little rebellion now and then is a good thing."

THIRD!!

I knew this was coming. She is getting rid of people who are costing her money. She is really trying hard for that baby momma money. And she needs everything she can get to go towards that fight.

Sorell probably "urged" her to do it.

Does that woman have a brain? What on earth is she doing? What can this lawyer do for her that the other two couldn't?

Cool- you only fire your lawyers when they tell you something you don't want to hear...in her case, it was probably "How do you look in stripes?"!!! :)

Maybe her lawyer will settle out of court? Maybe she realized that lawyer are costly and might beg Mel Forgiveness and settled out of court plus public apology.

I am reaching here :P

After working with Oksana, those lawyers probably could sympathize with Mel's frustration.

It doesn't surprise me. Her expertise is to make everyone near her miserable, and they all leave her eventually.

Seems like she is shopping for the lawyers who will tell her what she wants to hear. Could be a long shop.

Sooner or later, she won't have many people left on her sides.
She should get rid of her self serving family, I think they are the catalyst of her sinister actions.

This ho is not a laughing stock, she is insane. She is obsessed with Mel's money. Let her do these silly things, people see through her now. Mel will win the Lucia's custody. The girl will be brought up properly, not like her mother-prostitute.
