Oksana Grigorieva will file a lawsuit against Mel Gibson alleging -- among other things -- battery, emotional distress and defamation ... TMZ has learned.

0916_oksana_lawyers_EX_01

Sources tell us Oksana has hired Martin Garbus and Daniel Horowitz  ... two formidable lawyers who have been around the block in celebrity cases. Garbus has defended Robert Redford, Al Pacino, and Spike Lee -- and both he and Horowitz rank among America's top litigators.

We're told Garbus and Horowitz will represent almost all things Oksana -- they will be her reps in connection with the domestic violence investigation as well as the extortion probe.

In addition to the civil suit, we're told Garbus and Horowitz will represent Oksana in her music career -- specifically, they will challenge Gibson, who they claim is blocking the release of Oksana's music.

As for the civil battery case against Gibson -- sources tell us the plan is to file it by the end of the year.

Bingo the lawyers hit the jackpot. She will get nothing. But the bloodsuckers will get fees. Smart move on the Lawyers part. More stupid moves on her part. She is a dumb whore.

I think Carol summed it up beautifully:

I can not believe this money hungry bitch. She is using this little girl just like she used her son to get money. If you asked me both kids should be taken from her and given to their fathers. Let the bitch go back to Russia (if they will have her) and get a job like the rest of the world.

DANIEL HOROWITZ is FEROCIOUS inside the courtroom & negotiating room.

He is dedicated to his Clients & true to his heart.

Daniel Horowitz is sweet as a Teddy Bear outside the Courtroom & aggressive as a Grizzly Bear inside.

HOROWITZ = GREAT CHOICE !!

Horowitz must be due for some sort of punishment from God because he just took on a sociopath for a client. When it's over he'll change his name to Horrorwitless. She'll addle his dam.n brain and he'll have PTSD... and maybe herpes.

It's called MONEY....the guys clearly know what they're getting into and they may have access to info that has yet to surface so they COULD quite possibly have damaging info that may sway this Oksana's way and destroy/deface Mel.
