Oksana

Russian Immigrant with

39 Lawyers

10/17/2010 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Oksana Grigorieva -- who has said she doesn't have the power to fight the Mel Gibson machine -- has hired a grand total of 39 (THIRTY-NINE) lawyers so far ... to wage legal war on her behalf.

1015-oksana-lawyer-tally-credit
All 39 lawyers have been doing legal work for Oksana in her fight with Mel.  Even more shocking, we know at least 18 of the 39 lawyers have submitted more than $1 million in legal bills to the court ... and they're asking the judge to make Mel pay the tab.

As for the 39 lawyers who have jumped on board team Oksana, they include: Lisa Bloom, Martin Garbus, Daniel Horowitz, Eric George, Sonia Lee, Robin Sax, John Carlson, James Spertus, Ezra Landes, Mary Fulginiti, Amy Hinkley, Dan O'Malley, Suzie Obeda and Amanda Touchton.

But there's more ... the firm of Trope and Trope has put the following lawyers on Oksana's case:  Sorrell Trope, Anne Kiley, Angela Harris, Bret Hunter, Hillary Slevin, James Durant, John Ellis, Jennifer Leong, Jonathan Pakravan, Katie Heersema, Lori Howe, Melanie Shornick, Mark Patt, Sophie Bidet, Sarah Luetto, Thomas Dunlap and Tara Scott.

And, the firm of Freid and Goldsman have put the following lawyers on Team Oksana: Manley Freid, Gary Cohen, Marci Levine, Janet Kaplan, Cori Steinberg, Susan Park, Jill Foley Alexander and Kristine Capell.

And the irony -- at the moment Oksana has no family law attorney repping her ... almost all of them have either been fired or quit.

Thanks, KoalaBabe!
I just want Judge will understand properly Mel Gibson's rant on tapes.
And more-I think Mel Gibson should get some medal for standing her for 3 years and paying all her bills on the top. Here people can't stand her even for good money...

Hi,Cat,
I'm from Siberia, if you'll send to us this creature(Oks), she will be on the short leashes. Only way to deal with this ukranians...

After seeing how much of a control freak Oksy is, do you really think she'd let somebody else handle the tape leak? Come on...

It is what it is, the same way she dubbed her voice over Mels on the tapes.

There is no way she wasn't going to "control" that scenario, a two way conversation was never in the cards.

She wound Mel up [and God knows what she really said to him and in what context it was said] and then she hired a pro to edit the raw recordings, and later dub her voice in with a Studio Microphone. The fix was in from the beginning.

Come on, there was no way she was going to risk her idiot sister or mother handing over that very expensive "evidence".
Her ego wouldn't allow it.

Tweety no can sue you for expressing non defamatory remarks. Oksana pretty much blabbed about this case so we can argue with the points anywhere.

Can you imagine...Mel has to deal with this woman for the next 17 years. What a nightmare. I'm amazed the judge hasn't ordered a psych eval on her yet.

Hi ya KB, HN, wondering, chunx , Sweet..and those I may have missed

hello shuffledemon, glad team mel/team truth is still here. the more this case drags on, the more it becomes painfully clear that oksana was never the victim that the media portrayed her to be. s

There is a reason for everything...

Is it a Coincedence that the Judge and Horo are pals?
Is it a Coincedence that the case is dragging on, conveniently through the elections?
Is it a Coincedence that Mel is getting tapped for Oksy's legal fees, over and over and over and over?
Is it a Coincedence that Oksy breaks the gag order every morning, 7 days a week?


The answer is no.

The only way to keep Lucia happy is 6 months with Mel and 6 months with her.

Exactly KB
I think a few people were a bit spooked. I hope they don't stay away. Nothing will stop me posting here and everyone right or wrong is entitled to an opinion.
I do sometimes wonder though given that most of us here are MG supporters are there a few oksana trolls trying to upset the apple cart.

Genna I am hoping the judge will order a psychiatrist evaluation on Oksana. I have this distinct feeling she sort of detached from reality of this case. She still feels she is Mel Gibson wife.
