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.

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.

Tweety Mel is in good position of winning his case.
1) he obeyed the gag order
2) he haven't spoken to the media about Oksana.
3) he did more to Oksana than any of her previous paramour.

If he lost 20 millions to his lawyers its nothing to him, as long as his reputation has been save.

They are doing nothing more than looking for a mistrial if she gets charged with extortion

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

No worries chunx, I agree with you the media was on her side at the beginning but if you look at the media now, you rarely hear much about the with the eception of some online media and of course the celeb site and entertainment sites that have been following this as it goes on, it's defiently been a drastic change from when it all began

@Russian,

Bless your heart, perhaps OG on a short leash in a nice chilly Gulag, as entertainment for other prisoners, coldest most isolated area of Siberia or more north. No cell phone, computer or lawyers, no media, no MG or her own children to abuse.

btw, hello to all team mel/team truth members here, nice to see new members here as well. anyone with a brain can see that this woman isn't a battered victim, because if 39 lawyers, some of whom are considered to be the best of the best in what they do, can't win her case in court then that must mean her case is nothing more than pure b.s.

hellnurse, when I heard the 1st and 2nd tape, I was pretty disgusted of Mel.
But when Rol was releasing the 3rd and so on, I was suspicious.

I then formed an opinion on 5th tapes that is a set up for extortions.

I think Mel and his lawyers have very good things to come up with in court and it will be the end of Oksana. Dont think this will ruin Mels life or career. This is a break in his life and soon he will go on, stronger than ever. But its a pity that he has to share parenthood with this woman!

Do you know what family court Judges despise? Just what happend today. Making one parent look bad in the eye's of the court- but this one is doing it to the world.
For the sake of Lucia this Judge wants these two people to stop the bs and get along.
