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.

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.

Is it me or does she look like Octomom and I guess she needs enough of Mel's money to feed 8.

Good thing Mel has his lawyers already hired as Oksana is poisoning the well. She's looking nuttier by the day and I hope Mel will not be held responsible for this woman's lawyer hopping. It is unreasonable. Besides, outside of the custody case, why should Mel be responsible for her other lawyer bills. The judge needs to put the brakes on this out of control, vengeful woman.

The problem is, she'll keep hiring and firing them as long as the court makes Mel pay for them. Why not, like her house, car, food, insurance, nannies, and housekeepers, Mel's paying for everything. This won't end until the judge makes it stop, and I don't think he's in a hurry now that Horo is on board. I wonder what the number will be up to by January? We should start taking bets.

Just put her in jail ! I hope her sleazy lawyers don't get paid ! Next time they'll learn not to work for an unemployed bum just because she says she can steal the money to pay them from her ex-boyfriend ! Duh !

Who cares? When I listen to the tapes I find it amazing she can be so calm, cool & collected when she is speaking to Mel & he is so pissed off....I think there are two sides to every story then there is the truth. As there are two sides of conversations & what part of the truth is missing of the tapes as to when, why & how he got so pissed off?

Sounds like Mel was set up.

Any new lawyers that agree to rep her now should not be allowed to bill the court. They have to know by now they will be just wasting Mel's money and the court's time if they rep her.

Exactly ! Gloria Allred was probably helping her plan this from Day 1 and I bet there are other criminals (besides Gloria) who are in on it too.
