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.

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.

Oksy has setup every guy she's ever dated, going back to the first sucker she married back in Russia. Every guy she's ever been associated with has been screwed over, used, and thrown to the curb. Look at her track record, there aren't any exceptions. Every single guy gets the same exact treatment.

Too true. Only now, she's gone global. EVERYONE knows what she's capable of. After this is over, she'll be a pariah. And to think she could have had access to $15mil. Talk about shi**ing in your own nest! (I'm glad she has)

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.

It has become a family affair. Now GA's offspring is there to take instruction from mama to help LB keep the stories straight. Lisa won't throw mama off the train but Ox may throw both of them under the bus. This reeks of utter BS. Someone needs to bring this to a screeching halt IMO.

Soon she'll be able to go straight to bankruptcy court without passing go! No one needs 39 lawyers if they are telling the truth to fight their case - So the fact is she is lieing and no one beleives her -

@ ThinkingWoman

Was thinking the same thing...
Who is the bully here??!
Mel is sitting tight with his group of lawyers he has had from day one, not saying one negative word about this *****.

Seriously, how can anyone ever believe her?
Hang in there, Mel, you´ll come out on top of all this!

Remember her question on People video "How much is he going to spend to ruin me , ruin my name" This is deliberate. Hope Mel's Lawyers play that to the Judge.
