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.

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.

I agree with you but sooner or later the Judge is going to deem some of the Lawyers and their fee's to not be Mel's expense and that will mean either OxSanity has to foot the bill or they bail, she is treading down a slippery slope.

Michael please don't say that, we are going to sue Oksana for sleeps depravations. We hardly sleeps when this case started.

Morning Natasja:) Hugs and Hello Michael!


Good Morning!

Just try to remember, this guy makes over $500 per hour.
I'm pretty sure he has extra staff on too, focusing exclusively on Oksy's latest story update/rant.

I'm serious, he is making serious bank off of this thing and I'm guessing he will do whatever it takes to keep the money train rolling. Guilt or Innocense means nothing to a pro like Horo, it's all about the bottom line.

What a funny picture of Oks.! She needs a lot of lawyers to fight Mel...But I think it will not help. She is a shame on herself. Go Mel, go!

Inglorious Allwrong, the gutter snipe and media whore is an EXPERT at public character assassination, its her real specialty! Wonder why she isn't being investigated for being an accessory to extortion charges? She is also the one that is most likely have orchestrated the "leak of the tapes" as well? I'm guessing that she has been laughing her a$$ off persecuting Gibson to pay him back for his "Jewish Rant" ...

I am astonished that she hasn't ever been called to account on her putting her own clients in harms way to achieve her own political purpose like VIOLET KOWAL(see post 47) and exposing the ex-Whitman housekeeper (who knows what's going to happen there, Gloria's goal was accomplished by trashing Whitman publicly). Why is she above the law? Why is she not being prosecuted for blatant misconduct or even better as a serial extortionist? Her goal with the Russian Puke is clearly to ruin Mel Gibson, Professionally and Financially no matter whether a crime has been committed or not (personally, I think the whole f*cking case against him is a bullsh*t Allred hallucination. The Russian Whore is a pawn, Allred is the architect. Her footprint is all over the insanity that has been orchestrated to achieve her purpose. She is the psychotic that it running this piece of **** case against Gibson.

Think about this, how does an "immigrant nobody" get to "dominate" and abuse the US Justice system and bilk millions from it while blatantly engaged in a string of criminal activities and hasn't seen the inside of a jail cell ? I think she may but have my doubts whether Allred will even though she may be the "ringleader" of the criminal behavior.
