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 they all underestimated Mel and are at a loss what to do now.

Tweety, I am hoping this case will go to court next week.
DA ***** footing doesn't sit well with me, there is too much politics on this case.

I think it's comical that she is going thru so many Lawyers, that seem's really symptamatic of what kind of client she is more than anything. It isn't really any wonder that Sorrel Trope and his team wanted out two weeks earlier, and that isn't too long after they were hired.

Hmm.. come to think of it, I wonder if Steve Jaffe is there or if he went with Eric George out the door..

Mel has nothing to lose anymore hellnurse, all he have to do just sit and watched Oksana's lips flapped.

After all she pretty much gutted him.
Gutted him and expect him to pay for her PR works hehehehe.

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"
There is alot of truth to this. I also think Mr. Gibson will be the one to take her down.

Allred did not report a crime
Allred did not report an attmepted murder
She encouraged a client to overlook it to testify for another client.

The problem is there is an election around the corner, and people like Horo and Gloria hold a lot of cards on a lot of people around town. Why do you think this joke of a trial had dragged on forever.

Nobody wants to cross either of them, especially with an election only weeks away. This thing will drag on as long as they want it to, unless somebody upstairs finally says enough is enough. Sad but true, ask any of the laywers following this forum, it's all about money and politics.

This thing stopped being about Mel or the Russian "Callgirl to the Stars" months ago.

I don't think there was 3rd party leaked the tapes hellnurse.
I am pretty sure Oksana did that herself, maybe with her sister help.

She is very vindictive so the bucks stopped on her doorsteps.

I agree, this case is being used in a number of ways. It's less to do with the issues and more of a political football.
