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.

Morning all...just got home a little while ago and need to be back up in 3 hours.

Looks like my comment about Oinky's MO of past conquests has stirred up a lot of talk.

You all have done your homework well.

Dalton
Blomqvist

Oriti
Foster
Gibson
(and a few un-named)

They have all been been extorted by Oinky in one way or another. That's how she works.

Back for a few minutes before I say goodnight.

1) Kung Pow...LOVE IT! I'd never heard of it before we rented it. Hahaha - you know when in really badly dubbed movies the audio doesn't match the movement of the lips? It was so funny when you SEE the dog bark but there's no sound and then 2 seconds later you HEAR the actual audio of him barking.

2) I didn't find where Sweetie and KB had a blow out and I don't think I want to. I've grown very fond of a lot of posters, especially of both of them. I do, though, find TMZG's seething posts to be malevolent. Really, really creepy.

Sweet dreams everyone.

1301. The American tax payers should be happy to finally see this guy get locked up. Posted at 7:26 PM on Oct 16, 2010 by dotty

Now we know why there are so many innocent people convicted and sitting in U.S. prisons in this country, people like Dotty was sitting on their juries. DNA doesn't lie, even when Gloria Alred throws a fit and doesn't like it.

@Hellnurse - not even close.

@Sweet So let's see your proof of that statement on #990. I just read the cohab again. This is completely inaccurate.

"Who in its right mind will give someone they barely know, and that they are fighting against already, in November 2009, a all free all paid deal for 21 years, with gas and car paid and insurrance and docs and specialists and repairs and food and clothes and jewelry and entertainement and travels and phone bills and so on and credit card covered, for 21 years??!!"

And just how many lawywers does Mel Gibson have at his disposal? Everyone forgets that Mel Gibson is rich and has scores of top notch attorneys to fight her. Do you think she has a chance against him by picking out a lawyer from the Yellow Pages? People, don't be so ignorant, think please, it's not illegal yet.

Why is it that no one yet has asked about how many times Oksana has been deposed by Mel's lawyers, yet Mel has not complied with either providing a deposition date when he would be available, or paid the court ordered increase in child support? I work in the legal field, and if you do not show up for deposition, unless you have a valid excuse (and you have to provide a date), you can be penalized by the court. Same as with child support. You know when you stall that? When you have attorneys on your behalf filing motion after motion to keep the issue going. You know how much that costs every time you do that? A lot of money. When you can afford the best legal help, believe, it makes a difference. Case in point, OJ Simpson. Enough said.

redvixen: there hasn't been ANY lawyer on Ox's team long enough to set up and take a depo from Mel. Duh.

Why don't you try thinking first before blindly attacking? Learn the FACTS.
