Oksana's Newest Lawyer

Angry at Mel, TMZ

10/17/2010 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva's latest addition to her legal team is lashing out after our story yesterday -- that Oksana has had at least 39 lawyers working for her in her legal war with Mel Gibson -- claiming Mel has an armada of lawyers and others trying to stomp Oksana down.

Lisa Bloom claims "Mel has a fleet of highly aggressive law firms fighting her at every turn, including one which calls itself a '450+ lawyer business litigation firm -- the largest in the United States devoted solely to business litigation.'" 

Although the current war is over custody, support and alleged crimes and not business litigation, Bloom adds, "This is only one of at least four known major law firms behind the scenes, as well as publicists, marketers, and public relations agencies."  Bloom says, "Oksana is a single mother of two who's gone into debt fighting for simple justice."

TMZ broke the story ... at least 18 of Oksana's lawyers have submitted bills to the court totaling more than $1 million, and they've asked the judge to make Mel foot the bill.

Bloom says Oksana has had only "a handful" of different law firms in this case, adding, "Though occasionally other lawyers in their firms may have pitched in."  Bloom says, "It is totally false to say she's had 39 lawyers."  We have listed all 39 lawyers -- Bloom has not said which of the 39 she believes were not working on the case.

Yea, whatever. Good luck defending that pathological lying, conniving gold-digger, Lisa.
I hope she gets prison time for extortion.

Will be interesting if Bloom will last. She may end up on that list.

Well, it´s pretty obvious Mel would have a fleet of good lawyers. I seriously doubt that he has changed 39 times, though.
And as for "stomping Oksana down" - that´s their job. But they have class and dignity enough to do it the way it should be done: behind locked doors.

A non truthful lawyer, go figure.

How are you going to spin the extortion Ms. Bloom, or do you have to hire another lawyer to figure that one out?

PS. Good luck getting paid!

Bloom's nose grows long from lying that she has to file the tip with sandpaper every night.

That'll be funny.
I didn't know where else Oksana can go to get another lawyer or lower as she calls it. I mean she is scraping the bottom of the barrel here.

Lisa acts like no one followed this case before she arrived on the scene...she may not have 39 lawyers employed at once but we have watched her go through them one by one.

Lisa is a an absolute fool and a liar. Oksana can not be resurrected from the history of her past and her multiple changing stories.

The American people are sick of liars and people who expect something for nothing. Oksana is a mother only for giving birth to her two meal tickets.

As much as I'd love Mel's laywers to respond to all of these pr moves that have been going on for months, I'm so glad they don't.

Karma is coming.
