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.

Ms. Bloom
Team truth fights for justice. We do not want to see an innocent man being dragged into the dirt. Mr. Gibson has kept quiet and has shown great restraint. An abusive man woud not be abe to control himself. I am not being paid by any public relations firm. I want justice to be served. I will continue to question Ms. Oksana's motives and inconsistent statements.

I wonder if you are representing Ms. Oksana in fmaily court. Are you just PR? If you are just PR, how are you getting paid? PR should have nothing to do with family law. I do not see Judge Gordon basing his ruling on what TMZ posters are saying. Unless you are putting the bill on a credit to be paid later, the only way I can see you getting paid is with Lucia's monthly child support. Getting paid from money that is meant for baby Lucia would be a no no.

It is not difficult to get a story to 1500 messages. There is usually chatter going back and forth. It is not obvious anyone is being paid. They enjoy talking about the case at hand.

@Garnet, lol, imagine Nicholson's sheer horror upon learning whose "gratitude" he narrowly missed.

"...how Jack Nicholson was so moved by her plight and paid for an ex-con security guard to protect her..."

"just a single mother of 2" - what a line of poop. Too many women play the victim card- she's got a history of gold digging - get a job. She's getting 10K a month now in child support and alimony, right? I bet she doesn't even watch her own children. Victim - she's a predator.

1. Oksana should have called the police.
2. Since she do***ented the "alleged" verbal & physical abuse so well, how exactly do you "punch" someone in the face causing veneers to come off without causing quite a bit of damage or broken skin in the mouth?

Hey Team Mel/Truth …

Good morning,
Bonjour,
God morgen,
God morgon,
Goedemorgen,
Guten Morgen,
доброе утро,
Buongiorno,
Bore da,

Looks like it’s going to be another long week. Hmmm. Is it Team Mel/Truth supposed to be the ‘others trying to stomp Oksana down’.

Lisa, honey, there was no stomping necessary. Oksana is her own worst enemy. Give it a week or two … you’ll find out for yourself.

“Mel has a fleet of highly aggressive 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.'"

And what did Lisa think would happen … a tea party?

Business litigation huh … is she saying that Oksana is trying to get her fingers in Mel’s businesses … that’s interesting!

And don’t forget Lisa … that your client HAD a great deal … SHE STOMPED ALL OVER IT.

Lisa Bloom has jumped the shark with this case, and I thought her representing Michael Lohan was bad.

Oksana is nothing but a greedy woman who does NOT DESERVE SUPPORT, she was a girlfriend not a wife. Lisa go away and take Okskanka with you!

ROFLOL.... Boy, Oinky sure knows how to pick em. So glad to see she finally found the bottom feeders that are on her level.

I doubt Harvey gives a rats azz whether Bloom is mad at him or not. Keep reporting both sides of this situation!

Team Mel!

Bloom says, "Oksana is a single mother of two who's gone into debt fighting for simple justice."

Actually Miss Bloom ... Oksana is single mother of two Hollywood actors who's gone into debt to get some publicity.

Lisa is failing in the media blitz/PR spin department, just as those who have gone before her have failed. The reason for the failure is very simple: people do not believe her client.

Oksana has lied far too many times to be taken seriously. I'm reminded of the little boy who cried wolf.

The possible shred of truth in her claims is totally overshadowed by her deceptions.

No one here believes there are 39 lawyers working for Miss Grigorieva at this time. The significance attached to that number is how many she has plowed through. She either has no case(s) or is so difficult to deal with that she is not worth the time and energy.

It is interesting that the only current case is in family court. She has her criminal team on board. but is lacking a family law attorney. No doubt she'll dig up someone to take over for that "inept" (sarcasm) Trope firm. (Apologies to the Trope firm. The sarcasm was intended to reflect on the client, not the litigators.)
