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.

1017-oksana-grigorieva-lisa-bloom-getty-ex-credit
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.

"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."

My favorite quote from the above story! LOL

If Lisa Bloom were lying, her nose would grow.
Take one look....


As long as Horo has his Brojudge on the case, they will all get paid, by Mel. So it's just a matter of Lisa convincing Oksana she's worth the money by defending her need for a mere 40 attorneys.

Lisa says evil Mel has hundreds, no thousands, no millions of laywers all over the world, teaming up against a poor, innocent, abused, Russian girl who's being raped by the media.

Besides Lisa says that is she tells a lie her nose will grow.
Oooops, I guess it's too late for that one...

"Russian Immigrant" is TMZ's racistic way to expose Oksana to their witch hunting forum right now. Mother to a baby with a powerful & abusive American oligarch is no easy task.

Bill Zwecker wrote in Chicago Sun-Times 14/09/2010:

"In the words of a veteran Hollywood agent who knows Gibson: Well, in Hollywood, if you're smart, you don't pick a fight with someone who has a bottomless bank account. The agent's point: Gibson has made it his mission to destroy Grigorieva and will spare no expense to see her destroyed financially. Even though many despise Gibson in Hollywood, he still wields tremendous power, something that has led many top attorneys to decline representing Grigorieva.”

SNORTTY, SMOKING CRACK ISN'T A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE CHOICE!

Greedisana has "ABSOLUTELY NO ONE TO BLAME EXCEPT, HERSELF"! She chose to expose herself, her children and other innocent parties by initiating this "TWISTED MEDIA CIRCUS" that Mel Gibson went to considerable lengths to avoid. She even refused to respect "A COURT MANDATED RESTRAINING ORDER" that was issued to protect "the privacy of everyone involved", including, HERSELF! She willingly placed a "BULLS EYE" on her own behind because she thought that "crying wolf and playing the DV card" would easily get her the substantial financial compensation that she "WASN'T LEGALLY ENTITLED TO UNDER NORMAL CIR***STANCES".

The fact that Greedisana has gone through an estimated 39 lawyers doesn't readily support Mr. Zwecker's assessment of the statement made by this Hollywood insider. It's quite obvious that her connection to Mel Gibson has afforded her some of the best legal representation in Hollywood. Her astounding "ARROGANCE, GREED and STUPIDITY" has prompted her to make choices in which she's torpedoed her own credibility. She has exposed herself to be nothing more than a "CONNIVING BOTTOM FEEDER" who has no problem "STIFFING HER ATTORNEYS". This woman seems to have an "OVERLY INFLATED" sense of entitlement that's an "ABSOLUTE INSULT" to "any adult with a nickel's worth of common sense".

Oksana Grigorieva is a prime example of the "DISGUSTING" stereotypical foreigner who "PREYS ON THE GOODWILL" of people who try to befriend her. Regardless of the nature of her relationships, when this woman can't have her way, she ruthlessly "BURNS AND DISCARDS" people like garbage. In a karmic sense, "WE'RE ALL MASTERS OF OUR OWN DESTINIES" and have to accept the "consequences of our actions". When a person "burns all of their bridges", they have to be prepared "to handle their business like a professional". This woman's lack of "PROFESSIONALISM AND ETHICS" will cement her downfall! If she's considered to be a "PARIAH", SHE ONLY HAS HERSELF TO BLAME!!!

Apparently Ms. Bloom thinks Mel's lawyers tricked Oksana into doing the People magazine interview. And hey also forced her do the interview with ROL in the parking lot. And obviously it was Mel's lawyers who leaked the tapes not Oksana. Wow! Lisa is right it was Mel's lawyers who have beaten Oksana down.

NOT!

Mel has a "fleet" of attorneys. Of course he does, for his business dealings, it's probably because he's worth almost a billion dollars and has multiple business ventures.

However he only has a small firm with a great reputation defending him against this "Russian Call Girl of the Stars". That's why he does whatever the court asks, even pays Oksy's bills when asked, and never ever violates the gag order. He has been a perfect gentlemen to the court and to Oksy's team from day one.

In comparison Oksy can't make it through breakfast without violating the gag order or slandering Mel. Is anyone surprised she's gone through 39 different attorneys from 14 different law offices in 6 months.

Lisa Bloom is just the flavor of the month, I'm sure she'll be billing as fast as she can to prepare for the day Oksy throws her under the bus too. That day is coming...

Bloom's strategy to win sympathy for her client won't work on this case.

Oksana can be as poor as she wants. Mel didn't create it. She did it on herself. She was the one got on his back and tossed him in the public.

Good now that we know they both read TMZ...

Dear Lisa

Mel can hire satan for all I care - it's his money!!!! Oxtail was not his wife just a tail. She should have used her meal ticket and accepted the 15mil. You will be on that list three weeks tops.

Now take that, put it in a pipe and smoke it --- ps also build a bridge and get over it.

waka Dan Horowitz tried the same stratagem and backfire big time, I wonder why Lisa revisiting Dan Horowitz failed handiwork?

Maybe she felt being female PR spinners, we are readily grabbed her story and believe it 100%.

Dream on Lisa!!

The only attorney that's going to stick it out till the end is Horowitz. He's the one with the juice in court, the rest of them are for show and they are expendable. Think about it, right now she could hire 100 attorneys because their FREE.

Of course...
Once the court stops giving her unlimited access to Mel's money to pay for her "fleet" of attorney's, they will all fall by the wayside, one by one. In the end, the only representation that really counts is Horowitz, and even Oksy knows it.
