Oksana's New Lawyer -- Lucky Number 40

10/18/2010 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva showed up to court this morning for a hearing in her child support case with Mel Gibson -- and wouldn't you know it ... she has a new lawyer!

1018_oksana_lawyer_EX_Getty_01
The new man in Oksana's life is Mitchell Jacobs -- a family law attorney who has been a Board Certified Family Law Specialist since 1986.

We're told Jacobs was brought in because today's hearing involves a certain technicality and they reached out to Jacobs because he's a family law specialist.

Sources say it is unclear whether Jacobs will remain on full-time.

1018_grigorieva_tmz_small_vAs we first reported, Oksana has used 39 different lawyers so far in her child support case with Mel Gibson. The latest point of contention -- whether the judge's ruling that Mel has to amp up his child support payments to $20,000/month includes the housing payments Mel has been making.

As the old saying goes, 40th time is a charm.

There's still something i don't get about this freak show circus that's going on...

what's in it for these lawyers that after...oh say, EIGHT (and that's a modest number) that any lawyer would want to touch this?

is it a game to them? or is the entire travelling flea circus just playing US!

I'm so glad Lucia is a baby and not able to comprehend what's going on around her, and I hope her son is in therapy because this mudslinging her lawyers and her are doing will take it's toll on her children. I feel just sick for them.

If what Lisa Bloom said that Lucia appears agitated when she returns to Ox, it would indicate that she is not happy to go back to an atmosphere that she senses is filled with turmoil. Obviously, Ox is continually agitated and trying to figure out ways to get more publicity and destroy Mel, while Mel appears to have just left this in the hands of his attorneys. Besides the fact that Mel is winning in the court of public opinion thanks to Ox...he probably is much more relaxed with the baby.

I guess what I am trying to say is the baby is being affected by the turmoil her mother has surrounding her.

I thought MG would never have another role in a movie?


"""""""""""""
Mel Gibson's strategy for getting back in the public's good graces may involve a few laughs.

The Braveheart Oscar winner has been laying low while he deals with the legal hang-ups and backlash surrounding his bitter split wih baby mama Oksana Grigorieva, but now the star has landed a cameo in The Hangover 2 as a Bangkok tattoo artist.

Sources tell the New York Post the appearance is a "done deal," adding "Mel is expected to film his role in two weeks."

Anything is possible. There are women who give birth at 70! But, who is talking about giving birth here?

I still think once this hell-hound gets through with him, she'll turn around and think she can continue her life but she is SO wrong...

she has turned so many people against her she's never going to find a job, she'll never sell enough records to support her lifestyle, she'll never get another man who isn't a complete a.s.s.h.o.l.e!

that's why she's fighting tooth and nail now... she needs the money because otherwise she's toast... she's screwed when her son turns 18 and has gotten to the point where he can't stand the sight of her, and moves back to britain

either way... she dug her own grave, we're all just goin to sit and watch with popcorn until she rolls herself into it

Well I wonder why you are so hateful towards the pro-Mel posters here. You don't appear to be blindly supportive of Oksana as some are. I don't get it - why attack people who are pro Mel?

Well, it is true about baby being agitated and knowing where she/he wants to be. If you ever have a baby that does this about going to a babysitter or have a older toddler sister/brother that can talk, listen very carefully to what they are telling you. Sometimes, it isn't that the child wants to go stay with 'Grandma', it is because they are being treated mean to the point of abuse at the babysitters...fact. (Guilt 20 years later for not catching what my kids were trying to say, it was the babysitter's husband that just started staying at the home because of loss of job..treated my kids horribly. A one year KNOWS, mine screamed and his older bro kept saying, "wanna go to Grandma's!")
I'm saying Lucia doesn't want to go the home to Sherman Oaks, back to Oksana.
