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.

I still don't understand the child custody. Gibson has beyond proven he's never been a threat to his daughter. They both have joint custody. She need's to go through 40 lawyers to get an additional 15k per month?

Does she ever worry about being deported. When does her visa expire? She's not married, certinly not working and not going to school.

Lucia is American Ox is not.

I love the picture, if you look under "Deer in Headlights" in Wikipedia his picture shows up. He's probably never had a hummer from a Russian pro with 35 years experience, heck he probably can't do anything but nod about now...

Poor guy, he'll never see it coming...

LOL Dam Bitch! 40 bloody freaking lawyers suing Mel and you want Mel to pay for them all? What are you retarded, Oksana?

I find it ironic that this hussy isn't paying for any of these attornies out of her own pocket and relying on Mel Gibson dumb arse to pay for them instead. I still ask the question, was she married to Mel? As much as I think Mel is a disgusting pig, he doesn't deserve to pay lawyers to sue him or to pay for her ridiculous freeloading lifestyle.

Get a job Oksana, pay for your own darn attorney and buy your own home, get out of Mel's!

He's no dummy. He wants to be able to bill the court for a couple of hundred thou like everyone else. I would too. This won't stop until the judge gets some balls!

When this court business ends and Lucia is Eighteen, she can finally just walk out on mommie dearest and join her loving family who wants nothing from her, but herself. This case will be going on forever. It's a joke for many of us who sit and wonder what the judicial system really is all about.

You know guys, this is becoming a ROUTINE, isn't it?

Here is Mr. Jacobs martindale page. His speciality is ONLY LISTED AS THE GENERAL "FAMILY LAW"

http://www.martindale.com/Mitchell-A-Jacobs/120783-lawyer.htm


Here is the his CA Bar Card:

http://members.calbar.ca.gov/fal/Member/Detail/100934

He has been practicing law since 1981. Guess the first five years he didn't concentrate in FAMILY LAW? TMZ used the date 1986.

His law school was California Western SOL; San Diego CA.


Here is his practice's website. His firm is in Agoura Hills.


http://www.jacobsfamilylaw.com/lawyer-attorney-1598881.html

In his bio two things stood out. He has worked as a MEDIATOR/ARBITRATOR and HE REGULARLY contributes to the DAILY JOURNAL.

For those who don't know what that particular publication is, it is a trade publication for ATTORNEYS. Sort of like VARIETY for the legal set. Requires a subscription -

I will keep looking a bit.

maybe shyone or one of the legal eagles can shed some light on what this "special area" pr "technicality" this article is hinting could be? I wonder if the answers can be found inside the pages of the DAILY JOURNAL?

Did I miss it? Did the judge at any time say she had carte blanche on how much she is allowed to spend on lawyers? What is the norm for lawyer expense in a child custody case?
