Oksana's $15 Million Lawyer Goes After Her

2/19/2011 5:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ...the lawyer who negotiated the $15 million settlement with Oksana Grigorieva -- the settlement she signed and then disavowed -- is going after her for his fee.

Eric George has initiated legal action against Mel Gibson's ex, claiming he did his job in securing a settlement, and the fact that she later disavowed it does not let her off the hook in paying his fee.

According to arbitration documents -- obtained by TMZ -- George's firm is entitled to 10% of the compensation he won for Oksana.  The total sum of the settlement was $15 million, but we're told George's fee did not include a percentage of the portion that was earmarked for child support.

Oksana has refused to pay George and filed legal docs trying to dismiss his claim, but we've learned that motion was denied. 

The D.A. is now considering whether to file extortion charges against Oksana, with Mel's camp claiming she used the explosive audio tapes as leverage to make the $15 million deal -- threatening to release them if she didn't get paid.

If KH was at OG/Horowitz meetings, then yes, attorney client privilege is waived with Horowitz. It would also be waived regarding things OG said publicly about the case.

Side note...recall Horowitz jumping up and down screaming when EG was going to the DA? Recall that Horowitz was trying to shut EG up even though OG has waived attorney client privilege with EG before the court? I think OG just wanted EG to provide testimony about what SHE wanted and nothing else.

Didn't the LA Times article say there were in mediation? Does this mean the mediation failed and now he's suing? Will there be court do***ents, etc? She's going DOWN (and probably not in the way she's accustomed to).

I would believe that he sued and the Judge ordered the parties to mediation to see if a settlement could be reached before the suit had to proceed further... no settlement was able to be achieved so the lawsuit is proceeding... My take on it..

I think that's pretty good, SD. OG may not have 1.5 million, but if EG prevails, he can get a judgment and attach to her bank account, jewelry, etc. Also, mediation means the parties try and work it out themselves, whereas arbitration is where a third party takes both sides under consideration and makes a determination.
