Oksana Grigorieva Settles With First Lawyer

3/18/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva and her very first lawyer settled their legal dispute over fees, TMZ has learned.

Eric George, a prominent Beverly Hills attorney, scored a $15 million settlement last May for Oksana in her custody dispute with Mel Gibson. Oksana later disavowed the settlement, but George claimed he had sealed the deal and was entitled to his 10% fee.

George's firm and Oksana have been fighting it out in arbitration, but we've learned the case settled Thursday. George and Daniel Horowitz, Oksana's current lawyer, tell TMZ, George and Oksana "have in good faith resolved all matters between them and will proceed cooperatively in the future."

The financial terms of the settlement are under wraps.

Well I think she had no choice but to settle...I couldn;'t see her really getting out of it..He got her the result she wanted, the fact that she changed her mind isn't his fault, so he did what he was asked to do and I am sure after the last Judge denied her request to toss this, she knew there was no other option but to settle because going to court would have cost her more...so I don't think this is a suprise

and as for HorroDitz statement, I wouldn't read that much into it... that sounds more like him trying to put a positive spin on the settlement...I mean really if you were EG and she wanted you to work further for her would you?...lol..I doubt he is going to do more work for someone who backed out on a signed deal then had her next lawyer make veiled comments that EG had failed to properly instruct and advise his client in those negotiations...and then tried to stiff him on monies owed....so I doubt will see EG on Team OxyMoron anytime in the future...

Thanks, zooma, for the article. The picture was interesting. They sure look 'comfortable' for retired teachers. Hmmmmmmm.

All Horowitz had to figure out was how to get George on the payments as well.

I'm amused by the release of a neutral joint statement.

I've seen stuff like that coming out of hostile take overs.

So the Chucky (Chernukha) scammers have decided to threaten Hanna and William. What happened to the hookers they were looking for?

The scary thing is that old Ludmilla Chucky is baaaaack in LA.

Be afraid, be very afraid.

Mel Gibson Moves to Strip Oksana Grigorieva of Custody of Lucia
March 18th, 2011 9:27 AM by Free Britney

Perhaps this explains why Mel Gibson's mug shot painted such a grumpy, serious picture of the man this week. He's preparing for an all-out legal war.

The actor's lawyers will appear in court Monday and ask the judge in his custody battle to award him sole custody of Lucia, according to court papers.

Mel pleaded no contest to battery last week, ending a year-long saga of nasty allegations from Lucia's mother and Gibson's ex, Oksana Grigorieva.

But that was really just the conclusion of the first chapter.

Oksana, Mel Pic

In addition to attempting to take custody away from Oksana, Mel Gibson's lawyers will ask Judge Scott Gordon to award her visitation only with a monitor.

Gibson, whose no contest plea is NOT an admission of guilt (he denies her allegations), also wants the judge to deny Oksana overnight visits with the baby.

Mel's lawyers argue in the court do***ents that Oksana's "false and derogatory statements" about Mel show she is not acting in the best interests of Lucia.

Oksana has trashed him once again this week, even after Judge Gordon has warned her in the past that she could lose custody if she talked to the media.

This comes after the Mel Gibson tapes, too. Oksana was not charged with extortion, to Mel's dismay, but her shadiness in recording him is beyond dispute.
