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.

Go Mel! Okasana clearly had an agenda. How distraugt could she have been if she did the Larry King interview and people magazine (with pictures in her nightie too!).She never cried once and she sound like she googled info on domestic violence victims before she did the interview so she knew how the victims felt. The pictures of her smiling without the veneers is probably the original picture the dentist took when she first got her veneers put on(she looks younger in the picture). If she was beaten she wouldn't be smiling----Rihanna wasn't smiling! I hope Mel does get custody of his adorable daughter. He's a great dad and Lucia deserves to be with the better parent!

I was wondering that too about the Pope...did Ox call him and beg him for help like she did with Larry King, was she hoping for the Pope to bless her so Mel could be with her, did she ask the Pope to annul his marriage...WHAT IS IT WE WANT ANSWERS?...and also the William suicide...I think that meant this would be financial suicide....who knows...

Not sure why the Pope would be brought into this at all since Gibson doesn't answer to the RCC. If Ox called (and I doubt it) Benedict's aides probably looked at the caller ID and it read "Satan." They probably just threw some holy water on the phone and got back to important business.

No but I am sure insurance companies were jacking their Liability rates and security companies were fielfing calls from people In OxSanity's neighbour hood for upgrades, while people were boting down the lawn furniture and making sure there husbands were well guarded when leaving the house...

I hope Mel puts his foot down and does not settle anything with her. If she keeps up with her public take down of Mel, she will lose custody and child support.

Not knowing Mr. Mel personally, I can only speculate.

Maybe he was giving her a last chance. He cut off her easy civil case with the West plea, but took no further action except to warn her that if she pushed a civil suit, he would retaliate.

If, however, she is now going after his family, I think, I hope, the gloves are coming off.

If he did she would only keep coming back for more. I think Mel knows that and that is why I'm with you, i doubt he will settle.
