Grigorieva Brings In 40th Lawyer for Mel Gibson Child Support Case

Ever heard a partner tell a client or a junior associate that the firm "staffs matters leanly?" That phrase is designed to fool the client into believing that his bills will be reasonable and to fool the associate into believing that he will actually get to do some meaningful work.

Well, if your client is Oksana Grigorieva (which is Russian for "Mel Gibson's baby mama"), there's apparently no need for this charade. TMZ is reporting (via the Family Law Prof Blog) that Grigorieva has just hired her 40th attorney in her child support battle with Gibson. Who's the lucky lawyer that just made the cut to fill out the 40-man roster? It's LA family law practitioner Mitchell Jacobs. Congratulations, Mitch!

If you're curious about the other members of the team, TMZ published an exhaustive list over the weekend. If you're curious why anyone would choose to reproduce with Mel Gibson, get in line.
