Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer Quits

Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer Quits

Lindsay Lohan‘s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, will no longer serve as Lindsay‘s counsel.

TMZ reports that Lindsay will be represented by Tiffany Feder-Cohen, a lawyer admitted to the bar in November of 2009.

Earlier today, Shawn released a statement to JustJared.com. Check it:

Ms. Lohan and I are extremely disappointed in the sentence handed down by Judge Revel. We believe that the penalty is far harsher than what others would have received under similar circumstances.

“The reality is that Ms. Lohan, like most defendants, had to balance work commitments with court requirements. To be punished so severely for doing so, particularly in light of the fact that she substantially complied with each of her probationary conditions, is harsh and unfair. That said, Ms. Lohan is prepared to serve her jail time and to comply with the Court’s orders.”

“With respect to Ms. Lohan‘s nails, the fact is, the words could barely be seen by the naked eye. That a courtroom camera, purportedly there to accurately chronicle the proceedings, would use a telephoto lens to zoom in as it did to Ms. Lohan‘s fingernail is a commentary on the entire issue.”

She better be in jail for at least a month. And as for the nails, I don’t think she’s brave enough to have had it done in defiance of the court system. It was probably just done in silliness without her remembering she had it. Her method is being ‘badass’ and screwy outside of court in her actual life, while in court she plays the part of an honest girl and a lost puppy dog combined. I’ve had enough of her.

Isn’t it interesting that in America, someone like Chris Brown who managed to reconstruct a woman’s face with his fist only gets Community Service whilst an (albeit stupid and irresponsible) girl gets sent to jail for breaking the terms of her probation. I know which case is worse.

Lilo probably got her nails because she thought it looked ‘cool’, doubt it was for the Hearing.

@Jack: Our System is messed up.

# 6

She won’t last 2 weeks.

I really, really, really hope this will help her start afresh. I really do want to see her change for the better. I hope she serves the full 90 days and the 3 months in Rehab. We’ll see.

her rehab time should have been longer than her jail time

I had a friend do 6 months in jail for getting a dui 3 times. Sure enough if she can do the same thing why wouldn’t she receive the same thing. Just because she WAS a celebrity doesn’t mean she should have a lesser punishment than everyday hard working ppl. All she does is party, drink, and do drugs…she deserves a full 6 months at least and jail time. Shame on anyone to feel sorry for this screw up.

The fact that Lindsay got those words put on that particular finger is an even bigger commentary on the issue, Shawn.

Also, why did you quit her?

I was wondering how long she’d stay with her.

I am surprised it took her this long.

When your client doesn’t listen to you, it’s hard to remain by her side.

Oh yeah, I guess Lindsay had bad luck not that chris brown had good luck lol. You sound ridiculous this is a Lindsay topic. This girl has been in the News for months or even for years for not attending the courts, taking drugs, and etc etc… Thats all I know about her. She shows off that shes a good girl but she looks like a witch. And am I supposed to feel sorry for her??? Sorry, but NO. She has never acted like a normal person. She’s antisocial and I think she believes that we have to get used to her rules when she’s incapable to adapt herself to society. She’s dumb and all she’s doing to the world is proving that she can be dumber. She never had education and now the society has to bear her and try to bring her up as an adult. Pure TRASH

@Jack: You’re comparing apples and oranges.

If Brown violates his PROBATION, he goes to jail.

Lohan has violated her probation, the reason she’s going to jail.

Besides, why the eff do you care if Lohan gets sent to jail? Are you here friend, publicist, agent, family member?

@Jack:

do you not understand “probation” ????

She needs the jail time first….she’s been in and out of rehab and showed no commitment to turning her life around. She is the only one who put herself in this position…she has only herself to blame. She has lied, cheated, manipulated and partied her way into this mess so presenting a repentant face to the Judge when, all along, she’s been presenting an unrepentant face to everyone else isn’t going to work. The term isn’t a harsh one and maybe it will make her realise that, if you treat people as fools while you’re lying to them, then they will treat you sternly by way of return. Serves her right.

‘Bout time. What took her so long..?

Shes too good for Lindsay :D lol
Lilo, next time you could hire someone from craigslist?

Lindsay has been working so hard her entire life and she surely was in need of a better lawyer than that quitter !!!

Enjoy in jail hahahahahaha . U nasty woman and ***** hahahahaha go in hall .but iam in the best

Hey lindsay u crazy nasty go in jail

No one gets 90 days jail for this? Ironic. No one gets 100 000 news media stations to dissect a spoilt 24 year old girls life either. In some parts of the world Lilo would be getting stoned for her indiscretions. How ironic that Lilo would claim that Judge Revel is trying to make an example of her when in fact Lilo has been doing and continues to do her best to make an example of her. I look forward to reading Lilo’s ‘While I was behind bars,’ memoir and Judge Revel’s ‘While I secretly cried when Lilo was behind bars’ memo.
