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.”
