After failing to keep her out-of-control client jail free, Lilo’s defense attorney has stepped down…and we think we know why
Lindsay Lohan laughed in the law’s face and not even one of the best lawyers in the business could keep her out of jail and rehab. As it turns out, not even top attorney Shawn Chapman Holley could keep La Lohan from self-destructing and announced her “resignation” today, July 8. Her replacement? A gal who passed the bar just one year ago. Eek! What happened?
“Shawn Chapman Holley has been practicing for a long time and has an excellent reputation. I have no doubt she did everything she possibly could have done,” criminal defense attorney Steve Cron tells HollywoodLife.com. “Lindsay wants someone who will tell her what she wants to hear. She simply is not willing to accept responsibility for the outcome — she’s grasping at straws.”
Even as she received her harsh sentencing – 90 days in jail and 90 days of rehab – the 24-year-old trainwreck blatantly disrespected the law. She wept and swore she did nothing wrong all the while holding her ‘FU’ nails up to Judge Marsha Revel, which were actually defended by Shawn in a statement the day before she quit.
“With respect to Ms. Lohan’s nails, the fact is, the words could barely be seen by the naked eye,” Holley said. “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.”
Even though her lawyer tried to defend her disrespectful behavior, Lindsay continues to deny responsibility for her actions and seems to have undeservedly placed the blame on Shawn.
“If [Lindsay’s lawyer] had said the same thing [in court] and the judge HADN’T given her time, they would have been hugging,” Cron says. “But it didn’t turn out well, so consequently — speaking hypothetically — Lindsay’s looking around for someone to blame and so, it must be the lawyer.”
