Why Lindsay Lohan Picked An Inexperienced Attorney To Fight Her Losing Battle With The Law

An insider says Lindsay blames her old lawyer for her harsh jail/rehab sentence and wants to surround herself with “yes” people — and this new lawyer will tell her exactly what she wants to hear!

Since Judge Marsha Revel sentenced Lindsay Lohan to 90 days in jail followed by 90 days in rehab July 6, the 24-year-old actress has acted like a bratty two-year-old. She’s cried, pleaded and chased off her defense attorney, the well-respected Shawn Chapman Holley, only to hire Tiffany Feder-Cohen, a lawyer who passed the bar less than a year ago. But why would she do something so seemingly stupid?

According to Los Angeles-based lawyer Steve Cron, Lindsay refuses to take any responsibility for her own mistakes and wants someone who will cater to her, like a brand-new attorney. “To hire a lawyer who has been practicing for six or seven months on a case like this is just ridiculous,” Cron tells HollywoodLife.com. “Lindsay wants someone who will tell her what she wants to hear. Lindsay is not willing to accept responsibility for the outcome. She’s grasping at straws.”

Lindsay’s mom, Dina, has said her Chapman-Holley didn’t get the job done and that she hopes this new counsel will be better. “I think it’s time we get another attorney
just to see it from another light and do damage control,” she told Entertainment Tonight.

According to Facebook and Twitter, the Law Offices of Tiffany Feder-Cohen “specializes in both criminal and immigration defense” and was opened in Dec. 2009. Under the reviews section, one client claims Feder-Cohen is “truly THE person that can get things done!”

Hopefully the reviews are true and Feder-Cohen lives up to her hype. Unfortunately for her, she’s fighting a losing battle. Experts, like Cron, have told us that there’s absolutely no way that Judge Revel will appeal Lindsay’s jail sentence after she’s blatantly disrespected the court and violated her parole.

God speed, Feder-Cohen.
