The Public Information Office of the LA Superior court tells HollywoodLife.com that although he publicly professed it, Robert Shapiro was never working for Lindsay Lohan!

Lindsay Lohan’s life is such a hot mess that we didn’t bat an eyelash when Robert Shapiro, her lawyer of just three days, quit her case on July 19, the night before she went to jail. But guess what, BFFs? Although he publicly announced he was representing the hard-partying starlet on July 16, Robert was never officially Lindsay’s lawyer in the first place!

Robert Shapiro was at no time the counsel on record that was again reiterated in court today by both Judge Revel and Shawn Chapman-Holley,” the PIO office of LA Superior told HollywoodLife.com exclusively July 20, adding, “[Shawn Chapman-Holley] never signed the substitution of attorney, so Shawn Chapman-Holley has and always was Lindsay’s counsel.”

Chapman-Holley explained Shapiro’s relation to the case during Lindsay’s pre-jail court appearance today, saying that he was a “consultant.”

DRAMA!

How long until she’s out? I bet she’s sprung by Saturday.

i believe the reports that are putting it at about 3 weeks. much less than she got, but a long time for someone used to living her life. her 90 days of rehab won’t be shortened at least.

Too true – have you seen the look on Holly’s face as Lndsey breaks into tears – she has a look like “what am I even doing here” and its true, Lindsey made her own bed and jerked the court around – see what happens?
Problem is most, like Paris Hilton or Nicole Ritchy sadly had to learn thier lesson – which they obviusly have as they both have managed to stay out of trouble – Lindsey I’m afraid isn’t nearly as smart as those two and if she manages to keep herself alive somehow will find her back home (jail) soon enough.

She wish he was her lawyer, instead of that POS that has been by her side watching the court throw her in jail!

clearly you have no concept of reality if you think sch is either a pos or did a bad job. lindsay made her bed, repeatedly disrespected the court, etc. a lawyer cannot clean up all messes, though as usual, they get blamed for them all.
