Blair Berk: The Miracle Worker

8/23/2007 6:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer pulled off one of the biggest legal feats in recent memory.


Lohan faced years in prison if convicted and charged with a felony. But mega-lawyer Blair Berk was able to negotiate with the D.A. and literally turn Lindsay's jail sentence into a revolving door. Lindsay could theoretically walk into jail at 11:30 one night and leave first thing in the morning.

It's not that the deal is that unusual, but getting it to stick, given the high profile of the case and the political pressure, makes it all remarkable.

Just curious. If the next average poor person gets busted for similar offenses as Lindsay in Beverly Hills . Can that person point out to the D.A. the Lindsey case and demand the same punishment and then sue if not given the same treatment? Is that even possible?

I can not believe that another CELEBRITY in LA gets away with this type of crime. How many more revolving doors is this jail going to have. It is absolutely insane and unfair -- that is why the celebrities in this town laugh when they get arrested -- they know that nothing will happen to them and guess what -- they are right!!!!!

May the first vehicle Lohan crashes into, drunk and drugged up, be that of her bottom fishing attorney!

Next time when Lohan kills someone, I hope your tuna fish arse will be sued off.

Is her sentence in hours or days? How can you get credit for 8 hours by doing one hour over 2 days??

Cherub,

If it set a legal precedent, guess someone could.

I KNOW I'D BE SUING AND HAVING THE ACLU IN ON IT.

And this so-called lawyer is "proud of herself"? For what? Allowing a drug and alcohol abusing skank to roam the streets and find someone to mame and/or kill??? Is MISS Birk gonna pay if Ho-Han goes out and commits another autrocity? Doubtful. Like everyone else involved, she can't see past the money. I hope you roast in hell along Miss Ho-Han, Attorney Birk. You two deserve eachother.

Huh? Wasn't Lindsay sentenced to HOURS and not DAYS? Meaning if she checked in at 11:30pm on a Monday, she would need to serve until 11:30pm Tuesday. Right? So how does this check in 11:30pm and leave in the morning work?
