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.

EVENTUALLY LINDSEY'S CARELESS AND RECKLESS DRIVING HABITS WILL KILL SOMEONE AND WHEN SHE DOES I HOPE ITS A CLOSE RELATIVE OF HER ATTORNEY AND THE DA!!

MAYBE THEN THEY WILL THINK ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR DECISIONS!

So we supposed to get political advice from Hollywood celebrities? Why do we, the real people of this land, must care about the endorsement of any of these idiots?

As for this "wonderful" lawyer, she is just serving her master... Lawyers just want to win their cases, they don't give a damm if their client is guilty.
They truly are the devil's advocate and tonight they are celebrating...Another criminal is out, their job is done!!!!

She should be ashamed for getting Lindsay off. She probably thinks that she is a great attorney for pulling this off but just wait. The next time Lindsay gets all tanked up and gets into an accident, she will take out a family of six and then how will this attorney feel? Is she going to rush to get her a little nothing, pat on the wrist sentence then? What is it going to take? How many people is Lindsay going to have to kill?

Once again another overpaid ass kissing lawyer gets another LOSER free. This is not fair. She was drinking and with drugs twice. All the rest of us would have no license and be behind bars.

This comes as NO suprises. Don't forget, x-professional football players seem to be able to kill they're x-wifes and friends whom stand in they're way, Rock-Stars whom are know pedophiles seem to be able to buy themselves out of court.....and the 3 amigos: Britney, Lohan and Hilton have embaressed the American Judicial system to the point where those of us up here in Canada are in TOTAL amazement!!!!!!!

This lawyer is not doing Lindsay any favors. She will be dead before she is 30. Doesn't anyone see the trouble she is in. If that were the average joe committing the same crimes, they would be locked up for years. Shame on the lawyer and the system.

and defense attorney's wonder why they are not liked or respected? I agree with what one poster said. When Ms. Lohan has another drunken escapade and this time crashes her car into a car carrying a family of 5, will this attorney be able to look at herself in the mirror? How is Lindsey supposed to learn a lesson if there are no consequences for her actions. I guess what she said in the car that night while speeding over 100mph on the freeway was right, she is a celebrity and nothing bad will happen to her. American Justice bought and paid for the good old American way. Hell, we have a First Lady who ran a stop sign and killed someone. She didn't spend one day in jail. Really sickening.
