Brit's Attorney Acknowledges He Can't Rep Her

2/7/2008 4:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ just received the following statement from Brit's attorney Adam Streisand:

"At the request of Britney Spears, Adam Streisand, a Partner at Loeb & Loeb LLP, met with her yesterday to discuss her legal rights in connection with the conservatorship over her person and estate. Following that meeting, Mr. Streisand learned that the court had issued orders that prevent Ms. Spears from retaining counsel of her own choosing, and on that basis, Mr.Streisand has decided he will not represent her at this time."

So the parents can hire attorneys for Britney using her money for their issues? What a fair deal. That should keep someone sane to protect their own rights. This was all a set up last week.

Wow, I don't think this is good. As much as I snark about Britney, I do worry about what she will do if she feels she is being cornered and has no control over her personal life.

That's what you get for trying to inject yourself into a very public situation. Although, being such a smart attorney as he surely must be, he knew quite well that it was garner him some attention regardless.

Really?? Just found out AFTER he talked with Britney?? That's impressive considering he was at the hearing for conservatorship and every news media outlet knew that last week.

How is it she is legally sane enough to be released from the hospital, yet a judge can throw Britney's civil rights out the door(for no good reason now) and PREVENT her from choosing her own attorney?? This is absolutely wrong. I hope she can get an attorney of her own who will have her best interests at heart.

Why does everyone here seem to pat her FATHER on the back so much? He grubs her $$$$$$ with the best of them, After all, it says at this link http://www.x17online.com/gallery/view_gallery.php?gallery=britney-and-her-parents-in-better-times&index=2
she FINANCED her father's business. So he should not be the one deciding who she retains as attorney.

Britney NEEDS a dang good attorney for REAL, yall.

well, now I wonder if she is going to take aim at her daddy's car and try to break the windshield in with an umbrells. Listening to all this crap about Brit makes my family seem pretty damn normal! I'm glad to see that her dad in handling her affairs and not her mom. At least her dad has a job and works for a living thus not having to live off of his daughters coat strings, unlike her mother.

Those poor attorneys. It really sucks when they realize that even THEY have to obey the law. Britney needs help. So why doesn't Tom Cruise pull her into Scientology. Maybe that cult can keep Brit-Brit in line.

She had the audi towed because this site showed a picture of what looked like a man working on it. She thought it was bugged and had it towed away.
