Lindsay Lohan -- Lawyered Up!

7/10/2010 4:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources tell TMZ Lindsay Lohan has settled on a new lawyer -- and she went all the way to Chicago to find him.

We're told Lindsay will hire Stuart V. Goldberg, a criminal defense attorney from the Windy City. Goldberg met with Lindsay -- along with her sister and Ali and mother Dina -- for about six hours yesterday.

Lindsay, we're told, called Stuart herself and asked him to fly out to Los Angeles.

Lohan is supposed to surrender to the court by July 20, so Goldberg has his work cut out for him.

Ali was there, offered up as "trade" for services rendered. And the only reason Dina was there was to see if this guy can sue to get her Carvel ice cream card back.

Amazing that she is spending so much effort trying to stay out of jail. She should spend an equal amount of time cleaning up her image. I for one believe she and other alleged "movie stars" should do their time the same as everybody else. I salute the judge for not being intimidated by her or her father.

You could tell from the video in the courtroom, Shawn Holly wasn't into defending Lohan. http://bit.ly/aJocm2 Holly had the look on her face like she didn't want to be involved in that case at all.

This guy looks like that orange colored Repug, John Boehner, you know the big p---k who never smiles? .. Don't they know how ridiculous they look? Geez, go sit outside next to your pool for god's sake, even the risk of skin cancer has to be a better bet than that stuff.

Haha, good luck with this one buddy. Jesus Christ himself couldn't defend Lindsay at this point. I'm sure that once she ends up in jail, this guy will quit/be fired as well, since he didn't bow down and properly defend the victim of the biggest conspiracy in American history, Lindsay Blohan.

Can't wait for Lindsay's Tweets from jail, where she compares her "unfair" and "unlawful" treatment to the pain and suffering that the families of victims from 9/11 went through. You know it's coming.

The George Kennedy body-double IS NOT LICENSED in California to practice law (check calbar.org) which means he would have to appeal to the court to work pro hac vice (generally not allowed in Cali - THE STRICTEST STATE IN THE COUNTRY IN REGARDS TO THE PRACTICE OF LAW - which usually does not even consider out of staters for nickel and dime crime (which this is)) so Lindsay will need a local attorney to cover this guy - by putting their license on the line for Linds and George Kennedy there, or she'll be SOL with the Orange Crush. She's gonna be pissed... and she's wasting valuable time pursuing this guy. There are plenty of good attorneys in LA for this (they get paid win lose or draw so they'll take her case... if she fronts the money by security of some sort) she just better have a court room ready guy in motion by Wednesday or an appeal is a waste of time. She only has 7 WORKING DAYS before she is to surrender. Clear the 405 folks.... I see a white bronco chase in out future. Oh boy... we haven't had one of those in ages!
