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.

Bend Lindsay over, and have the legal system put on a strap-on-****, and fu** the dog-s*** out of her, and then put it on a pay-per-view event, and save CA from bankruptcy.

Dina is an enabler like the rest of LL's crowd. LL is being treated as a child with power and money. Hence those around her throw the blame elsewhere rather than look at themselves as it's about the money. Pretty sad situation and the parents need help too.

Is she planning on using her proceeds from suing eTrade to pay for this guy? LOL.

So she frantically shops around, looking for a lawyer who will agree with her, and had to go to Chicago to get him.

Where was all this enthusiasm and energy when all she had to do was go to a few classes within a few months?

I hope he gets her off, and that she overdoses on pharmaceuticals mixed with cocaine and alcohol while celebrating her new freedom, and that we never have to hear about her again!

Chicago? Isn't that where Belushi used to buy his buckets of cocaine? Let's see... he died at the Marmont, she can't stay away from there. All that appears to be left is for her to gain a couple of hundred pounds and get over her fear of needles... oh, wait...

That attorney would have to petition the court to be able to be accepted to represent this case in California since he doesn't have the State bar...I suspect that in itself would take longer than 7 days to go before a judge.

Lindsay can appeal her sentence after July 20th, but she would have to do so from jail. She's set to turn herself in on July 20th and appealing won't delay that regardless of what a previous PopEater article said.

Furthermore, if you do some research on probation violation appeals in the State of California, you have to go before an Administrative Judge who has to review whether the appeal has any merit or not before ever reaching an appellate court. In order for the appeal to even be considered, Lohan would have to prove that either there was no factual evidence that she violated probation (there is factual evidence that she did not attend an alcohol education class every 7 days without seeking court permission which was part of the terms of her probation so she would fail there) or argue that some of the evidence used to prove her violation was not admissible in court (she'll fail there again.

Basically she won't be able to appeal so having a lawyer is pointless, whether he could practice in CA or not.

She is so desperate that she could have tried to hire the President :-)

The president and his wife both have surrendered their licenses to practice law. They are disbarred, rather than face some disciplinary measures they had to deal with. So you can't hire either of them to represent you in court.

This lawyer thinks he is going to get his 15 minutes of fame & LiLo is going to end up killing someone or herself. Why cant these kids see what drugs & alcohol are capable of? She'll probably get off & it wont be long she will either be in a morgue or a prison cell.
