Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer: Persona Non Gratis

7/12/2010 8:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Lindsay Lohan's new lawyer isn't her new lawyer anymore ... people connected with him say it's because he wouldn't work for free ... but we're hearing a very different story.

Stuart V. Goldberg met with Lindsay, Dina and Ali on Friday night and it was a done deal, until he got a call over the weekend from Lindsay's business manager, Lou Taylor, who said they just couldn't afford him ... this is all according to Goldberg's camp.

But on the Lindsay side, it's a whole other story.   Let's just say that even Dina and Lindsay decided Goldberg was ... how do we say it nicely ... a little eccentric.   How 'bout a license plate with letters that reveal the word, "Snake Charmer."

The new leader in the clubhouse? We hear it's none other than O.J. Simpson's former lawyer, Robert Shapiro.   Hey, Shapiro helped get a killer off, so maybe not such a bad idea.

If LinLo can't afford this rube how do they expect to pay Shapiro!? He is a much higher profile defense lawyer and won't come cheap. How dumb.

Stuart V. Goldberg, an Illinois attorney, is a little mid-60...yo guy who hangs on 20yo girls in Chicago. Probably one of the most narcissitic preening guys in Chicago. And Chicago's a big city.

It's amazing we care so much about people we've never met. It's what this new world of 24-7 media has done to us. But, for the sake of arguing....

Lindsey needs to be in jail for 6 months, and 6 months of treatment/life skills. Send her to a remote state like Idaho, or Wyoming. LA is a beast if you have any mental, or psychological distress. It preys on your internal weaknesses, and corrupts from within. IF, you allow it too. Lindsey is so corrupt, it's now showing externally.

The question remains can she rebound like a Drew Barrymore, Robert Downey? I think the next 12 months will answer that question. Because if it's "NO," I feel "she's dead" will sadly be included in that sentence.

Dwight and all you others: By law, a large percentage of Lindsay's earnings as a childstar were required to be put away for her until she became an adult. If she's already blown through all that money then it's her own fault she is broke. Her parents didn't do this to her.

This article is wrong. I just saw Stuart riding around in his new Bentley in Chicago. His license plate is and has always been "RNMAKER" or rainmaker defined as a lawyer who makes it rain with clients.

@John Lawyer

Get your facts straight. Stuart has 2 cars, a Bentley Brooklands (license plants- RNMAKER) and a Lamborghini (Snake Charmer). This article doesn't have it wrong. In fact, before you talk about people whom you don't know and judge them, you should probably just worry about your own life and not bother about worrying so much about what cars other people drive

Lisa - You are a moron and a loser. Shut up! I will talk all I want about douche bags like Stuart on this site. I do know the guy and know that he was suspended from the East Bank Club for harrassing 14 year old girls. Are you sticking up for this guy? Is he your sugar daddy? He must me.....
