Lindsay Lohan -- Someone Get Me a Lawyer!

7/14/2010 11:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan can't find a lawyer to save her life.

Sources connected with Lindsay tell TMZ LiLo and mama Dina have been interviewing potential lawyers like crazy but, we're told, "They are suspicious of their (the lawyers') motives."

We've learned Lindsay is now talking to former O.J. Simpson lawyer Robert Shapiro, but she has not hired him.

Short story -- Lindsay is due to surrender in Judge Marsha Revel's court on July 20 to begin a 90-day jail sentence.  We broke the story ... Shawn Chapman Holley quit the case but has not been excused by Judge Revel, because there's no lawyer to take her place.

Holley -- a seasoned attorney but not a magician -- could get the judge to formally excuse her before the 20th.

One way or the other, unless Lindsay wins a delay, she had better show up on the 20th or the judge will issue a bench warrant.  Been there, done that.

What about a court appointed attorney? She just needs follow the judges orders and handle her own life.

The smart thing to do (I know that's asking a lot from you Lindsay) would be to kiss and make up with Holley since changing lawyers in the middle of a case makes you look crazy. The next best thing would be to find a new lawyer who has a really good rapport with Judge Revel, since you obviously do not.

In this photo she looks like the ugly nurses and doctors from that episode of the Twilight Zone (The Eye of the Beholder) where the hot chick keeps getting cosmetic surgery to look like the rest of the freaks. Congratulations, Lindsay, you were successful.

Why is Kim Kardashian tweeting the Lindsay Lohan is dead? I thought they were BFFs? Can't she just pick up a phone and call her rather than tweeting such unconfirmed nonsense? D-List celebrities are idiots.

"They are suspicious of their (the lawyers') motives."

I am just guessing, but it sounds to me like they can't afford an attorney and are worried about the ones willing to do it "pro bono".

She might be better off taking a court appointed.

Are you sure?    

It's hard to hire a lawyer to prevent her from serving what amounts to about 20 days in jail! Lindsay get your Adderall addicted, chain smoking butt ready to serve your sentence. Stop all your stupid drama! Dina Lohan needs to stop acting like Lindsay needs the assistance of Amenesty International! It's 20 days!!!!

For pete sake, LL needs to pay the piper (lord knows she's probably hit the pipe a few times) and just deal with it, it's not like she's busy with a movie or anything. Plus, once she's behind bars, her dbag father will have nothing to talk about and hopefully he will go away..FOR GOOD!

I am sure the truth of the matter is she can not find a Lawyer to take her and her antics on. for love or money. she has screwed herself with all her BS in and out of court.Dina Lohan is an idiot. she is 50% responsible for the mess she created. ina said "wait til I tell Lyndsay" after a year of free ice cream cakes?? who is Dina? no one special thats for damm sure. just goes to show her style. she can pay for a cake? yeah lets all free load!

Its not because they "don't trust" all these people they are "interviewing".
Nobody will take her as a client. They know her reputation, thus nobody wants to deal with her.
Sad, but true. I feel sorry for Shawn if she has to go back on the 20th and pretend she cares about being there. Jk..I'm sure she is way more professional than that. But, I'm sure she knows that LL is going to be a raving b***h that morning! Lol. I wouldn't want to be in her shoes then.
