Robert Shapiro

Will Rep Lindsay Lohan

7/14/2010 8:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned famed lawyer Robert Shapiro will represent Lindsay Lohan in her jail saga, but we're told Shapiro's plan is not to appeal Lindsay's 90-day jail sentence.

Sources say Shapiro, who was part of the team that successfully repped O.J. Simpson, will try to convince Judge Marsha Revel to put Lindsay in a rehab facility and either eliminate or minimize jail.

Shapiro, whose son died of a drug overdose in 2005, has a lot of experience with rehab facilities and we're told he has a specific plan for Lindsay, and a specific place in mind -- a live-in rehab facility in which Shapiro is involved.  Shapiro created a foundation to help people deal with drug and alcohol problems, named after his son -- The Brent Shapiro Foundation.

Shapiro was hired in a nick of time.  Lindsay is supposed to turn herself in on Tuesday.

People start taking life a little bit more seriously when it comes time to "turn oneself in" for jail/prison time. It truly can humble you. However, her new attorney needs to increase the sentence to show good faith on LL's part. Not cry because she is going to jail. But cry out to God to change you. LL, you are suffering direct consquences of your "sinful" lifestyle. It has nothing to do with a disease or substance abuse.. it has to do with you leading an out of control sinful lifestyle that only Jesus can turn around for you. Hundreds of thousands have travelled down your road, young lady. Many find freedom from their sins through God's forgiveness. It is all about the word.... REPENT... the willingness to turn from your "sin" and truly mean it ... not sobbing cause you got caught, etc. You have to search your heart ... and this is the time most people who get themselves in similar situations do.... It could have happened three years ago .. but you just kicked the can down the road and now you made it worse.... and it will keep gettig worse if you keep it up. This can be the end of your troubles... and I pray God will continue to "do what it takes" to save you. I pray in Jesus name. I have witnessed thousands of lives changed this way so keep your comments to yourselves TMZ LL bashers. Jesus works!!

LL, Here the spot that will help you. Forget Sharpio's secular mumbo jumbo rehab ... which only sets you up to relapse. This is where you want to go .... Teen Challenge of Ventura CA .... Or the Walter Hoving Home in Pasadena, and/or a couple others in Florida.

The attitude you need... is.... you are willing to do "whatever it takes" to change. WHATEVER IT TAKES!

So, Robbie has a plan for Lindsay, does he? Cool - the girl needs all the help she can get, and if he knows of a good rehab program and is willing to work with her personally, then good on him. But the fact of the matter is Lindsay screwed up ROYALLY, and to this day is convinced that SHE is the victim and has done no wrong. That attitude is NOT going to help her get anything out of rehab. Just putting her in some swank Beverly Hills resort for 90 days will just reinforce her delusion that she is something special and above the law. She NEEDS to sit her butt in a cell for the full 23 days so she has time to let it sink into her thick head that laws apply to her, too, that even with the 23 days and rehab, she has gotten off LIGHT compared to a lot of people, and that she had better take rehab SERIOUSLY. It would be a HUGE mistake to just put her in rehab - she would be back to her old ways within DAYS of getting out.

WHY, did the judge give her 2 weeks to get her **** together????

If she had said no, LL would be in her beautiful orange jumpsuit.

I REALLY hope she doesnt get out of this. I think its Tuesday?? when she needs to be at the courthouse? Wonder if she will have her extensions out??

Seriously, i will be so let down if she doesnt go to jail. Just giving up her cig's alone will be hell!!!

Maybe she should have taken the million and went on Celebrity Rehab. I mean, if the girl reallly is not an addict, then let her go to Dr. Drew, sit outside, smoke, and hey, she might have been the STAR of the whole show??!!!!

Dont know what else to say. If she doesnt go to jail, i will be so, so, let down and frustrated with our judicial system for failing us once again.

To Lindsay Lohan,

Why are you still hanging with Samantha Ronson? I thought you had a new and better girlfriend??? How on earth did this snake SamRO manage to slide her way back into your life? She is jealous and no good for you. The new girl you have is much better. Or better yet, find a nice new man who can help you get back on track.

Her dad was in jail while she was growing up, causing a lot of shame for her. Now it is happening -her nightmare - going to jail. The stupid doctors have her on Rx meds that both pick her up and put her to sleep -she really does actually need rehab not jail.

Shapiro fired within 2 weeks, then sues Lilo for back payment...he took the case to have a case against her in the coming months. That's how lose blood sucking leech attorneys operate. wanna bet?
