Michael Lohan -- Robert Shapiro Should Appeal!

7/18/2010 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan might be a big fan of her new lawyer Robert Shapiro -- but Michael Lohan sure isn't.

We caught up with MiLo yesterday and he told our photog he feels Shapiro should be appealing Lindsay's 90-day jail sentence. Michael said, "I don't know why Robert Shapiro did what he did, to be honest. If he's representing her -- ethically, as an attorney, he should have filed an appeal."

Lindsay is supposed to turn herself in to the court on Tuesday -- but Michael hopes he can get an attorney to file an appeal for Lindsay on Monday so she can get in to rehab.

Figures to be another exciting week in the life of Lindsay Lohan.

And the second parental enabler chimes in. For all his talk about how his daughter is addicted and needs help...he's right there advocating that she not be held responsible for her actions too, just like her mother. I still think this man only opens his mouth if he thinks there's something in it for him...like publicity (hopefully a paid interview) or maybe his own "reality" show.

You know, maybe if Shapiro parades her parents in front of the judge, she will feel so sorry for LiLo that she'll reduce the sentance.

How can she appeal? She agreed to the terms of her probation and she broke them.

I would so love it if Michael were reading this... 1. Dude u are not the famous one with talent so stop with the A. lister swagger..youre an ex-con ya tard! 2. Please stop chasing cameras and chase after your daughter WITHOUT fanfare like Britney Spears family did! 3. When Lindsay is found dead, Im sure u will be the first to run to the camera!! U are KILLING this child!!! If u really love her, do something with out running to a camera saying, "See see see? I did that! Did u see me?" Like a friggin 2 year old instead of a father!!

Her parents are the main reason why L will always have a reason to drink. Jail or not. It's really pathetic.

Oops... Her parents are the main reason why L will always have an "excuse" to drink. Jail or not. It's really pathetic.

His only interest in this case is that Lindsay used to finance the entire family and now he gets no money because she is closer to her mother.

It was the parents who pushed their daughter to overperform and got her hooked on a lot of medication. I guess that any other set of parents which would had their daughters interest at best would have chosen to let their daughter underperform and then she could had a happy life and while we would have missed seing a talented actress but we would also had been spared for the risk of being run over by yet another driver under influence.

She is a good actress - properly one of the best ever - but she has not the stomach to be in the business. May this case be a lesson. Do not push your child to outlive their potential. It can backfire and leave your all to watch a tragedy.

There is no such thing as a life without consequence!!

It may take a while to get back to you, but it surely will.

Sooner or later EVERYONE reaps what they sow.

Lindsay is no exception. Her little money just bought her a little time.

She came to court looking like a staright up hooker, no?!

Looking down her nose at everyone...

Good or bad comes back to ya Linds.

Hey,...pssst... it'll be over before you know it...HA!

Yeah Michael, you are the authority on EVERYTHING aren't you?
You know better than the Judge or the courts or the lawyers - even though your life is a friggin' mess just like your daughters.
Do yourself a favor dude, shut the F up!

"Ethically, as an attorney, he should file an appeal"? Did this toadstool say "ethically"? Forget being a lawyer...the most ethical thing Shapiro could possibly do to save her life is to get Lindsay under control, and that can only be accomplished through jail and rehab - she needs to learn to take responsibility for her actions.

And she'll still need a lawyer when all is said and done...it's not all about the high-profile, televised court visits.

This piece of garbage is probably most responsible for his daughter becoming a piece of garbage. They should both just quietly expire.

It seems likely that Shapiro asked for a share of the jail interview money. He probably convinced Lindsay that there's no way she can't avoid jail. He's gonna try to reduce as much as possible the jail sentence. At most 10 days. Hence her stay at his sober house. Free publicity for him, good behavior for her.

If LL would have done what she was told instead of "acting" out she wouldn't be in this mess. Besides her parents don't seem to be any help - all they seem to do is whine how unfair everyone has been towards LL - mom & dad: get over it, if you were better parents this may have not happened. But LL is an adult and she needs to do her time in jail (then her stint in rehab - a qualified rehab, not a 'get-a-away from it all facility'), then maybe, just maybe, she'll grow up and take responsibility for her actions (yeah, right).
