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.

It will be a good thing that she goes to jail its only 3 months she won't have her stupid friends taking her to the clubs and tempting her with the drugs This is the best rehab she can be in. She can't leave, nobody can bring stuff into her.I hope it all turns out for her because deep down I don't think she wants to be like this.

Here's an idea Michael (and Dina, for that matter). Maybe it's because he has ethics, and morales and values. Maybe it's because Lindsey ****ed up and then did nothing to take responsibility for her actions. Maybe it's because he recognizes that celebrities and getting away with their actions strictly because of their status. Maybe it's because he wants her to know what it will be like if she continues on the same path. Maybe it's because he knows that you both just spew your mouths off, that its 95% your fault that Lindsey turned out the way she did and that someone has to stop defending this bitch with no talent. STFU Michael and let her lawyer do his job.

GRRRRR    

TMZ... QUIT ASKING THIS MAN QUESTIONS THAT ARE NONE OF HIS BUSINESS. AS A CHILD OF A "DIVIDED" FAMILY, YOU ARE SIMPLY TORTURING A YOUNG WOMAN WHO HAS ALREADY HAD YEARS OF MISERY AT MICHAEL LOHAN'S EXPENSE AND YET NOW AS AN ADULT, SHE IS BEING FORCED TO DEAL WITH HIS CRAZINESS PUBLICLY. "BIOLOGICAL PARENT" IS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THING THAN A FATHER. FIND SOME REAL CELEBRITY NEWS TO COVER...

#32 I'm trying to figure that out myself too! I think that Mike need to stay out of Lindsay's business, and let Shapiro do his job to try to help the girl out.

UNTIL THIS - I kind of thought just maybe Michael Lohan had some credibility. After all, he wasn't running around saying Lindsay was "fine." Both Shapiro and Holley are good attorneys who know their way around the Los Angeles legal system. Lindsay will get rehab, Michael, but first she has to serve her well-earned time. Let the lawyers lawyer and focus on parenting.

WHY do you keep giving him so much attention?? The novelty of the "trainwreck" factor has faded. I've had warts that went away faster!

Appeal?? IF they appeal do you realize how PISSED that judge would be Michael? I'm also sure the judge didn't take to kindly to the FU on L nail during sentencing. Go up in front of her again and she will give L MORE jail!

The most L will do is what 2 weeks in jail anyway? Let her take these consequences already and get herself on the right track. Let me add L is NOT in rehab right now, that is a place for AFTER rehab, I hope the judge stops that real quick because if she doesn't L will go back to this "Hotel after care" when done with jail and never get better! She needs a real strict rehab with structure.

Shaperio deals with reality and knows an appeal isn't going to happen, no way, no how. Another "face time opportunity" for Daddy Lohan, and if he REALLY cared about his daughter he'd keep his mouth shut and/or move to another planet. This is guy unbelievably vomit inducing.

Someone needs to muzzle this moron. Bob Shapiro's got this, so Michael Lohan should now feel free to concentrate on getting himself an honest J-O-B.

Someone needs to muzzle this moron. Lindsay is finally getting someone responsible to give her some urgent help and this jackass is spewing this crap trying to stay in the public's eye. Bob Shapiro has got this, so Michael Lohan should now feel free to concentrate on getting himself a J-O-B.

What a dumbass....Shapiro is trying to save the girl's life. He lost his own son and he's doing what is right for LL.

I never thought Mi-Ho and a good point would be in the same room, but objectively, RoShap IS bound to file any appeal that is available to potentially avoid consequences his client is averse to. We all know that it's moot, but he probably should have done something other than check her into his private hoosegow...no?

Are all of you IDIOTS? She's a grown ass adult. Her choices, her problems. Her Mom and Dad were neglegent. Neither here nor there. .She's 24 and didn't take care of her issues. Time to pay the piper. Plain and simple
