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.

Her parents in large part are the very reason she is sooo screwed up. The max she will do is 25 days +/-. Just shut up and do the time.

they all disappear.

I think Robert Shapiro is definitely doing what he is doing for good reason. Having lost a son to drugs, I think he really wants to get her back in line. He probably wants her to experience life in jail for longer than a day, but less than what she was actually sentenced to, in hopes that that will give her some determination to quit using drugs. He doesn't just want to get her off the hook, he wants her to gain some determination to get herself together, something she doesn't seem to have right now. Michael Lohan shoud shut up and let the professionals handle this. Yes, we get that you've been in jail and it sucks and you don't want your daughter to go through that, but sometimes that is what it takes. Better that it is only months instead of years. If she keeps getting let off the hook then that is what it will come to.

What an idiotic comment. Being someones lawyer gives you an "ethical" responsibility to appeal a fair verdict? I hope Lindsay rots in the slammer. I mean for gods sakes if Paris and Martha could do it then she can too.

Shapiro's son died of the same disease. I take it that he's trying to get Lindsay to sober up and face the music, so that she doesn't follow in his son's footsteps. Jail helped Robert Downey, Jr. get his act together. Lindsay NEEDS something catastrophic to make her realize she's at rock bottom. If jail doesn't do it, what will? Not some cushy rehab place - she's been there and done it. Three times. It didn't work.

Who is Michael Lohan again? Some ex-con scam artist that behaves like a child...

What a stupid statement..."he's going to file an appeal". Really? I hope the judge finds him in contempt for breathing. I'd love to see Robert Shapiro file some kind of motion with the courts that will force MiLo to STFU.

Ummmm, Michael you dummy, he got her into a sober house, he is doing more for her than you or your wife. He knows that appealing would just prolong the inevitable, and that your daughter would be more of a risk to herself in that time. She messed up, she broke the law, then broke the terms of probation. She is getting what she deserves. It's time she grew up and took responsibility for her actions and starts to learn to be a responsible adult, something she has not and can not learn from her "parents".

I think this guy should be a father...if he was in the first place, Lindsey wouldn't be in the predicament.

Appeal on what grounds? She directly disobeyed the judge's orders. She deserves jail maybe she will come out a better person after having to face the reality of the situation she caused.

sober a while    

This guy desperately needs an Alanon meeting. He needs to get his head out of his daughters be hind and focus on his own life. Oh, wait. Without her he doesn't have one. He needs to get one.

This story has gotten beyond boring. People die of this disease every day. Why doesn't the media focus on some of them, who maybe want to be sober? This girl is very ill but it seems like she doesn't want to get well.

hhh    

she needs to go to jail, maybe, maybe she will learn that if you do the crime, you better be ready to do the time, she is not special or above the law....if that were a "normal" person, they'd already be in jail.. her father needs to SHUT UP....he's part of the reason she's the way she is.....

I WAS WONDERING IF MICHAEL LOHAN HAS THE GUTS TO TRY A "WELFARE CHECK " AND BREAK INTO THE PLACE ,LOVE TO SEE HIM ARRESTED . WONDERING IF ROBERT SHAPIRO THINKS THAT LINDSAY IS THE HARDEST CELEBRITY HE HAS HAD TO DEAL WITH , HARDER THAN OJ, OR IS IT REALLY ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE AROUND LINDSAY THAT MAKES IT HARDER. YEAH , YOU CAN SEND ROBERT SHAPIRO YOUR VIEWS BY E-MAILING HIM AT HIS LAW FIRM FRANKLY . TIME FOR A 10 YEAR RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST DADDY MICHAEL LOHAN.

Lindsay is not a minor child any more. He can not hire a lawyer to file an appeal. She has a lawyer who will do what she needs/wants done and protect her interests.
It's not up to "daddy" anymore-- when will he realize that
