Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer

Threatened by Michael

9/26/2010 6:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, worked miracles running back and forth to court Friday to spring her client from jail, but it wasn't good enough for Michael Lohan. TMZ has learned daddy Lohan left a voicemail and texts on Holley's phone, threatening to "blow you out of the water."

Sources tell us the voicemail -- left earlier in the week -- also threatened to "dig up dirt" on Shawn, as well as Lindsay's business manager, Lou Taylor.  

Michael left two text messages on Holley's phone Friday after the court hearing, telling her she should do Lindsay a favor and quit. In another text, Michael claimed Holley and Taylor were destroying the Lohan family.
0926_michael_lohan_video_small_2Michael went nuclear at the Bev Hills Courthouse Friday morning after Judge Elden Fox threw Lindsay in jail. Fox's decision was reversed later that day after Holley filed an appeal, and Lindsay got out of jail Friday night.

We're told Holley, who could not be reached for comment, will not seek a restraining order.

It's just Michael being Michael.

UPDATE: Michael tells TMZ, "It's true. I said those things ... but it’s spun. I wasn’t knocking Shawn for working all those hours ... I was knocking the fact that I told them to do this [send Lindsay to rehab] a long time ago. Just now they’re listening."

if he cared for her at all, he would be low key. I think he's got ADHD, and thats why Lindsay was diagnosed with it. look at this past yr, moving to CA, engaged, not engaged, posting nude pics on web of fiance,got a lawyer to help him with lindsay, gonna start a night club, gonna open a rehab ctr. plus all the other incedentals in-between...all the while he is on camera. her lawyer is doing her job, keeping lindsay out of jail. she is not there to diagnose,family counseling,aoda treatment. she's a lawyer. and she did quit being lindsays atty in summer. and could not until lindsay found a new one.

How can we make the media STOP reporting on anything this man has to say? His "opinion" doesn't matter.

i don't condone his behaviour but I think he's right (in a SMALL sense)

Holley *IS* ruining Lindsay by pulling string after string to get her out of trouable, and why? not because she believes in her but because she wants the $$$. Lindsay will pay her more to keep her ass out of jail than being in it.

Lindsay will NEVER get it. She's been in and out of jail and rehab for such short periods is will never get the point across... as for the scram bracelet, HELLO?? bitch failed a drug test with cocaine and got away with it!!! the scram bracelet aint gonna do S>H>I>T!

This guy better be careful..It's a really a stupid idea to tick off a lawyer--especially a smart one like Shawn. All she has to do is sue him ans he's be forced to defend himself, which means large legal fees. A smart lawyer can delay, bury the other councel in paperwork, etc...All which Lohan would have to pay for. Those bills add up really quickly. She could cost this guy a lot of money. He may or may not have any assets, but his lawyers will insist on being paid.

If he cared enough about his daughter vs. his need to hear his won voice, he would just shut up. And I agree with the post that said that he is hugely ADHD. He spouts off nonsense and can't stay focused on anything very long.

Michael L. Has some very valid points. The problem is he has burned so many bridges in the past that nobody will listen to him anymore.
Dina just loves the fact that Holley is getting Lindsay out of jail and rehab which is the WORST thing for her.
Lindsay LOVES the fact that Holley is getting her out of everything.
And Holley Loves the fact that Lindsay keeps coming back for more b/c she keeps making the big bucks off Lindsay!
The Judge is the only one with any sense!

Sometimes we have to do things that we don't want to do, but will benefit us and better us in the long run. Why nobody can explain this to Lindsay is beyond me. She seems to be beyond hope at this point. She said she would take responsibility for her actions, but then went and skipped out on her 30 days that the Judge warned her she would have to serve for a dirty test. Way to go PR team! LL is a total LIAR and FRAUD! SHE IS NOT TRUSTWORTHY! SHE IS A CRIMINAL.
Her father is more trustworthy then she is at this point. Way to go LL..your father has become a better person than you. No more pointing the finger Lindsay.
