Dawn Holland is
Lying for MONEY
Sources close to Lindsay tell us ... Lohan was fuming when she learned Dawn picked up a new lawyer -- insisting the move is an "obvious" sign Dawn wants money ... from either a settlement or through a civil suit.
We're told Lindsay is still very confident the D.A. will not press charges against her -- no matter what Dawn decides to do -- because LiLo doesn't believe she did anything wrong.
