Lindsay Lohan

Lawyerless and Screwed

EXCLUSIVE

0114_lindsay_lohan_gettyLindsay Lohan should kiss Shawn Holley's butt ... because Shawn just saved hers by claiming to rep her even though Lindsay unceremoniously fired Shawn.

As we told you ... Lindsay signed a termination letter Monday which her new lawyer Mark Heller sent to Shawn. But Heller -- a New York lawyer -- is not licensed to practice in California and did not appear in court today for Lindsay's arraignment. If Shawn told the judge she was fired and formally asked to be relieved, the judge could have and probably would have issued a bench warrant for Lindsay's arrest.

Shawn dodged the issue in open court by saying she still reps LiLo for now, which is technically true until she is formally dismissed by the judge. A confused judge then clearly called Shawn and the prosecutor up to the bench and asked WTF.

Here's where it gets totally ridiculous. Sources tell us Lindsay told Shawn yesterday that she was going to have Heller send Shawn another letter cancelling the first, but we're told that never happened. And sources connected with Heller tell TMZ ... Mr. Heller was busy Monday placing calls to Shawn, the prosecutor and the court to make it clear he's the lawyer.

Since it's not clear who is representing Lindsay anymore, the judge ordered her to personally appear on January 30, even though ordinarily the matter could be handled without her being present.

In the meantime ... if Lindsay asked Shawn to come back (and this would be the second time because Lindsay pulled this stunt on her before), Holley should run for the hills.

Lindsay should write a thank you note to Shawn for saving her ungrateful ass once again.

I think Shawn did the right thing today by submitting that plea for Lindsay since it was a very simple and straightforward hearing. At this point though, she should dump Lindsay like a hot potato. Shawn has a ton of rich, high profile clients. She doesn't need to bother with Lindsay's crap, and who knows if Lindsay even has the money anymore to pay her.

It sure seems like Shawn Holly and everybody who deals with Lindsay is ready to take an endless amount of crap off of her, and without even getting paid to do it. No, THEY pay HER. I can't imagine what's in it for these folks who continue to give Lindsay one break after another, and then she kicks them in their butt. I guess there are a lot of folks out there who like to get kicked in the butt.

I sure hope that Lindsay will do a porno before she goes to jail for 6 months.
At least that will help me remember all the stupid things she has done.

This Shawn Holley woman is ruining her own reputation by continuing her association with the disgusting, loathsome Low-han. If you were a corporate client, would you even consider using her for representation? Her law firm must be so embarrassed.....

Alright Holly, The American people just put YOU in the same category as loser Lindsay, by wimping out and protecting Lindsay again. Your part of the problem now.
Where is your dignity? And why in the hell would you work for a loser who does not pay your fees??

Honestly Holly, you lost a ton of respect today !!
