Lindsay Lohan's New Lawyer

I Got a Foodie Socialite

To Sponsor Me!

1/22/2013 11:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's new lawyer just got a sponsor which he needs to practice law in California -- but  we've learned the woman who's vouching for him hasn't practiced law for at least 17 years.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay fired Shawn Holley last week and hired New York attorney Mark Heller, to rep her in her lying-to-cops criminal case in L.A.. Heller can ONLY rep Lindsay if he gets a sponsor who is admitted to practice law in California, but worry not -- there are more than 200,000 to choose from.

Then again ... Heller may have had problems finding a sponsor, because the person he got hasn't practiced law in California since 1996. 

Her name is Lindsay Berger Sacks. She was admitted to practice law in 1994 and became an inactive member of the bar 2 years later -- meaning she couldn't practice anymore. 

Berger Sacks -- who we're told is a pretty big L.A. socialite and co-founder of the Doheny Dining Club -- reactivated her membership last Tuesday ... we've learned it's just 3 days before Heller filed legal docs to represent Lindsay. Heller listed Berger Sacks as his sponsor.

It looks like Holley is out of the picture because in his legal docs, Heller is asking that Lindsay's case file be forwarded to Berger Sacks so he can get cracking on the case.

Berger Sacks did not get back to us for comment.

oh boy. Too easy. The jokes write themselves with this story. So there IS such a thing as bad publicity.

Ask Harvey how long he's been an "inactive" lawyer. Decades. Look it up.

Since when does a Walmart cashier qualify for sponsorship of an attorney?

Am I the only person who is just waiting for the moment when Lohan has her NY mob lawyer and this air head ditz sitting on either side of her when she pleads NOT GUILTY for the car crash, lying to police, and obstruction counts?
Lindsay Lohan - not just a whore, tax deadbeat, serial liar, drug addict, alcoholic, thief, disease carrier, but also an impeccable chooser of lawyers.

Well, lets face it, Lindsay can't afford Shawn Holly anymore and she's decided she would rather take her self to trial so...... You know, I think she's doing a great job :-) *makes popcorn*

Blohan is an idiot to fire the woman who kept her ass out of jail COUNTLESS times and hired a guy for probably $5.00 an hour. You get what you pay for and guess what? LiLo is going to pay DEARLY!

This woman is butt-ugly. I am sorry, I usually don't comment on what people look like but........UGGG!!! She has a huge nose and "crazy eyes" and doesn't know fashion from trash. Just what LiLo needs to get her ass where it belongs, back in jail.

Holley vs Lohan will be the next lawsuit coming Lohan's way. Poor Shawn is gonna have to sue her just to get paid. I bet it was really Shawn who put her foot down, for back payment of services rendered, instead of Lohan firing her.

Hey Nicole -

May I suggest you just take a header off the Tower Bridge into the Thames right now, instead of waiting for Feb 27?
