Lindsay Lohan's New Lawyer

I Got a Foodie Socialite

To Sponsor Me!

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.

Yup    

And dumbass whorehan continues to make very stupid decisions. This one, unfortunately, is monetarily based; she owes her old attorney over $300k that she hasn't made a payment on, so she fired her to get a formerly disbarred NY ham & egger (who's sponsored in California by what looks like an attention whoring reality tv actress) who will take on her cases for free. Only problem is, you get what you pay for. Whorehan is getting a moron for an attorney; she's guaranteed to lose every legal case against her. What a complete & total DUMBASS...

I'll wait until Shawn makes a statement confirming she is no longer Lindsay's lawyer. There is no way I'm taking TMZ word for anything especially when they say " it looks like Holley is out of the picture" I'll wait for confirmation from Shawn.
