Lindsay Lohan

I'm Keeping My Lawyer

The Media Lies!!!

Lindsay Lohan
doesn't care that the judge in her criminal case and the media have called her lawyer incompetent ... she's sticking with him. 

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ ... she's angry that the media is painting Mark Heller as a nincompoop.   She says, "It's all lies."

What's more ... Lindsay doesn't care that Judge James Dabney also called Heller incompetent to practice in California.  In fact, the judge was brutally honest ... to the point he said if Lindsay keeps Heller, he'll order her to court for the next hearing to explain why she would be waiving her right to a lawyer who knows what he's doing.

As we first reported ... Michael Lohan reached out to his daughter and offered to pay for a new lawyer, but she turned him down flat.

Lindsay has 12 days to change her mind, because her criminal trial kicks off on the 18th.  If Heller screws up, Lindsay could end up in the pokey for months.

This is all pointless anyway. She could fire her lawyer and represent *herself* in court and she STILL wouldn't get any jail time.

The judge should order Lindsay to have a psychological evaluation then he will understand not only why she is keeping her lawyer but also why she made the canyons. The girl needs help and if the only way to help her is to put her in jail than put Lindsay in jail.

I guess this shows she is not off the drugs, because no sane person would willingly go through this.

Lohan won't represent herself. Then she would have no one to blame. This is typical Lohan bullshyt blaming everyone else for what she herself did.

This is what Lindsay could do now.
1. Claim the interview with the cops should be thrown out since she was under medical care.
2. Declare bankruptcy which will eliminate all debts except taxes.
3. Negotiate a huge discount on all of her state and federal taxes.
4. Live free in Mom's house after the foreclosure.
5. Flee the country for a few years and get support from her many "male friends".
6 Write a tell all book about her life.
There is always a way out, ask any Hollywood celebrity or rapper.

Is Mark Heller's defense pure ignorance? Is it genius, a distraction from the case perhaps, so they will take pity on Lindsay?

I think DUina should represent her daughter, cause, after her Dr. Phil appearance, the whole country knows how well versed she is in the letters of the law.


"Your honor, I believe that point is obsolete, and wouldn't be an issue if this was New York."


"I would like to have this case dimissed based on the fact that Lindsay's doing well. She's fine. Everything's great."


"I'm incontinent your honor? I beg to differ your honor, I am a former Rockette and I once walked into NYU to use the ladies room.?

@Jon...I thought that myself. I don't think Heller is that stupid. I thought it was a ploy that backfired on them. Find out on the 18th.

Charlie Sheen wants to help Lindsay Lohan before she spirals to disaster

Submitted by BubbleByBeverly on March 06th, 2013 –


Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan have a unique bond and special friendship together. He seems to be watching her back whenever possible to keep her out of troubling cir***stances. According to TMZ he wants to do whatever he can to prevent Lindsay from spiraling out of control. So many events seem to follow her in a negative fashion and many are self-inflicted with or without her even realizing it.

This story misepresents what happened in court. The judge told Heller he needed assistance from someone familiar with the rules of California-as opposed to NY- courts. Heller was fine with that. The judge warned that if Lindsay proceded with Heller alone she would be waving her right to appeal the verdict on grounds of incompetent counsel.
Heller will certainly take appropriate steps.
