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.

Lohan and Heller will wait until the very last minute. Lohan wants the dramatic effect and the attention this gets her. Problem is this is not good attention. Never is.


Prosecution has Lohan by the short hairs. They certinly wouldn't take over 6 months to make sure they have what they need if they didn't.

How can Lindsay be so stupid? Just say you made a mistake and fire his ass. One of Lindsay's many problems is that she thinks she is NEVER wrong.

Well, since she lives without regrets, I am sure she will happily take whatever sentence she is given.

If you look at many dysfunctional addicts, you see they are drawn to other misfits because they do not feel insecure. Shawn Holley is a self made success and has all of her ducks in a row...and not much older than LiLo...made her insecure. Same thing happened with Anna Nicole Smith...Even Howard Hughes if you think about it.

Wonder what all her court cost and fees add up to. My understanding this comes out of Lohans pocket. Unless she becomes a guest of the county she pays for all of this.


Remember when Lohan tried to get the state (county) to pay for her court ordered shrink. Lohan says she couldn't afford yet living in a $7800 per month condo. Sautner said no way.


Just more not going to pay my bills Lohan.

I hope she stays the course... and really pays the price this time she deserves jail time. And a treatment center for a year.

@Aaron...this is already a bad move on her part. Bottom line it's all up to her. These are her decisions and her decisions only.


There is no mistake no I was forced or talked into it crap. Lohan has only 2 choices. Either she takes what ever plea offered or her chances with the jury she insisted on having despite all Holleys advise against it.


She can't play my lawyers an idiot.

Why is everyone pinning this on Heller? Lindsay is the one who keeps screwing up. She's the criminal, not Heller.

@Pink...exactly. This is Lohan pinning her stupidity her actions, getting caught, lieing on anyone she can to take this away from her. Everyone is out to get me Lohan.


Mark Heller doesn't have a damn thing to loose only his fee Lohan would stiff on anyway.

I wonder if the judge that just gave Edward Furlong six months in jail with NO EARLY RELEASE for VOP will be Lindsay's judge?
