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.

Lindsay it is really good to see you have a mind of your own, Heller was fired by almost all of his former clients with the exception of you and Jon Gosslin, It worked out great for Kate.

They make a perfect team together, of nincompoops. I hope Heller is able to get Lindsay the jail time she deserves.

Thank GOD she's keeping him. Right after all many times being shot down by Holley, after the baby went screaming, crying, and begging for her to come back to her. Typical Lindsay think. The guy is great despite the judge saying he's an idiot. Take it to trial, take the plea. Neither one will be pleasant. She's still in world of denial, this time the worst I've ever seen. Unless she wants the public defender in CA, she'll have to stand by her man because NO attorney in the entire state wants a thing to do with her. She should know, she's tried to get one to replace Heller right after he showed his mad lawyering skills during the pre-trial. She wanted him only for that day in front of Sautner and then went running to Shawn only to be kicked to the curb then got on the phone and DUI attorneys won't even help her. Can't wait!

If Eddie Furlong can get hard time, there's clearly not "overcrowding" in every LA jail. Save a bunk for LL.
