Lindsay Lohan

Cali Lawyer Makes Bid

To Save Her from Jail

3/12/2013 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0311_lindsay_marc_heller_david_gettyA California lawyer believes he's the one who can save Lindsay Lohan from jail ... and he's trying to join her legal team before she goes to trial later this month.

TMZ has learned ... California attorney David Wohl wants to join New York attorney Mark Heller when Lindsay's case is called on the 18th.  As you know ... the judge reamed Heller for his incompetence and gave him an ultimatum -- either bring in a California criminal defense attorney who knows his ass from a hole in the ground, or make Lindsay say out loud that she gives up her right to a competent lawyer.

We're told Michael Lohan found Wohl -- who's practiced criminal defense law for 25 years and has offices in Orange County -- and the lawyer is ready and willing to help.  We're told Wohl -- who has handled cases ranging from shoplifting to murder --  has been in daily contact with Heller.

But here's the snag.  Lindsay hasn't given Wohl her stamp of approval.  But even if she doesn't, Michael has asked Wohl to show up in court anyway to force the issue.

The Good News is, Lindsay will not except any help from her father. Hopefully the great news will be Lindsay takes this to trial. Only one question about house arrest what happens if Lindsay friends decide they don't want her to mooch off of them what happens to house arrest. Will she have to move back to LA or will the Judge let her Party it up in NYC?

Does it matter if Michael is asking him to go and force the issue? Doesn't Lindsay still need to approve the man so he can be a part of the case?

Good riddance!    

Stay the course, Crackie! Keep Side Show Heller as your only attorney! He's your personal 'dream team' and the attorney you so richly deserve. Keep insisting that you weren't driving the car and that it drove itself into the back of that truck! And get good and ripped on St. Patty's Day, the day before court. Don't worry about puking up green tinged vodka all over the defense table in court, or better yet, just don't show up. It will all work out perfectly for you this way. Perfectly!
