Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer

Target In Witness Tampering Investigation

3/18/2013 1:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's attorney Mark Heller is in the crosshairs of a possible witness tampering investigation ... after allegations surfaced that he tried to manipulate Lindsay's former assistant into lying on the stand ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the Santa Monica City Attorney will be launching an investigation and will interview Lohan's ex-assistant Gavin Doyle tomorrow in the presence of police.

We're told ... prosecutors believe Heller may have approached Gavin and tried to get him to admit that he was the one driving the vehicle when Lohan's Porsche crashed into a big rig on Pacific Coast Highway last summer.

TMZ has learned Gavin has told multiple people about the alleged witness tampering ... including an officer of the court.

As for Heller, he has strongly stated that any accusation of witness tampering on his part is "crazy."

So, all in all, Heller had a better plea than Shawn Holley. Less rehab time.

And wasn't it sweet the way he fought for future expungement even though there isn't a chance in hell she's going to complete all these conditions?

Is Kanye MiLo going to be shunned by the Hollywood community for hijacking Heller's presser?

He's already shunned? Nevermind.

I think Mike Lohan means well, though he is just as self-interested as he is interested in his daughter Lindsay, but he likely fouled up the investigation by making it public. Now, the Heller parties have time to get to Gavin and Lindsay and coach them as to what to say in this investigation. If Mike had kept quiet, maybe something would have come from this. I guess it still could, but I think Mr. Lohan's outburst likely compromises the investigation (though quite entertaining to me...).

Say what you will about Michael but he was and is more articulate than Heller. And it appears he was speaking the truth. Where was Dina today? Was she there?

This is how Smeggy is going to get out of the plea deal. They'll prove, with Gavin's bullshyte submission that Heller is guilty of tampering. She'll get Holly back and the whole plea deal will be quashed and another "TRIAL" date reset. Wow, she really did have an ace up her sleeve, huh?

This guy's a really bad attorney. I've seen first year law students representing themselves who handled themselves better than this.

Given that? Believe it.

Now we know why the prosecution went for a plea deal. They probably weren't 100% sure about Gavin's testimony.

He was thinking about pleading Global Transient Amnesia.

I knew she didn't have the ballz to take this to trial.

The only time she has "the ballz" is when they come with a schlong stuffed down her throat
