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."

Anybody who would try to convince that this Heller guy did NOT serve as the template for Lionel Hutz on the Simpson's wouldn't a very strong case. His case would be hellered.

I've thought he has tried to "manipulate" people since he became her attorney. He was trying to suck up to the Judge, the Prosecutors, etc. It was just so transparent. Probably another reason the Judge had called him incompetent.

I had an attorney tell me to answer a judge by saying _____ and I immediately said "I am not going to lie to the judge". I didn't tell "officers of the court', tmz, reporters, and everyone that would listen. Just an FYI Gavin.
