Michael Lohan: I'm Not Backing Off Anything

Michael Lohan's lawyer, Lisa Bloom tells TMZ in no uncertain terms ... Michael is not backing down or backing off his stand to get Lindsay into rehab.

TMZ reported that Michael was backing off his threat to force the issue.  We were told the lawyers were "trying to resolve things amicably."  But resolving it amicably does not mean Michael is backing down or backing off, Bloom says.

Bloom tells TMZ, "There has been no agreement as to anything.  All options remain open to save and protect Lindsay.  That is Michael's #1 priority."

Bloom adds, "Michael wants Lindsay to go to rehab.  If she doesn't, all options remain open.  He loves her.  Her decision not to meet with him or go into rehab puts him in a very difficult position."
