Shawn Holley has been with Lindsay for what seems like forever, and has gotten her client out of jail more times than we count. She's even received criticism for being TOO deft at steering Lindsay away from behind bars.
Lohan has apparently FIRED her long time lawyer for one with a less-than-sterling reputation named Mark Heller. A lawyer whom the New York Times described as a “menace to the public,” yet apparently is very appreciated by one of his old clients - the serial killer known as the Son Of Sam. He was also suspended from practicing law for five years for undisclosed reasons!
Lohan's old lawyer Holley, who had been representing the troubled actress on the West Coast, was literally on her way to court to try and make a sweet deal for Lohan in her lying-to-the-cops matter before she got a call from Heller that Lindsay had FIRED her.
