Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley PRAISED By Judge For Snatching Starlet "From The Precipice!"

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal MattersRehab

The world has pretty much collectively agreed that it's a straight-up MIRACLE that Lindsay Lohan made it safely into the Betty Ford Center to begin her 90-day sentence in lockdown rehab before a warrant for her arrest was issued, and apparently, the judge handling her probation violation case, Jim Dabney, agrees!

So much so, in fact, that he told the woman who made it all possible, Shawn Chapman Holley, that she single-handedly SAVED her client from certain jail time!

As we all know, it was looking pretty grim for the troubled starlet when she ran away from the unlicensed-for-treatment Morningside Recovery facility the morning she was due to begin her stay, all while her lawyer at the time, Mark Heller, was in the courtroom lying through his teeth about how "ensconced" she was "in the bosom" of the facility! Luckily, LiLo was smart enough to call the attorney she fired and beg her to be taken back on as a client, which led to her making it back into Betty Ford and in compliance with the court by the skin of her teeth!

According to new reports, Judge Dabney was so impressed with Holley's quick maneuvering that he told her this morning:

Lindsay Lohan Returns To Betty Ford Center! Her FIRST Photo From Rehab HERE!

We don't know how she managed to yet again slither her way out of trouble, but despite all of the odds stacked against her, Lindsay Lohan made it to the court-approved Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage Thursday night!

As we've reported, the troubled starlet went through a pretty harrowing 24 hours, after she walked out on the unlicensed Morningside Recovery after two minutes that same morning, then fired attorney Mark Heller in lieu of the incredibly loyal and patient Shawn Chapman Holley!

But right before a warrant could be issued for her arrest, she was safely and securely

Lindsay Lohan Avoids Arrest Warrant By Checking Into Betty Ford Clinic — The SAME Rehab That Accused Her Of Assault!

lindsay lohan bettyford

Looks like Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White is going to have to throw out that warrant we know he was ready to issue for Lindsay Lohan's arrest!

Because it appears that following her last-minute legal circus, which resulted in her canning of attorney Mark Heller and immediate re-hiring of Shawn Chapman Holley, the troubled starlet has been signed, sealed, and delivered to her new, locked-down home for 90 days: the Betty Ford Clinic!

In fact, while there's yet to be an official confirmation, insiders claim that Lindsay actually made it to the Rancho Mirage facility before midnight last night…which means that she fulfilled her obligation to be enrolled by May 2nd!

That's right! Despite telling Morningside Recovery that she didn't need rehab, sources close to her now assert that she's FINALLY ready to cooperate and stop making the lives of everyone around her miserable!

And it's all thanks to Miz Holly!

Lindsay Lohan Does NOT Need A "Get Out Of Jail Free" Card…Because She's INNOCENT!

lindsay-lohan-claims-innocent-will-not-plea-bargain-court-case

At least, according to Lindsay Lohan, that is!

And we all know that her definition is "innocent" is a FAR CRY from how the rest of us interpret the word!

But to the surprise of no one, the troubled starlet is once again playing a dangerous game of Russian Roulette with the prosecution in her latest legal drama - as she's due back in court later this month to finally resolve the case involving her June car crash on the PCH - and it looks as though despite the best efforts of her long-suffering, possibly-fired attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, LiLo is pretty much securing herself some SERIOUS jail time!

As we've reported, Holley got sacked right by her client right before she was able to negotiate a plea bargain with prosecutors, which apparently, would have kept her out of jail so long as she agreed to six months of lock-down rehab!

And even though sources with law enforcement maintain the offer is still available to Lindsay, regardless of her current representation

Jimmy Kimmel Reveals The TRUTH Behind Lindsay Lohan's Attorney Drama! Watch HERE!

Well, we think Shawn Chapman Holley should be pleased with ONE aspect of this HIGHlarity!

At least someone is FINALLY recognizing her YEARS of tireless, non-stop and dedicated legal work that has surely helped Lindsay Lohan stay out of jail…well, for the most part, anyway!

We all watched with bated breath yesterday to find out what would come of Lindsay's latest court drama, which was only complicated by the fact that the troubled starlet owed her long-suffering lawyer over $300,000 in legal fees, yet still fired her…in lieu of being represented by lawyer Mark Heller, who, by the way, isn't even allowed to practice law in the state of California!

Well, as it turned out, the legally-illiterate LiLo was too, ahem, 'indisposed' herself yesterday to submit the plea, so somehow convinced her trooper of an ex-attorney to get out of bed last minute and do it FOR her…and on last night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the late-night funnyman paid tribute to Mz Chapman Holley for pretty much being the most patient person in the effing world!

Ch-ch-check out his comments on all of the choas (above)!

Believe us! The last two seconds MAKE IT!

LOLz!

Lindsay Lohan Admits That She's Hit Rock Bottom…But Still Blames Everyone But Herself!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanDrugsLegal MattersSad Sad

lindsay-lohan-admits-life-out-of-control

The first step toward recovery is admitting you have a problem, and perhaps, FINALLY after all this time, Lindsay Lohan may be getting ready to do just that!

Well, maybe not entirely!

But a start is a start, right?

Sources close to the troubled starlet reveal that she truly thought she was in the clear after she completed the terms of her formal probation back in March, but has finally come around to reality and is said to be calling her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, repeatedly in tears because she knows her life is out of control!

Of course, to her detriment, she STILL is blaming her problems on being influenced by bad friends and provoked by "opportunists," all the while asserting that she doesn't have problems with drugs or alcohol!

Then HOW exactly does LiLo think she can get better?

According to her

Lindsay Lohan Is "Freaked Out" About Possibly Spending Christmas Behind Bars!

lindsay-lohan-freaked-out-prospect-jail-time-holidays

One would think that having been in jail before and knowing just how awful it was, Lindsay Lohan would have cleaned up her act and done everything she could to avoid making the mistakes that put her behind bars in the first place!

But as we all know, that has NOT been the case for the troubled starlet!

In fact, despite the fact that she deliberately lied to the police about her responsibility and involvement in the PCH car accident that ultimately led to her latest probation violation, she's now said to be freaking out over the very real possibility that she could be back in jail by the time Christmas and New Year's roll around, and has told her long-suffering lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, to do whatever it takes to keep her out!
