Does Lindsay Lohan Need Robert Shapiro?
Attorney Robert Shapiro confirmed today he's now representing Lindsay Lohan. But, he says, he agreed to represent her only if she does her jail time and complies with her other probation terms, which includes a 3 month rehab stint after jail.
So what's Shapiro going to do for her?
Shapiro told The Associated Press on Friday he had agreed to represent Lohan only if she does her jail time and complies with the terms of her probation. He said he would help the actress get treatment to accomplish long-term recovery and sobriety.
"Ms. Lohan is suffering from a disease that I am all too familiar with," said Shapiro, whose son Brent died in 2005. "Hopefully I can be of assistance."
Sounds like he's going to be her drug counselor, not her lawyer. And how is this different than what Shawn Chapman Holley proposed? I can't imagine he's not going to try to at least postpone her jail sentence until she's out of her current rehab facility. If he's not, then why does she need a lawyer at this point at all?
