Lindsay Lohan Fires Her Saving Grace: Shawn Holley

Seriously, I almost wish we were making this up!  "Actress" Lindsay Lohan fired the one and only person who had her back--attorney Shawn Holley.

Facing criminal prosecution charges on both coasts, Lilo has hired New York attorney Mark Heller to oversee all of her legal woes.

Heller was reportedly instructed by the 'Liz & Dick' celeb to notify Holley via legal correspondence that he is taking over Miss Lohan's legal matters.  Lindsay signed the document that was initiated Monday.

Shawn has saved Lindsay's butt more times than we can count.  In fact, Holley has taken some criticism of being "too effective" in keeping Lindsay out of jail for the jewelry heist and a string of probation violations.

The new legal eagle comes with some baggage of his own.   In 1994 he was suspended for five years from practicing law and according to the New York Times has been called a "menace to the public" by other lawyers.  That comment would strongly suggest that Lohan and her new lawyer have something in common.

It didn't take Lindsay long to realize her had been hoodwinked by Heller.  She claims she never authorized him to fire Holley, a woman she considers a "second mother" and her saving grace.   With a probation violation hearing slated for today in L.A., Lohan instructed her New York lawyer to rescind the first letter to Shawn Holley immediately.

Fun fact: the starlet hasn't paid a dime in legal fees to Holley in the past six months and has amassed $300,000 in legal fees.  Seeking celebrity justice doesn't come cheap.

This seems like a perfect time to haul out some of Lindsay's hall of shame photos for your viewing pleasure.
