Lindsay Lohan’s new lawyer: She has a disease

Lindsay  Lohan’s new lawyer thinks she is suffering from a disease. Robert Shapiro, who announced he had officially agreed to take on the Mean Girls actress’ case Friday, has confirmed she will still go to prison on Tuesday, but he hopes to help her implement a “treatment approach” for her long term sobriety and wellbeing.

“I have agreed to represent Ms. Lohan on the condition that she complies with all of the terms of her probation, including a requirement of jail time that was imposed by Judge Marsha Revel,” he said.

“Ms. Lohan is suffering from a disease that I am all too familiar with. Hopefully, I can be of assistance to Ms. Lohan and Judge Revel in implementing a treatment approach recommended by medical professionals for Ms. Lohan’s long term recovery and sobriety.”

Earlier this month, Lindsay was sentenced to spend 90 days in prison, followed by 90 days in rehab, for violating her probation for her 2007 driving under the influence (DUI) charge.

The 24-year-old star checked into Pickford Lofts sober living house on Wednesday, which is owned by Shapiro.

The lawyer — who helped successfully defend O.J. Simpson in 1994 — founded the center in West Hollywood, California after he lost his son Brent to substance abuse.

Lindsay’s estranged father, Michael Lohan, admitted yesterday he doesn’t think a sober house is what his daughter needs to get well.

“I’m happy that she’s taking positive steps, but a sober house is not a rehab and it does not detox someone off prescription drugs,” he said.

“It serves no purpose other than staying clean off non-prescription drugs and alcohol. In Lindsay’s case, the prescription drugs are the problem.”
