Report: Lindsay Lohan's lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley calls it quits

July 8, 2010 |  1:47 pm


Shawn Chapman Holley
has resigned as attorney for Lindsay Lohan, according to a Thursday report.

Holley has been beside Lohan through her recent ordeals, and on Tuesday provided a pastel shoulder to cry on when the starlet was sentenced to 90 days in jail after violating her probation from a 2007 plea deal.

Not anymore.

Holley resigned Thursday morning, TMZ says, and has been replaced by newly minted counselor Tiffany Feder-Cohen.

E-mails to Holley's office were not returned. Feder-Cohen's office had no comment in regard to joining Team Lindsay.

We dare say Holley has no ill will toward her troubled former charge, as Thursday morning she also released a statement condemning Judge Marsha Revel's Tuesday decision.

"The reality is that Ms. Lohan, like most defendants, had to balance work commitments with court requirements. To be punished so severely for doing so, particularly in light of the fact that she substantially complied with each of her probationary conditions, is harsh and unfair," Holley said

What do you think about Holley's move? Does Feder-Cohen have her work cut out for her? Tell us in the comments section below.
