Lindsay Lohan hires celebrity lawyer Shapiro

Celebrity lawyer Robert Shapiro said Friday he had agreed to represent Lindsay Lohan, who is headed to jail next week for violating probation in a 2007 drug case.
Shapiro, a key figure on O.J. Simpson's legal "dream team" in 1995, told The Associated Press he agreed to represent Lohan only if she does her jail time and complies with the terms of her probation.
He also 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 of a drug overdose in 2005. "Hopefully I can be of assistance."
Lohan is scheduled to begin serving a 90-day sentence on Tuesday.
Shapiro has represented numerous celebrity clients and has been working for substance abuse treatment since the death of his son. He established the Pickford Lofts sober living facility, a treatment center where Lohan is temporarily staying.
In representing Lohan, Shapiro is replacing attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, another veteran of the Simpson trial in which the former football star was acquitted of the murders of his ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ronald Goldman.
