Los Angeles: Attorney Robert Shapiro has reportedly turned his back on Lindsay Lohan by quitting as her lawyer on the eve of her surrender.
Shapiro was to step in officially in front of the court as Lohan’s new counsel as the actress prepares to surrender for her 90-day jail sentence Tuesday.
Earlier Shawn Chapman Holley, who had been representing the actress, resigned after Lohan was sentenced for violating her DUI (driving under influence) probation.
Shapiro had filed papers last week in Los Angeles Superior Court to become Lohan’s new lawyer. Accesshollywood.com reports, at that time, he indicated he was taking Lohan’s case with a condition that "she comply with the terms of probation, including a requirement of jail."
After Shapiro took over, Lohan checked into the Pickford Lofts, a sober living house founded by Shapiro.
The lawyer has refused to comment over the reports.
