Lohan gets a new attorney ahead of a Monday court hearing
LOS ANGELES (CNS) – A Southern California attorney who is a Fox News legal commentator may attempt to intercede as Lindsay Lohan’s attorney at a Monday court hearing, at the request of the actress’s father, it was reported today.
The attorney, David Wohl, has been retained by the 26-year-old actress’s father, Michael Lohan, according to the Riverside Press-Enterprise. The father told the newspaper he is unhappy with the legal representation his daughter has received.
Wohl lives in the Riverside County city of Corona, and has offices in Riverside, the newspaper reported.
In prior court appearances, Lohan’s New York City attorney Mark Heller was criticized by the judge for being unfamiliar with California criminal court rules, and making procedural errors.
Lindsay Lohan faces possible trial Monday on three misdemeanor counts stemming from a crash on Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica. She is charged with willfully resisting, obstructing or delaying an officer; providing false information to an officer and reckless driving.
She is also accused of violating her probation in a misdemeanor jewelry theft case.
