Lindsay Lohan - Lindsay Lohan Officially Re-hires Shawn Holley As Her Lawyer

Embattled actress Lindsay Lohan has officially re-hired her former lawyer Shawn Holley after the legal eagle stepped up to help the actress avoid another jail stint following her rehab debacle last week (ends03May13).

The Mean Girls star faced a race against time to check into a court-ordered treatment programme by her deadline on Thursday (02May13) after ditching an approved New York clinic for the Morningside Recovery centre in Newport Beach - only to walk out of the Orange County facility less than an hour after arriving.

She subsequently checked into the Betty Ford Clinic after Lohan's mum called on Holley to step in and help her daughter avoid another arrest. The lawyer managed to find the star a place at the Rancho Mirage, California rehab facility - prompting prosecutors to drop their threat to obtain a warrant for Lohan's arrest.

Holley resumed her duties as Lohan's lawyer on Monday morning (06May13) and attended a hearing in Los Angeles County Superior Court, where Judge James R. Dabney officially removed the actress' other legal representative, Mark Heller, from the case.

Judge Dabney even praised Holley for helping to keep the actress out of trouble, saying, "You snatched her from the precipice."

Prosecutors expressed concern over the 30-day treatment programmes provided by Betty Ford bosses, but Holley insisted there were three-month sessions available, and the judge gave his approval to the facility, reports Tmz.com.

Holley originally quit as Lohan's lawyer in January (13) after her client asked New York-based attorney Heller to take over her case, just a day before her plea hearing to fight probation violation charges.

It subsequently emerged that Heller was not licensed to practice law in Los Angeles and he had to be sponsored by a local law firm to take up the job.

A source close to Lohan and her ongoing legal woes tells Wenn, "Shawn Holley is a rock star. Very few people could have pulled off what she did to get Lindsay into the Betty Ford Clinic."
