Lindsay Lohan Asks Chicago Attorney for Help



    Lindsay Lohan Asks Chicago Attorney for Help
    Superior Court Judge Marsha Reve sentenced Lindsay Lohan to 90 days in jail July 6 after ruling she violated probation in a 2007 drug case by failing to attend court-ordered alcohol education classes.

    Lindsay Lohan is reaching out to a Chicago defense attorney for help staying out of jail.

    The Sun-Times reports that Lohan personally called Stuart V. Goldberg, a Chicago-based attorney with a national reputation for winning tough cases.

    But Lohan was already sentenced to 90 days in jail for breaking her parole. She's supposed to begin serving that sentence July 20 -- but it seems she'll do all she can to avoid it.

    Goldberg told the paper Lohan is an "exquisite, flawed, broken woman-child." And he thinks he could keep her out of jail.

    When asked whether Lohan would consider taking a reduced 30-day sentence, Goldberg said he didn't like "thinking jail time."

    Goldberg said he hasn't been officially asked to represent Lohan, but he did spend about 7 hours talking to her and her family on the phone.
