Former Lohan lawyer refuses to represent actress again

Lindsay Lohan's ex-lawyer has refused to represent her again.

The 'Liz & Dick' actress admitted to making a mistake in firing long-time legal representative Shawn Holley - after learning her new attorney doesn't have license to practice law in California - but her former lawyer has declined her pleas to return, TMZ.com reports.

Lohan, 26, hired New York-based attorney Mark Heller, who informed Holley of her firing in a termination letter last week, just as she was on her way to the courthouse to negotiate a plea in the actress' ongoing legal dispute in which she is accused of lying to police.

Holley is reportedly in the midst of filing paperwork to withdraw from the case and has rebuffed Lohan's requests to return as her legal counsel.

The troubled star was charged with lying to police officials when she was involved in a car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway near Los Angeles in June 2012.

She was arrested after telling officers she was in the passenger's seat, when it is alleged that she drove the car.

Despite her employment being terminated, Holley represented Lohan in court last week, entering a not guilty plea on her behalf.

She told the judge she still technically represented the actress as she had not formally been removed from the case by the judge, which stopped the judge from issuing a bench warrant for Lohan's arrest.

It was recently reported that 'The Canyons' actress owes her former lawyer $300,000 (€225,166) in unpaid bills.
