“The family is still in the process of interviewing.”
The news may come as a surprise to Goldberg, whose rep sent RadarOnline.com a statement that Lindsay and her mother “hired Stuart V. Goldberg as her new attorney” after a meeting Friday night.
Goldberg, who is also a screenwriter and fiction-writer, is not a member of the California Bar Association, according to a search of the organization’s website.
Lindsay has been sentenced in 90 days in jail followed by 90 days in rehab for violations to the conditions of her DUI probation. She’s complained that her “human rights” have been violated and has vowed to appeal the sentence.
Her search for a new attorney follows the decision of Lohan’s respected previous attorney Shawn Chapman Holley to quit representing the troubled starlet.
