Brooke Mueller has hired a lawyer -- but it's not why you think. After a disturbing fight with her husband Charlie Sheen on Christmas morning -- one that allegedly got violent -- Brooke's hired attorney, Yale Galanter, says the new mom wants to work things out with the actor.
"Brooke and Charlie are very passionate about each other, they love each other and want to try and save their marriage," Galanter told PEOPLE. "They had a bad night and want to get beyond it. They want to try and resolve their issues."
The lawyer has filed papers in Aspen, where the incident took place, to alter the protective order put in place after Charlie was arrested and accused of threatening Brooke with a knife. He says Charlie and Brooke want to work on their problems privately.
"They have absolutely gorgeous little babies and will do all they can to work out their problems," Galanter said. "I filed papers so the couple can see each other immediately and work through the issues. I hope to meet with Charlie's lawyer in court in the next day or so, but probably not before Monday."
Meanwhile, a friend of Charlie's says the actor is on the same page as his wife. "He has two little boys and he does not want to get divorced again," the pal said. "Charlie feels awful. He let himself down by drinking ... [And] he wants to be with his kids."
Should Charlie and Brooke try again? Chime in below!
