Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer Calls Sentence "Harsh and Unfair" -- Then Quits!

After losing Lohan's case, attorney Shawn Chapman Holley is out the door, and a new lawyer will represent the troubled star

Looks like Lindsay Lohan's lawyer knows a sinking ship when she sees one.

After releasing a statement defending the actress against, what she called, a "harsh and unfair" sentence of 90 days in jail, Shawn Chapman Holley packed up her briefcase and wiped her hands clean of the Lohan drama.

"Ms. Lohan and I are extremely disappointed in the sentence handed down by Judge Revel," she said early Thursday. "We believe that the penalty is far harsher than what others would have received under similar circumstances. The reality is that Ms. Lohan, like most defendants, had to balance work commitments with court requirements. To be punished so severely for doing so, particularly in light of the fact that she substantially complied with each of her probationary conditions, is harsh and unfair. That said, Ms. Lohan is prepared to serve her jail time and to comply with the Court's orders."

Sounds like she had her back, right? Well, not for long, as just hours later a rep for the attorney confirmed that Holley had resigned.

But Lohan wasn't lawyer-less for long. The troubled starlet seemed to find someone to pick up the slack fairly quickly.

"We got a call yesterday from a female identifying herself as Tiffany Feder-Cohen," L.A. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore told People.com. "She introduced herself as Lindsay Lohan's new attorney. I can't get into details about why she called, but the bottom line is that we at the sheriff's department only do what the courts instruct us to do."

Sources close to Lohan tell People that the actress is determined not to do time and has plans to appeal -- and hopes she has found a new attorney to make it happen.
