Lindsay Lohan 'owes lawyer $300k'

Los Angeles -  Lindsay Lohan reportedly owes her former attorney $300 000 in unpaid legal fees.

The actress recently sacked Shawn Holley and replaced her with New York based lawyer Mark Heller, but the troubled star is said to owe a substantial sum to Shawn.

A source told RadarOnline: "Lindsay owes Shawn over $300k in legal fees and she hasn't made any payments to her in over six months.

"Lindsay hadn't paid anything for any of the work Shawn has done on her three new criminal charges of lying to cops, in connection with her car accident in Santa Monica last summer. Shawn has kept Lindsay out of jail for over five years now and she has no idea how good she has had it.

Not paying new lawyer

"Shawn is extremely respected by judges and prosecutors and that has benefited Lindsay greatly. Lindsay's new criminal attorney, Mark Heller, isn't even based in Los Angeles and certainly doesn't have the revered reputation that Shawn does."

It has been claimed that the actress, who recently received money from Charlie Sheen to pay her tax bill, may not be paying her new lawyer.

"I suspect that Lindsay's new attorney is either representing her for a reduced fee, or not charging her at all. I think Mark wants the publicity that representing Lindsay Lohan can bring," the insider added.
