Lindsay Lohan has hired attorney Robert Shapiro, a member of O.J. Simpson's "dream team," to represent her as she prepares for a jail sentence for violating a 2007 drug charge, according to The Associated Press.

Shapiro told the AP that he agreed to represent Lohan on the condition that she serves her jail time and fully complies with the terms of her probation. Lohan is scheduled to begin serving a 90-day sentence on Tuesday.

Shapiro also said he would help Lohan find treatment that would aid in long-term recovery and sobriety.  "Ms. Lohan is suffering from a disease that I am all too familiar with," Shapiro, whose son Brent died of a drug overdose in 2005, told the AP. "Hopefully I can be of assistance."

Lohan has already checked into Pickford Lots, a treatment center Shapiro founded after his son's death.

Shapiro replaces Lohan's former attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, who also worked on the Simpson trial, in which the football star was acquitted of the murders of his ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ronald Goldman. Holley resigned shortly after Lohan was sentenced, calling the judgment harsh and unfair.
