The Manhattan Madam, who supplied girls to disgraced Governor Eliot Spitzer, is warning Lindsay in an open letter, saying – get a new attorney.
OPEN LETTER TO LINDSAY LOHAN FROM THE MANHATTAN MADAM (edited version)
While we don’t personally know each other, I feel compelled to inform you about your choice in attorneys, Mark Jay Heller. If you care about your freedom- you will fire him immediately and retain competent representation.
My name is Kristin Davis, perhaps you may have heard of me, I am the Ex-Manhattan Madam who was arrested in the wake of arrests involving Former NY Governor Eliot Spitzer – I also ran for Governor of NY in 2010 and Lifetime recently did a special on my life.
Mark Heller used to represent me. He did nothing to get me out of jail when I was arrested because he was more concerned with generating press for himself. He left me sitting in Riker’s Island for 4 months despite dozens of pleas from my family and myself to file a bail reduction.
After 4 months of his self-publicizing incompetence, I fired him. I was out on reduced bail 4 days later.
After my arrest, Mark Heller went around publicizing that he was my attorney (as well as the Son of Sams) and got himself some very high profile clients as a result. What those particular news stories didn’t tell you is that he got FIRED from all of those cases because he is an awful attorney who puts getting his own press before the welfare of his clients.
I have been in the position you were in – in the precinct waiting for an attorney to help me get out. Perhaps you didn’t know Mr. Heller because he certainly is a hawk and if he had saw the news about you-would run for the precinct to offer his services free of charge – or be vague about fees to get you on the hook as his client.
I hope you retain competent counsel because it’s the most important thing in making sure you stay out of jail. Take it from me who spent 4 months in Rikers because my attorney lied to me and my family about bail and filed ridiculous motions which had no chance in winning just to get press. I made the wrong choice in attorneys by choosing Mark Jay Heller -don’t follow in my footsteps. Your freedom is at stake.
