Lindsay Lohan appeared in court Wednesday morning for a hearing on three misdemeanor charges stemming from her involvement in a car accident last summer.

Lohan -- who almost skipped the hearing due to an alleged illness -- spoke only to confirm that she was satisfied with her new lawyer, the New York-based Mark Heller, whom the Mean Girls starlet brought on after firing her longtime representative, Shawn Holley, earlier this month.

Judge Stephanie Sautner, who previously sent Lohan to prison and placed her under house arrest, subsequently set a new hearing for March 1, at which Lohan is not required to appear, and a trial date for March 18.

Lohan has pleaded not guilty to lying to police, reckless driving and obstructing officers from performing their duties, all from an incident in June, in which she crashed her black Porsche into the back of a garbage truck on the Pacific Coast Highway.

As a result of the charges, Lohan's probation, for which she was placed on after she was accused of stealing a necklace from a Los Angeles-area jeweler, was revoked.

Lohan faces up to 245 days in prison, if convicted.

According to reports, Sautner will not appear at the upcoming court hearing or trial, as she is soon retiring.
