Even her lawyers agree — Lindsay Lohan is beyond control.

The ever-embattled actress faces a pending lawsuit after paparazzo Grigor Balyan claimed he was run over by Lohan's car in 2010, an accident he alleged left him badly injured. Though Lohan was riding shotgun, Balyan's lawyer, Neil Steiner, has said the star is still at fault because the driver was operating under her instruction.

But as the suit has sat on the back burner, Balyan recently filed documents accusing Lohan of partying while avoiding her legal woes. Now one of the lawyers to the Liz & Dick actress, Julia Azrael, is pleading that she should not be held responsible for Lohan's lack of cooperation with the courts.

"I have made many efforts to convince Lohan to appear for her deposition," Azrael, who represents Lohan against Balyan, writes in court documents. "I do not know how to reach her directly."

The attorney goes on to explain that he has no direct access to Lohan. Instead, Azrael is tasked with going through the star's New York-based lawyer, Mark Heller, to reach Lohan. But all efforts have come to no avail, Azrael claimed in the documents.

Balyan has called upon the court to fine Lohan and Azrael for evading the pending lawsuit. Now the decision lies in a judge's hands to determine whether or not Azrael should be held accountable for Lohan's AWOL status.

Lohan is still facing three misdemeanor charges stemming from her involvement in a car accident last summer. During a January hearing, Lohan 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probation, for which she was placed on after she was accused of stealing a necklace from a Los Angeles-area jeweler, was revoked. If convicted of charges, Lohan faces up to 245 days in prison. She is due back in court on March 18.
