Los Angeles - Amanda Bynes' lawyer insists she is "normal" and "fine".
The 27-year-old former actress has worried family and friends with her bizarre antics over the past year but her attorney Richard Hutton, who is representing her over an alleged DUI (driving under the influence) case in Los Angeles from April 2012, believes reports about her are exaggerated.
He told People.com: "I think Amanda's fine. I have no problems with her whatsoever. She's a fine client.
"Every time I've talked to her, I've had nice, attorney-client normal relations with her."
'Blown out of proportion'
While the Easy A star was charged with attempted evidence tampering, reckless endangerment and marijuana possession in court last week, after being arrested at her New York City apartment, Richard - who does not represent her in New York - believes the incident "has been blown out of proportion".
He added: "The New York case doesn't seem like much of a case, really. I mean, come on.
"Even if you believe everything you hear, it's something that amounts to virtually nothing.
"And it's my understanding there's not much evidence to back that case up. There's no physical evidence to back it up. I understand there's no marijuana, no pipe."
The next hearing in the DUI case has been set for July 18.
