Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen both want to save their marriage. Yale Galanter, Mueller's attorney, told the Associated Press,"they're very much in love. They want to try to work it out and want to have the best shot at doing that." Sheen's lawyer, Richard Cummins, confirmed to the AP that his client also wants to patch things up -- and he is asking to amend a restraining order that prevents the pair from communicating.

"I will tell you that both parties want to attempt to work this out," Galanter continued. "Whatever was said and whatever happened, I'm chalking it up as one really bad night."

TMZ was the first to report that Mueller, 32, hired Galanter, the criminal defense attorney who once represented OJ Simpson. Galanter may assist Mueller should she be charged with making a false police report about the now-infamous Christmas Day incident with Sheen, in which she accused him of threatening her with a knife.

Galanter tells TMZ that Mueller in no way concocted or exaggerated her story of Sheen's threats. Instead, he says, she did "minimize her story, like many wives in a similar situation do, when they realize their husband could go to jail."

The ugliest family feuds of all time

The famed attorney notes to TMZ that his client did not realize her husband would be arrested when she made her frantic 911 call -- but the star's wife has absolutely no plans to recant her story.
