Britney Spears has secured a victory in her conservatorship battle.

A judge ruled she could appoint her own lawyer to help end her father Jamie Spears' control of her affairs.

Spears phoned back into a Los Angeles court, after last month's explosive testimony in which she pleaded with a judge to end the years-long conservatorship.

Spears, speaking to the court again via telephone, said she wanted to “press charges” against her father.

“I’m angry and I will go there,” the singer said, even telling the court at one point she thought “they were trying to kill me”.

“If the court doesn’t see this as abuse … I don’t know what is,” said Spears.

During yesterday’s hearing, Judge Brenda Penny accepted the resignation of Spears’ previous attorney Sam Ingham.

Judge Penny signaled she would accept the singer's new choice, Mathew Rosengart, to represent her.

Rosengart told AFP on the sidelines of the hearing that he would file a petition “as soon as possible” to remove Jamie Spears as the conservator.

The attorney has previously represented celebrity clients like Sean Penn and Steven Spielberg.

Following the judge’s ruling, Spears took to Instagram to share a video of herself with the caption: “Coming along, folks … coming along!!!!! New with real representation today … I feel GRATITUDE and BLESSED!!!!”

She signed her post with the phrase adopted by her loyal fans for the first time: “#FreeBritney.”
