Casey Anthony Lawyers

Champagne Celebration!

7/6/2011 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony's defense team was SO fired up about the HUGE not guilty verdict in the child murder case yesterday ... they rolled across the street and started POPPIN' BUBBLY!!!

TMZ has obtained photos showing attorney Jose Baez and his team having a champagne toast at the Terrace 390 restaurant ... located right across the street from the Orange County Courthouse in Florida.

Our friend Jane Velez-Mitchell was outside the restaurant doing the play-by-play for HLN during the celebration.

Of course, yesterday was a big day for Baez ... and Anthony ... who was found not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter back in 2008.

Minutes before the toast, Baez gave a news conference and told reporters, "There are no winners in this case. Caylee has passed on far, far too soon. Two-year-old Caylee's death should not be lost in her mother's requital."

So, after making that statement ... still think it was OK for Baez to raise a glass in triumph?

If it weren't concerning a child, I don't think it would be in bad taste. But there's a little angel that will never get the chance to grow up. Just because this was a "victory" for them, it isn't a victory that a precious life was snuffed out before it could be lived. This case shocked the country, and they knew that their actions would be seen. Because of that, it is definitely a disgusting thing to do.

I think they have worked on this case for 3 years and deserve a little toast as a task was completed! It was a victory for them!

Disgusting

I think they are just following the path of bad taste they have shown throughout the whole trial. They are being consistent. I cannot get over the fact that the American Justice system has done this AGAIN. OJ, Lindsay it is the laughing stock.

Very bad taste. They don't really care about Caylee Anthony, it was all about winning. :/

Bad taste in doing this publicly. They did win -and are entitled to celebrate - but should have been back at the office - behind closed doors. Such a highly controversial verdict -this is just inciting the whackos like Nancy Grace and her ilk.

why shouldn't they? They did their jobs well. You guys at TMZ have morally questionable jobs, stalking people with camera etc, and I'm sure you celebrate your "scoops" in your local bar.

I understand that this is a big win for their firm and will bring in high dollar clients in the future. But, have some f-ing class and take it somewhere else! Seriously? Right across from the courthouse?

What a bunch of sleaze bags!!!!

No Justice for Caylee!

Quit bring OJ into a case about a child's death. Caylee was an innocent child. Nicole Brown Simpson was a slutbag drug addict who owed (along with Faye Resnick) drug money.

you both are disgusting. a LITTLE GIRL IS DEAD. Period. Whether they sold their souls to the devil to get their disgusting liar MURDERER client off, celebrate in private. Watching them high five IN the courtroom, and pea**** it out there was bad enough. Take a moment to grieve for the little girl.
And as for "working for 3 years". They were and will be paid mightily to get that piece of crap off.
The jurors, the lawyers and that s*** bag mother should all be shot.
Disgusting!

Tacky and trashy just like their client. The idiots in Florida may not be able to see the truth, but the more educated parts of our country know the truth and I hope they all burn in he11 for their part in this.

Why would Defense Attorney's care anything about the murdered victim? I am absolutely sure they all are very proud of themselves as well. CALEY WHO???? They will answer at some time to the Almighty... after writing books and collecting millions on how they saved a murderer from the death penalty.
