Zimmerman's Lawyers

Money Is No Object

... Anymore!

7/17/2013 6:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

They asked the public for HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS for George Zimmerman's defense ... but now that the case is over, GZ's lawyers are living the high life-- eating at one of NYC's most expensive restaurants.

TMZ cameras rolled as Mark O'Mara, Don West and the rest of the team left the famous Nello restaurant in NYC earlier today ... where the lobster bisque will run you a cool $43.

Sources tell TMZ the gang was seen drinking champagne inside the restaurant ... and when it comes to the bubbly at Nello -- even the cheap stuff is expensive.

In fact, Nello is where ultra-rich stars like Jay-Z and Alex Rodriguez are often seen chowing down.

On the way out, the lawyers told us they still believe the jury in the Trayvon Martin case made the right decision -- "[Zimmerman] was not guilty from day one."

They also said the food at Nello's was excellent.

The media is destroying this country one story at a time... Everything reported now is for shock and money.. Look at the Trayvon Martin story.. It was a not a major story until the media decided to make it racial and cover it 24-7.. Prior to the media's coverage nobody cared, after the media coverage everyone had chosen a side and sadly wished ill will on the other side... BAN THE MEDIA!

These men did their jobs. They completed a stressful and very hard case that they will most likely be scrutinized for by the public. These won a case and they deserve to celebrate. They fought for what they believe in and they succeeded. It is ridiculous to criticize them for celebrating their victory and having an opinion.

GZ used some of that money for his living expenses. The lawyers also had to pay for the expert testimony about the gunshot evidence. They also had to pay staff that did research, etc. for them. This case went on for 18 moonths. I'm guessiing there wasn't much if any $ left for the lawyers. Of course they should celebrate!

Good for them! Hope they have a nice breakfast tomorrow. The deserve it. It's not their fault for anything. The prosecutors did not do their jobs. Period.
How soon we forget OJ and Casey Anthony.

Fox News paid for their dinner. Sean Hannity paid for their breakfast. The husband of Juror 37, who went to law school with O'Mara, one of Zimmerman's lawyers, paid for their drinks.
And Trayvon Martin paid with his life.
