Zimmerman's Lawyers

Money Is No Object

... Anymore!

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.

They were worth every penny they were paid. If this is how they choose to relax, I hope they enjoyed it. Good lawyers are very expensive. These guys were not lazing around on the job. I could see them putting heart and soul into it, especially O'Mara.


When you are in a courtroom trying to stay cool with people playing dirty tricks on you nonstop, it helps to have a fat paycheck and a nice dinner to look forward to.


I wouldn't expect them to go to some cheap place. I hope that they feel safe in NYC. Maybe the protestor crazies won't even recognize them. I don't think any of them watched the trial.

Harvey, I like your personality, as well as your on t.v. guys. But basically at heart, you're nothing but an ole lady bitch always trying to stir up trouble and create a controversy. A bizz-bag women hanging over the back fence gossiping.

It's in very poor taste since a child is dead. It just shows the type of hicks that they are.

Celebrate the death of a teenager who according to his teachers was an A/B student. A death at the hands of an adult who initiated the conflict. Celebrate the death of someone who would have probably done something with his life. Right.

"NOT GUILTY" You wanted "Justice" people, you got it & wasted a lot of the tax payers money bringing an innocent man to trial only to reaffirm his innocence as "Not Guilty". Now you people have the audacity to make a stink on who or where this Amazing legal team have lunch, celebrate or frequent!?? Seriously get over it and for all you UnEdimicated fools making stink... Get a job, get a life and get over it and don't blame the white man for black ignorance!! This was Not a race issue and if you wanna get funky on your thinking it was between a brown boy and a black boy and it was an unfortunate incident. Move on with yer lives because at the end of the day, lobster bisque is mmmmm mmmmm delicious!!!

I wonder if the two big guys behind them are their body guards. It would be nice if George and his family could go out for a nice dinner to celebrate also. They seem to be in hiding.


I wonder if some patriotic people could offer them security protection so they could go out. Maybe like one of these biker groups instead of collecting toys for tots could protect them. Maybe the NRA could find some volunteers.


I think the people who care about America and the right to self defense and the second amendment should be interested in their welfare. He went on the line for all of us. He didn't just cop a plea and go hide in shame in a jail cell.

What a ridiculous article - suggesting that a restaurant that is a favorite of rap-stars and baseball players is somehow too good for a defense lawyer?

Why shouldn't they celebrate? They saved their client from a judicial lynch mob. As the evidence showed Zimmerman was 100% innocent and should never have been charged.

Prior to pulling the trigger Zimmerman was being pummeled by Trayvon Marin who was on top of Zimmerman who screamed for help.

Under these cir***stances how could anyone believe that Zimmerman was not justified in defending himself? Had he not shot Martin GZ could very well be dead himself.
