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.

Heck yes!!! They worked very hard, long hours and did a great job. The fact that they're getting death threats is awful and just makes the protestors look like thugs. Learn the law, accept it and move on. I can't wait to see all of the evidence that the jury got to see. It will speak for itself.

So sad that they celebrated the victory of letting loose a killer. George Zimmerman was not a innocent man. I hope karma gets them for defending this liar.

They can eat that's their right and they did their job of course. Lawyers defend guilty people all the time. However GZ was guilty and it's such a shame and injustice the prosecutors didn't do a better job making this clearer. He should have never persued that kid. Also the stand your ground law as a defense is garbage in this case.m How can you follow someone, provoke them and then claim self defense. That's just crazy! Had the roles been reversed they would have fried Trayvon most certainly. Fair is fair And wrong is wrong. We need to do better America much better!

Don't hold it against the defense, you know you would want them if you got into trouble. Blame the prosecutors and that fat cow that brought the charges while bypassing a grand jury

What's the big deal? Just because the lawyers already had money doesn't mean they should be expected to pay out of pocket for every defendant they represent.

The NAACP and the Reverends Sharpton and Jackson have been exploiting and "dancing on the grave" of TM for the past year. They have used his death to promote their POLITICAL and Racial agendas.

Why did NBC edit the 911 call to make it sound as if GZ was racist when all he was doing was answering the operators question, "Is he white, black or Hispanic?" George didn't even know at first!

Why was GZ immediately labeled White when he is obviously Hispanic?

Why were 12yr old TM pictures used instead of the ones of him at his actual age 17?

Why did the Martin family receive money from the victims compensation fund before GZ was even charged? Why wasn't the million dollar settlement they also received from the HOA widely reported?

Why did Angela Corey get involved when the local DA and police found GZ acted in self defense?

Why would an alleged wannabe cop (GZ) testify against the actions of Sanford cops the previous year?

Why was GZ made into some sort of MMA expert when he was taking a variety of FITNESS classes to lose weight with MMA being a very, very, very small part of them?

Why did President get involved in THIS case?

Why did the Dept of Justice bus protestors down to the rallies last year?

Why were TMs texts, pictures and tweets regarding fighting, buying a gun, making lean (skittles, fruit drink concoction) hidden from the Defense?

Why was the whistleblower fired who revealed what was on TM's phone?

Why is the Dept of Justice investigating a racial edge when the FBI already thoroughly investigated this last summer, interviewed 40 witnesses and found nothing to suggest it had anything to do with race?

ETC. ETC. ETC
