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.

Diamond Goddess!    

The verdict was correct.
Trayvon was a delinquent with no respect for authority who escalated the situation.
America is now full of losers, and people who lionize them, which all the productive people have to pay for.
Ugh!!!

The hoopla is laughable by a bunch of folks who want justice, only their justice to prevail. In a yr., nobody including black people will even bother to remember, entranced by the latest perceived outrage. You don't remember, we don't remember, because the dollar value of it has deminished beyond it's sell date, but most are too stupid to even realize the pawnship they have enherited. Get over it, wait, a fresh one will emerge. Maybe a black will kill a white and then we can start all over again. Meanwhile, unemployment is no where on the table, Benghazi is forgotten, Obamacare is trainwrecking, the world at large is seeing what we don't, that Obama you know, travons wannabe dad, is a farce, and the tail continues to wag the dog...

And this is why you will see 300 feet of skid marks infront of a dog on the road, and none in front of a lawyer

Mark O'Mara is a bit of a DIVA and has a problem with Black Security Guards: http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/confidential/lawyer-zim-win-leaves-ego-large-article-1.1400562

Barbara Walters on “The View” Monday when she confirmed that extra security had been called in at ABC just for him.
Due to the backlash after his client’s not-guilty verdict Saturday night, Babs knew Zimmerman’s legal team needed the extra muscle.
But that was not the case over at CNN hours later, when O’Mara was taping “Anderson Cooper 360....” O’Mara was spotted in the lobby of the Time Warner building at 58th St. and Columbus Circle all alone, looking like the cat that ate the canary.
“The security guards and guest check-in at CNN is largely an African-American staff,” says our spy. “You could cut the tension yesterday [Monday] with a knife. No one wanted to look him in the eye, and he was so rude he didn’t even get off his cell phone when he was shocked to be asked for ID.”
O’Mara was accompanied by a woman, who checked in first. Then O’Mara, who refused to get off his phone, was stopped at the security barricade because guards needed to see his building-issued guest pass. “He ignored the security guard and waited 15 minutes before entering the elevator and being whisked upstairs,” said our spy.
Our source adds that despite all the negative attention, O’Mara didn’t seem to mind.
“He was standing in the lobby, laughing on his phone, while he waited,” says our eyewitness. “He had positioned himself behind the glass entrance doors where everyone could see him.”

If some of the race baiters(Obama, Sharpton, Jackson, etc.) would put just a little of that energy into helping black youth avoid the thug lifestyle, maybe black youth would see that there is a better future.

I am outraged, disgusted and completely disagree with the verdict, however, these wealthy lawyers have been eating at expensive restaurants and enjoying their wealth waaaaay before this case. Either way, I can't stand them.

Why don't we see the rappers who constantly praise the gangsta lifestyle in their music, start rapping words of encouragement, pro education, anti-violence, and personal responsibility in their music?
