George Zimmerman Lawyer

I Hope His Paintings Make MILLION$

George Zimmerman could have a gold mine on his hands -- selling artwork to climb out of massive debt -- and no one's happier than the lawyer who defended him at his murder trial -- who's still waiting to be paid ... TMZ has learned.

Zimmerman is on the hook to attorney Mark O'Mara for a reported $1 million.  Zimmerman could make a serious dent in that debt if he sells his first original painting on eBay ...  because the highest bid is now well over $100K.

O'Mara wouldn't comment on Zimmerman's finances.  But he did tell us, "If selling paintings helps him rebuild his life, I'm not going to stand in the way of that."

But we're guessing if there's a big fat check in O'Mara's mailbox ... he'll gladly cash it.

Good for him. He could get that debt paid in no time. I say go for it. He is such a patriot and lover of God. It is really inspiring the way he goes on in courage. He never gives in or makes excuses, he continues on in hiw core values.

Please pay the lawyers asap. We don't want lawyers to be discouraged from doing their best cause they fear that are not going to get paid perhaps. These guys earned their pay from what I saw. There was a lynch mob out for George and he beat it thanks in huge part to the legal team.

The proceeds from the unoriginal painting should go to the Martin family, but George Zimmerman is all about George Zimmerman. There was no Justice for Trayvon.

I think the process should be given to Trayvon Martin's parents. George Zimmerman is all about George Zimmerman. Justice for Trayvon???

I think the proceeds from the painting deserved to be given to Trayvon Martin's family not Zimmerman.

Out of the hundreds of questions the auction shows GZ has received, one of the only dozen or so asks if O'Mara will receive a dime of the proceeds. GZ's answer: "No." He picked that question to publicly answer for a reason, most likely to give a big FU to O'Mara dropping him and thus embarrassing him. Because in the world of a narcissist like GZ, everything is somebody else's fault. His overestimation of himself really shines in the comment where he compliments himself in third person and talks about his "God given liberty".

The State of Florida will cover Zimmerman's legal expenses, they are required to by law because he was found not guilty in a self defense case.
