Mark O’Mara quits, gives parting advice to George Zimmerman: ‘Pay me’

Just days after announcing that he had accepted a job as a legal analyst on CNN, Mark O’Mara has stepped down as George Zimmerman’s attorney.

O’Mara made the announcement one day after Shellie Zimmerman called 911 claiming that her now-estranged husband was threatening her and her father with a gun. Police say they are still investigating the incident and that both George and Shellie could eventually face charges.  

Police also said that video of the incident was captured on Shellie Zimmerman’s iPad, which was smashed to pieces, and that they are trying to retrieve the video to get a clearer picture of what happened.

During a press conference on Monday, O’Mara was visibly annoyed at the recent events surrounding his former client. When asked if he had any parting advice for Zimmerman, he said, “Pay me.”

O'Mara got what he wanted- fame. A continued relationship with Zimmerman would only have negative consequences-

Smart man- cunning defense attny-

i love how people say he "dropped" zimmerman or whatever.  he was his attorney for his criminal case.  he isnt his personal attorney haha.  why would anyone think that the attorney that handled his murder defense would also be handling his minor issues with his wife???

 Of course he's not going to be his lawyer any more.  He made his name a household word on this case.  He now has a job with CNN.

Lawyers don't take on high profile cases expecting to get paid when the defendant doesn't have any money to speak of.  They do it as a stepping stone to bigger and better things.

The George groupies just can't let go, can they?  The guy couldn't possibly do anything wrong.  Poor him!

From what I read, Omara is still representing Zimmerman in a pending defamation suit against NBC and sanctions and costs from his second-degree murder trial, reports CBS affiliate WKMG.

Perhaps he isn't too worried about a continued relationship.

Omara isn't getting involved in the domestic side.

"Mark O' Mara, lawyer for George Zimmerman, won't represent him in domestic altercation or his divorce"

How do you define a GZ groupie? Someone who waits for facts on a case/investigation?
I could personally care less about GZ personally. But I'm tired of the media judging people before the police have even done their job. And I'm tired and ignorant people sheepishly following the media. I get it that the president of the US has fed the culture of guilty before proven innocent. I just expected more to be better than that.
Looks like some on CM are into being pre-judging idiots.
