He may very well have been a fine attorney but I take issue with his handling of this case. Involving the media is the worst thing he could sanction. I would have withdrawn as attorney of record the minute the media frenzy started. If his client doesn't follow his directive, he should find another attorney but O'Mara has been equally guilty of using the media to try this case. Many think he has an agenda which has been debated here already. Mistrial being the key word. Just my opinion.
My take is that I don't know how he could have avoided addressing the media. Zimmerman's previous atty, imo, did a lot of damage. I understand that O'Mara had been a legal analyst for CNN, I think it was, during one high profile case so some believe that he is probably best suited to handle the media. I don't see how he could avoid it and especially at the point when he entered into it. I read that some believe the is too far to the left and that it may work against Zimmerman's best interests. He may have an agenda, it's hard to say. It wouldn't surprise me in that anymore, it seems that almost everyone has an agenda when it comes to high profile cases.

Why don't you kindly stop assuming that I am judging them. Sorry but even if I wanted to, the system doesn't allow a person to judge their own posts.

Again, if you lay your hands on a person first, consider that assault.

He puts me in mind of that Van Der Sloot guy who I will always believe killed Natalie Holloway in Aruba during May 2005. He also had a father who was a high-ranking government official that got him out of horrible situations, of which this was the worst. His father has since died, and he went on to kill a Peruvian woman. This time, he got convicted and got a long jail sentence.
Yea I member that case. Just never knew what the outcome was. Least he got his 1 way or another.
In the same way his father couldn't be around forever to clean up his screw-ups, George Zimmerman's father won't always be around either. This looks like something that his father won't be able to help him much with, even while being alive.
True & at this rate, I see mad shit changing if he get convicted.

His life will never be the same, regardless of this trial's outcome. I hope for one thing that the SYG law will be amended to prevent anyone from being able to instigate a situation and then claim to have been standing their ground. It's significant that the law's authors have said Zimmerman can't use it anyway, since he was the perpetrator. I also hope that if it's not law already, there will be one put in place where a dispatcher giving sound advice and instructions intended to promote safety cannot be ignored without serious penalty--whether (s)he is an officer or civilian. Most of all, I hope this will give pause to anyone else who romanticizes vigilantism or thinks it's a good idea to try at being a cop when one is not trained for it. It's been eye-opening to see the responses of so many Americans, and to see how people look at it so differently.

I hope so too. And the fact he cant use the law, puts him in more trouble than he done got hisself into already.

All we can do is hope as we already know them laws put in place only benefit whitefolk.
Most of all, I hope this will give pause to anyone else who romanticizes vigilantism or thinks it's a good idea to try at being a cop when one is not trained for it.
Maybe some folk'll think twice before they do anything that'll put em in the same position Piggy in now.

I wasn't aware Zimmerman had another attorney before O'Mara as I haven't been following all of the goings on. What I have seen and read is disturbing enough. Giving his client the best possible representation should be O'Mara's only agenda but this case has been so badly mishandled, in my opinion, that finding a fair and impartial jury is going to take a small miracle. We'll just have to see how things proceed now.

BUZZ OFF, Tiny. IF you could actually comprehend what you read, I said it varied by case. What part of that are you missing? Some liberal, some conservative. You have SIDING on the brain to the point it has polluted what little of it you seem to have left. It's obvious you need GROUP approval to have any opinion. Sad and pathetic that you have to follow the herd. Grow a backbone, K? Your best rebuttals are peppered with insults and nonsense and almost NO substance. Now you KNOW why I do not consider you to be my people. You are a pathetic coward. GO AWAY, K?
Why dont you show some Native solidarity for once and quit with all the liberal nonsense... i should have your loyalty and you know it .

Tone down some of the rhetoric for awhile and be a little more neutral like myself and you wouldnt get as much backlash.

He has been horrible as an attorney. Those who claim his client is being railroaded need to take note of how O'Mara has involved the media in publicly trying the case, and how he failed to rein in his client from making self-incriminating statements before the same media. It's ridiculous to on one hand court the media and bask in the media spotlight, and then on the other to cry about being railroaded or having one's client being railroaded. I like the way the prosecution is keeping mum, because O'Mara has been doing a lot of their work for them.
I believe it was the last pre-trial hearing in May when O'Mara had to publicly apologise for misrepresenting a 'fight video' on Trayvon's cellphone and at that same hearing things got rather ugly between the prosecution and the defense counsel, each accusing the other of withholding evidence during the discovery phase.(and while all this is going on, we, the tax payers are paying a price for all of this nonsense) Heads should roll, imho.

He did. Two, actually, Hal Uhrig and Craig Sonner. Sonner was on Anderson Cooper, Lawrence O'Donnell, and during the interview Sonner walked out, the whole nine yards. And of course Nancy Grace had a go at it. It was quite a show in that they were all coming out of the woodwork. At one point Zimmerman even called Hannity directly and his attys lost track of him.

When Sonner and Uhrig withdrew, it didn't reflect very well on Zimmerman. That's when O'Mara stepped in.

I found this interview just after O'Mara stepped in and they weighed in on it...

Very true about finding an impartial jury. It'll be interesting, that's for sure. I suspect that we're in for quite a show.

Here's the interview w/O'Donnell where Sonner flees the interview. I think it was just after the lights went out on him. Perhaps, it wasn't the best idea on second thought. lol There may be one of higher quality but it should give you a pretty good idea of what a circus it was turning into just prior to O'Mara entering the picture.

I believe Zimmerman's atty also was on CNN, Good morning, America and more I believe.
