[Updated at 4:52 p.m. ET] Attorney Hal Uhrig said he and attorney Craig Sonner still stand by what they've said previously in defense of Zimmerman. Sonner said he still believes Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense.

[Updated at 4:49 p.m. ET] The attorneys for George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who authorities say fatally shot an unarmed teenager in Florida, say they're no longer representing him, because they have lost contact with him.

Attorneys Craig Sonner and Hal Uhrig say they last had contact with Zimmerman on Sunday. Since then, Zimmerman hasn't returned their phone calls or text messages, they told reporters Tuesday afternoon.

"He has gone on his own. I don't know what he's doing or who he's talking to," Sonner said. "... “I cannot represent client who doesn’t stay in contact with me.”

I really like Hal Uhrig. I’m listening to him and he has a set :)

Being that Zimmerman is a Democrat, his weltanschauung is probably upside down considering all the people he respected and was a part of are now actively destroying him. He is probably shuttered in someones basement wondering what happened to his old life. That is why he is shutting out the lawyers. He might not talk to anyone anymore. This guy probably really needs psychological help now after this.

You are not the only one wondering if Zimmerman had a meltdown, or perhaps something happened with his lawyers that has made him not trust them, or perhaps his lawyers were made an 'offer they could not refuse'. Imagine if your entire worldview were turned upside down and inside out!

They did say they were concerned about him being suicidal.

The last guy I knew who the media went after with no regard for the facts committed suicide. Such a waste. But after all the bs, his life was ruined.

I can think of about a dozen reasons he might switch attorneys.

But those two sure looked like they were hitting on all eight cylinders to me.

He could come here to Canada. He wouldn’t be extradited for any offense that involves the death penalty.

As it is not going before the Grand Jury, the death penalty possibility is out the picture. First plane back to Florida.
