AKA Thomas Arthur Mesereau, Jr.
Birthplace: West Point, NY
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Defended Michael Jackson
California attorney with long, shocking white hair. A partner with Collins, Mesereau, Reddock & Yu, LLP, out of Century City, California (a suburb of Los Angeles). Mesereau has an excellent track record with regards to acquittals. Annually he defends death penalty cases in Alabama pro bono, and does other work for those too poor to afford legal services. Most remarkable in select celebrity cases he has achieved the seemingly impossible. Mesereau was former counsel to Mike Tyson; he successfully defended Robert Blake's murder charges; most prominently, he defended Michael Jackson's against child abduction and molestation charges brought by Santa Barbara County District Attorney Tom Sneddon. In this last trial much of the world expected a certain guilty verdict; one of the few false moves Mesereau made was telling the jury Jackson would testify, but not delivering on this.
