Tom Mesereau was successful in proving Michael Jackson’s INNOCENCE
Tom Mesereau has his own slideshow regarding his meeting and defending Michael Jackson. His profile on the website begins – “he is best known for Acquitting the late music legend, Michael Jackson, of all fourteen charges in the most watched trial in legal history. Tom is widely recognized as one of the best trial lawyers in the country. He has been selected by his peers as one of “The Best Lawyers in America” and has been listed as one of the “One Hundred Most Influential Attorneys in California” by the Los Angeles Daily Journal, the leading legal newspaper in California.”
Even though Mr. Meserueau defended high profile clients, like Michael Jackson, he also does pro-bono work in the South for much lesser known defendants, who he feels have been unjustly incarcerated. An interview on Celebrity Justice demonstrates clearly how how he lives by his principles and how he applies them to the law –
“My father always taught me to keep an open mind, to look for injustice and always be very sensitive to people who face oppression, who face injustice, mainly poor people.”
WE honor and respect Tom Mesereau for his overall work ethic and his determination to seek justice whether it be for a iconic legend or the common man. In Michael’s case, as he said, he kept an ‘open mind’ and was sensitive to a man who faced ‘oppression’ and ‘injustice’. He demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that has been one of Michael’s most avid of Vanguards because not only did he defend him, he befriended him. Immediately following the resounding victory in the 2005 case, Mesereau did a variety of interviews in which he criticized the media for the sensationalized and inaccurate way they portrayed Michael, the case, and the trial proceedings.
These are some quotes from a Larry King Live interview:
“Celebrity injustice is sending 70 sheriffs to raid Michael Jacksons home in a search, it was putting more experts, more sheriffs, more investigators in this case, than a serial killer. MJ was treated different because he was a celebrity. “
“Prosecution tried to create the impression that other people were molested and they all came in and said they weren’t. “
“The more I got to know Michael Jackson, the more ridiculous I realized these charges were. He was a gentle, charitable kind hearted, decent person he. He was honest and down to earth, straight forward to deal with. The Michael Jackson I know doesn’t even come close to the Michael Jackson that they tried to portray. to see a simple person.. honest about his loneliness, honest about childhood.”
“Michael is a very resilient person and yes he’s been a target for many years, he’s been maligned, he’s been scandalized – but he’s also one of world’s greatest artists, one of the world’s greatest talents, and also one of the world’s greatest humanitarians “
Mr. Mesereau continues to be a staunch supporter of Michael Jackson even after his death and was interviewed on CBS. He praises the funeral services as depicting the wonders of the man himself. Please listen starting at 2:05
” There was magic in the air, everyone sitting there just soaked in the aspects of this very unique person. . . . Michael had a universal quality where he reached out to mankind to try to heal the world through art, through music, through love, through kindness.. and then there was the individual .. when he helped a child from the inner city with an icecream or he introduced them to an animal at Neverland it would put a smile on his face. . . . this was a very special and unique person I think both services brought out what kind of person he really was. ”
When you hear affirmations of Michael’s total innocence, gentleness and true nature from a well respected man like Tom Mesereau, who knew him personally, it carries so much more weight, yet the news agencies rarely incessntly repeat the opinions of anyone who has anything positive to say about Michael Jackson.
Here again, he totally dispelled the fact that Michael was a pedophile and especially that lingering doubt that Jordan Chandler was molested but the media didn’t pick up on this story. Listen to him carefully at 1:56
“… he’s the one that got a settlement in the early 90’s, my understanding is the Prosecutors tried to get him to show up, and he wouldn’t, if he had I had witnesses who were gonna come in and say he told them that it never happened and that he wouldn’t talk to his parents for what they made him say..and it turned out that he went into court and got legal emancipation – his mother came in a testified that she hadn’t talked to him in eleven years… ” Tom Mesereau
We must all endeavor to be as loyal and vocal as Mr. Mesereau and be Vanguards for Michael.

Mr. Mesereau has made his views on media coverage of Michael Jackson NO secret;
(Nancy) “Grace put Jackson on trial in the court of public opinion by presuming his guilt from her seat behind an anchor desk.”
“I think her coverage of the Jackson case was sub-moronic. She didn’t know the facts; she didn’t know the evidence. She didn’t know the witnesses. She didn’t know what was happening in the courtroom,” Mesereau said. “She tried to spin a verdict through a lot of emotional innuendo that was just buffoonery as far as I am concerned. When she was humiliated by the acquittals of Michael Jackson, she lashed out at jurors. I thought she was a disgrace. I thought she was the bottom of the barrel.”
