The Mesereau Free Legal Clinic is named after Attorney Thomas A. Mesereau, Jr., who is one of the most famous criminal defense attorneys in the world.  He has successfully defended such personalities as actor Robert Blake, heavy weight boxer Mike Tyson, and radio personality Larry Carroll, just to name a few.


  Mr. Mesereau is internationally known for having obtained an acquittal of music legend Michael Jackson on all counts in a highly publicized child-molestation trial in Santa Maria, California.  In addition, Attorney Mesereau volunteers his time throughout Los Angeles County at various legal clinics and is a motivational speaker for volunteers, law students, and community organizations.  Yet, he still finds time each year  to defend a death penalty case in Alabama, pro bono.

It is the Mission of the Mesereau Free Legal Clinic that each client is treated with the utmost respect and courtesy regardless of income, circumstances, or station in life. To assist in educating the community regarding issues that affect their lives, the Mesereau Free Legal Clinic regularly provides educational seminars where respected members of the legal community as well as other disciplines, discuss hot topics of interest.
