Tom Mesereau responds to Michael Jackson's fans petition
To Supporters of Michael Jackson and the Jackson family:
Thank you for your generous comments and interest.
Like many of you, I believe Mr. Joseph Jackson could have chosen better and more appropriate legal counsel. However, this is his choice to make.
As you know, Attorney Susan Yu and I are partners in the firm of Mesereau & Yu, LLP. We specialize in criminal defense and business litigation. We do not specialize in probate law or will contests.
Although we are unwilling to participate in legal proceedings where we feel we lack the required expertise, we are supporters of Mrs. Katherine Jackson. I am in touch with certain members of the family and am willing to support them where I feel it is appropriate.
Thank you for your kind petition. Michael was a sensitive and loving person whom the world misses.
