Mr. Mesereau was retained as lead trial counsel by a prominent plastic surgeon in Los Angeles. The California Attorney General charged this surgeon with numerous violations including claims that he exposed himself to patients. During the trial, Mr. Mesereau cross-examined every female accuser, as well as other witnesses. The client was acquitted of all sexual violations. The physician/client was convicted of less serious violations and placed on probation.
Significance: If this prominent plastic surgeon had been convicted of any sexual misconduct count, he may have lost his medical license permanently. Mr. Mesereau’s cross-examination of each and every female accuser won the case.
