(Nevada City, CA) Celebrity attorney Mark Geragos, who represented Michael Jackson, Chris Brown, Wynona Ryder and other high-profile national figures and who has been part of numerous landmark legal cases, has agreed to represent Nevada County holistic physician Harvey Bigelsen in a criminal case.

“We took the case because we felt strongly that Bigelsen is being persecuted for not hewing to the medical establishment,” Geragos said in an email.
The hiring of Mark Geragos underscores the importance of challenging all counts because of the national implications for all health practitioners and on all those who, like Dr. Harvey Bigelsen, practice alternative medicine.
Dr. Harvey Bigelsen’s clinic was raided in March, spearheaded by the Medical Board under the State of California Department of Consumer Affairs. Two microscopes were seized as evidence and the office shut down. See this video
The issues in this case are groundbreaking for the health choices and freedom of all Americans. Dr. Bigelsen’s nearly 50 years as a medical doctor underscores the importance of free choice for clients to select those they wish to treat their
illnesses and to actually select the best options available that lead to the best healing outcomes.
“He is innocent; he hasn’t done anything wrong,” said. Setora Qassim of the L.A. based law firm Geragos & Geragos
Numerous health practitioners and many clients have joined the diverse chorus to stand by Dr. “B”. It was a disgruntled listener who did not agree with what he heard on the radio when Dr. Bigelsen was speaking who took issue and filed a report with the State. No clients were involved. “I have seen my clients be spit out of the system and told to go home and die,” cites Dr. Harvey, and “they have come to me and have lived many healthy and productive years.” See the gofundme campaign http://www.gofundme.com/anqfy4 and Facebook I Stand Behind ‘Dr. B’
