Mr. Bloom was educated in New York where he achieved a BA degree from State University of New York, Albany in 1973.

Mr. Bloom has been a “pro tem” Judge in workers compensation and frequently serves on legal education panels all over California. A longstanding member of the California Applicants’ Attorneys Association, Mr. Bloom believes in the association’s mission – to advance the interests of injured workers in California.
Mr. Bloom’s practice also specializes in the complex litigation and medical issues of injured workers who have suffered catastrophic injuries. For decades he has served the role of advocate for scores of individuals whose very living and existence hangs in the balance of the intervention of experienced legal counsel. Mr. Bloom’s practice often takes the advocacy of severely disabled clients beyond the claim against the workers compensation carrier and pursues significant recoveries against the Subsequent Injury Benefit Trust Fund.
Not all attorneys are alike! Quality representation in matters both simple and complex yield a significant advantage to the disabled in money and medical treatment entitlements. Mr. Bloom has exceptional training and experience. These qualities enhance his mature and aggressive legal intervention. The results are generally different from the medical and financial outcomes reached by passive litigation postures often seen in the workers’ compensation community.
