Kathy Bloom, the managing partner at Bloom Peters, LLC, focuses her practice on the issues surrounding family law. She is experienced in resolving high conflict divorce and custody issues, including alienation, but focuses on resolving matters using various types of alternative dispute resolution methods to keep her clients out of court. It is her belief that clients deserve respect, courtesy, and cooperation while dealing with life altering issues, such as divorce, custody, and support, purchasing or selling a home, or executing a will or power of attorney. While acting as a compassionate advocate, Ms. Bloom combines the unique ability to provide simple explanations of complex issues, and strives to make the process as painless as possible. She understands the need to fight when it is necessary, negotiate when it is appropriate, and compromise when it is required.

 

Attorney Bloom uses alternative dispute resolution methods to keep parties out of court and help them resolve their issues in a constructive and productive manner. She is a trained Arbitrator, Mediator, Parenting Coordinator, a Certified Amicable Divorce Professional and is also trained in the Collaborative Process.  She is also a founding member of Lawyers With Heart, a group of attorney-mediators who believe clients should be empowered to make their own decisions instead of a court.

As an Arbitrator Ms. Bloom acts as a neutral decision maker after hearing all of the evidence in the case and renders a decision without the need to go to court.  As a Mediator, she helps parties have a productive conversation to allow them to determine their own outcomes. As a Parenting Coordinator, used in highly contentious custody cases after a final custody order has been entered by the court, she combines all of her legal skills with her Psychology training to work with both parents to hear each of their sides of the parenting issue at hand and then makes a determination to resolve the issue, and submits it to the court for final approval.  All of the above methods of dispute resolution give the clients a voice that they do not have when a case goes to court.

When acting as an attorney, Kathy encourages her clients to use processes like the Amicable Divorce Process and the Collaborative process to empower clients and give them a meaningful voice in determining the outcome of their case.

Attorney Bloom is also known as Professor Bloom when she is teaching law at Widener University Delaware Law School.

 

Prior to founding Bloom Peters, LLC, Ms. Bloom was an attorney at one of the nation's top law firms focusing on class action securities litigation for institutional investors. She served as a law clerk for the Honorable Clyde W. Waite in the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas, and was a summer intern for the Women's Law Project in Philadelphia.
