Kathy Bloom, the managing partner at Bloom Peters, LLC, focuses her practice in the areas of family law, transactional law and mediation. While she is experienced in resolving high conflict divorce and custody issues, including alienation, she focuses on helping clients resolve their issues amicably. 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 is a collaboratively trained attorney who uses alternative methods of dispute resolution to keep parties out of court and help them resolve their issues in a constructive and productive manner. Similarly, she is trained in advanced methods of mediation and acts as a neutral mediator to help parties resolve their legal issues amicably. Ms. Bloom is a former officer of the Collaborative Law Professionals of Southeastern Pennsylvania. She is also a founding member of Lawyers With Heart, a group of collaborative attorney-mediators who believe clients should be empowered to make their own decisions instead of a court.
Ms. Bloom is also a trained Parenting Coordinator, where she combines all of her legal skills and mediation skills with her psychology training. Parenting coordination is used in highly contentious custody cases after a final custody order has been entered by the court. As a Parenting Coordinator, she works 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.
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.
