Chester County Delaware County Montgomery County Philadelphia County Pennsylvania Bucks County Legal (ADR) Alternative Dispute Resolution ADR - Mediator ADR - Parent Coordinator Lawyer- Divorce and Family Law


Kathy J. Bloom, an attorney/mediator, is an Amicable Ambassador for the Greater Philadelphia area and a founding member for ADN.  She is the managing partner at Bloom Peters, LLC, where she focuses her practice on family law. 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.

Kathy 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.

Ms. Bloom is also a family law arbitrator trained by the American Academy of Matrimonial Attorneys.  Arbitration is the last step in an Amicable divorce in order to keep the parties out of court.  Arbitration can also be used if the parties are stuck on an issue.  It is like having a judge on call instead of waiting for weeks and sometimes months to have your issues addressed in the court system.

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.
