Seeking legal representation
From my experience Bloom Legal is very professional & attentive to your legal needs. They are concerned for their clients' representation. Attorney assigned to my case was always accessible, informed & reliable. I would definitely recommend this firm for anyones' legal representation.

Quick, Kind, and Respectful
I live far out-of-state and had an old (but minor) traffic violation ticket that needed to be cleared from my license *in-person*. Obviously, this was not going to be possible for me to travel to NOLA, so I contacted Seth about appearing for me in court to resolve this matter. In my case, this whole experience was effortless and the matter was resolved without any issue. I felt completely at ease from the start that everything would be taken care of, and I got a message immediately after the court date notifying me that all of the charges were dismissed! I could not be happier with their professionalism, care and representation! Thank you, Bloom!!

Bloom Legal
Bloom Legal handles their business in a professional and informative way. Throughout the entirety of my case they kept me up to date with the proceedings and answered all of my questions making sure I understood what I was being told. All in all, Bloom Legal exceeded my expectations and I will definitely refer anyone in need of legal representation or consultation to them.

TRAFFIC CITATION IN 18 WHEELER
I could have just paid but I was innocent of "following too close" that is why I hired Bloom Legal. Took longer than I anticipated, but the dismissal was worth it!! No regrets calling Bloom Legal. Thank you

Worked a Miracle for me
Seth and David at Bloom Legal worked an absolute miracle on my case. I was facing four serious drug charges for something I didn't do. Seth and his team treated my case with the utmost professionalism. I ended up hiring Seth after a previous lawyer gave me the worst recommendations and almost totally botched my case. I owe it Bloom Legal for turning everything around for me and getting every single charge dismissed.

Propetry Damage
I just thought of Mr. Bloom the other day when I saw one of his facebook posts. Back when my home was flooded and I need a strong lawyer he did a great job getting me my money and he was pretty young back then. Good job.

Driver
I was driving a group from IN to NO and I started from STL MO. Coming into NO I was following the speed of traffic when a DOT officer got me in a speed trap dropping from 70 to 60. I have at that time a Class B CDL now a Class A. I am very happy about the way they handle my case with very little work on my part which is important to me. it was a good outcome and thank you once again for your help.

Strong work for a tough situation
I was injured in a car accident and Mr. Bloom worked with me and my case for a number of years until we got an excellent settlement in my opinion. I have since recommended him to other friends and family that needed services. All have been happy but one but you know how family can be and this was a difficult cousin who never is pleased.

Thank you for everything
Seth Bloom and his team are kind, professional, and so so helpful. I had no idea where to start after my accident, but then Bloom Legal was recommended by a friend and I am so glad. They walked me through everything and kept me informed of everything. I felt very comfortable with them handling my case and would absolutely work with them again and recommend them to others.

I would highly recommend Seth's office, specifically David Gremillion
Seth Bloom was able to handle a very complex case of mine that was botched early on, and appointed his associate, David Gremillion, to my case. David was kind, caring and persistent in getting the case dismissed. It took much longer than I expected, but it pays off having a respected defense attorney on your side when snared in New Orleans' crooked (even worse during tourist periods) criminal justice system.

Great Lawyer, Great Guy
From the moment I walked into the office, Seth and his staff were incredibly welcoming and understanding. Seth has a passion for law that is palpable, and takes clear pride in the cases he takes on. He answered my questions with evident knowledge and expertise, and outlined a detailed plan for action. He encouraged me to call him in the future with any other questions I might have. He made me feel secure and capable, despite the circumstances of my situation. He took the initiative to reach out to me after our initial meeting, which I really appreciated. I really felt like he cared about me and my situation, and wanted the best for me, beyond just money or business. Seth genuinely cares about the city of New Orleans and its communities. Beyond law, he's served multiple terms on the school board, eventually residing as president, and has run for political office. To me, it means a lot to see a prominent and successful individual like Seth giving back to the community, someone who clearly cares about our city and the people here. That's the kind of person I want representing me should I find myself in a bad spot. I would highly recommend Seth to anyone and everyone.

Great Service
I needed a lawyer quickly while visiting New Orleans and Bloom Legal came to my rescue. These guys were fair, firm and got the job done. The staff answered all of my questions and was very responsive to my needs. They were also digital and seemed to work in the 21st century unlike some of the other firms I called. I would highly recommend.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2012.

Suspension Deferred With Probation issued in LA, 2012
updated on 11/23/2015

Suspension deferred means the attorney has been suspended, but that the suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with certain requirements.

Seth's comment: “This was an unfortunate incident related to one of the first cases I ever handled as an attorney in 2004. I appreciate the outcome of the process and look forward to the future. My license was never suspended and I am not on probation nor have had any incidents before or after this situation.”
