DISMISSED!
I never thought that I would need a lawyer but when I did, I researched and decided to go with Atty. Bloom. The initial phone call and office visit made me feel not alone. He was sympathetic to my dilemma. He’s very knowledgeable and attentive to my concerns. I am not much of a writer but I feel that people need to know what a great lawyer Atty Bloom is. My case got DISMISSED!

Promising Lawyer!
Steve is AMAZING! From the start he was supportive, reassuring, and sounded the most promising of multiple lawyers I've discussed my situation with. He was able to get my six-month DUI class reduced to a three-month class with absolutely no community service. He was also able to get my fine reduced as well! Mr. Bloom has great connections in terms of getting your SR-22 at a reasonable price so you could definitely ask him for some guidance. He was reliable, showed up to my two court dates, and handled everything perfectly for me. I'm grateful to have had Mr. Bloom on my team and would not know what I would have done without him! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Absolutely The Best
We had no idea how or where to find a reputable attorney. After some research we called Steven Bloom and knew immediately there wasn’t going to be anyone better or more capable than him. Our in person consultation put us at ease as he explained very simply the process ahead. He was extremely impressive in the courtroom with his knowledge and expertise. Steven Bloom resolved the case and now we are out from underneath a dark cloud. I cannot even think of anything he could have done better. He was just great.

Highly Recommend!
I highly recommend Mr. Bloom and think he is a great attorney. I am so lucky that I had him as my lawyer. He helped me get the best possible outcome on my case. Not only did he provide great results, but he was professional and really cares about his clients. He was very knowledgeable and responsive whenever I had any questions. And he took away a lot of my stress and worry during a difficult process. If any of my family or friends needed an attorney, I would 100% refer them to Mr. Bloom.

Your Search Ends Here
I managed to get myself in a bit of hot water with the OC justice system concerning a DUI. After calling and meeting with a myriad of attorneys Steve offered me the best rate AND the best results. Suffice to say it, I was apprehensive that he would be able to not only reduce the standard sentence but save me a few dollars but that's exactly what happened! Furthermore, nearly 2 years later a warrant for my arrest was issued in my name due to a minor billing error. Worried of violating my parole and being sent to jail (as some attorneys I consulted with said may happen) I hired Steve who told me it would be completely settled the following day. Just as before, like magic, the issue was resolved and the case was closed. If you're anything like myself and spent countless hours researching you've stumbled upon the gold mine. I would highly recommend Steven Bloom who has proven to be upfront, never condescending, and does his best to stick to his word. Plus comparatively as I've mentioned his rates aren't bad either! Don't take this joke of a legal system lightly, hire a good attorney like Steve whom I now owe my freedom and peace of mind to.

Look No Further!!!!
I called Steven Bloom to represent my daughter one day before her arraignment. Not only did he take the case, he used his knowledge of domestic violence and self-defense and miraculously was able to get the case thrown out!!!! This situation could have been a nightmare for the victim (who was arrested after calling the police in self-defense) however, Mr. Bloom listened intently, asked the right questions and knew what he needed to do moving forward. If you need an attorney to represent you, and your searching for an honest lawyer who can get the job done, then LOOK NO FURTHER! Mr. Bloom is smart, quick-on-his-feet and has influence in Orange County! My family and I would hire him again, no questions asked!

Best Criminal Defense Lawyer In OC
I went to "hang out" with a co-worker of mine late one night in Orange County and had a little too much to drink. He ended up leaving me in a gas station to fend for myself and I ended up in police custody. I was officially charged with TWO offenses: being Drunk in Public and Assault on an Officer. Long story short... knowing things would not go well for me if I accepted a court appointed lawyer or even defended myself, my family decided to search the web in hopes of finding a lawyer on the web; that's where we found Steven Kelly Bloom. I explained my situation to him and he took the case under his wings. Steven was able to get the Assault on an Officer charge thrown out, but there was no way around the drunk in public. As the time progressed, I was informed of a "court-ordered diversion program" that is apparently designed for "first time offenders" who have been arrested and charged with personal use drug offenses. I had to plead guilty to the charge of being drunk in public, offer a sample of my DNA to the court and attend the program; in return, successful completion of said criteria would result in my case being DISMISSED all together. I took responsibility for my actions and attended the course -- making sure not to be "late" coming back from my breaks/meal period; (they DID send people home for coming back late and had no qualms showing people the door). I went back to court with the Certificate of Completion in hand and Steven Bloom to fight by my side and the case was DISMISSED. I HIGHLY recommend this lawyer to help you with you legal troubles. He's a good man who treats his clients with the utmost respect and professionalism. He clearly knows what he's doing.

Best Lawyer I have ever had.
I went to the Fullerton Courthouse to look for a lawyer that could represent me in a case I had coming up there. I'm not from the area and realized that a lawyer from my area would not be connected at all in this courthouse. I went there twice observing cases and looking for a lawyer that seemed to have the following traits: confidence without arrogance, good energy and most of all the appearance to have respect amongst the courthouse officials. The DA and Judge being the most important. Steven was by far the attorney that seemed to have what I was looking for. It was time to get a business card and find out if he was within my budget. Steven passed this test and what was most important to me was the flat rate to get the job done. I'm not one for paying for phone calls and all the rest of the things we as consumers have no way of regulating. My assumptions were correct and Steven won a very difficult case. In my opinion he won it on his reputation, personality and from going the extra mile behind the scenes to capture the respect of the court. I went through four lawyers during my divorce and believe me I know the difference between a good lawyer and a bad one! I am writing this review because of my past experiences with bad lawyers and want to help spread the word. If you have any questions please feel free to email me at [information redacted]

Best OC Lawyer!!!
Mr. Bloom was recommended through a friend and known as one of the best attorneys in Orange County. He treated me like family the moment I walked in his office. Any questions I had he took the time to explain thoroughly in detail. He was always responsive and reachable through phone or email. He fought for my case and received results that would have been unmatchable with any other lawyer. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Bloom to anyone as he provided amazing representation and results!

Amazing Lawyer!
I found Steve here on this site. It was over a year ago, but I forgot to write a review. So better late than never! I sent him a message & it was a Sunday. He called me back immediately! We talked on the phone & set up a time to meet. He handled everything perfect. I was very satisfied with his work. If you have any found in your mind about who to choose to represent you, pick this guy! He knows all the right people. You'll know he's the person to take your case after you meet him! I can't say enough good things about this man! Good luck.

Best criminal defense attorney who understands vietnamese cultures
Steven Bloom has an excellent working relationship with the DAs. That is one important positive ingredient in Mr. Bloom's success in defending and winning for his clients. I was fortunate to have found him online, and was even more fortunate to have Mr. Bloom did his magic with the laws to persuade the DAs not to press charge against me. I am vietnamese, and Mr. Bloom understands vietnamese cultures which enabled Mr. Bloom to defend me very successfully. Mr. Bloom is the best criminal defense attorney whom I am so fortunate to find online, and to have him represent me. I am very grateful to his excellent work.

Incredibly Helpful
I researched and spoke to several attorneys before hiring Steve. I was on a time crunch and unable to meet him in person last minute. I decided to hire him because when we spoke on the phone, he was informative and flexible and understanding. There's a lot of guilt, confusion, and financial stress associated with any DUI case. All anyone can do is take responsibility for it and move forward. There is little information available out there for next steps. All I knew I had to do was schedule a DMV Admin hearing within 10 days, after that I was lost and immensely curious about what to do next. Having the right attorney will make this process as efficient and smooth as possible. Steve attended my arraignment in my place and schedule court dates accordingly so that it lines up with the driver's license restriction. The court and DMV operate as two different entities--if you do not align your court date efficiently, your license could be suspended for much longer than necessary. A DUI affects you long after you have your court date, complete the program, and get your license back. I learned how different informal probation terms are for each individual after hearing stories from other people in the DUI program. It all depends on your case and the attorney negotiating on your behalf. I've realized how valuable this is and Steve simply made this the most positive outcome possible. All the fees you have to pay are already extensive (court fee, DMV, SR22, etc.), but I highly recommend investing in an attorney like Steve to ensure your case is handled as best as possible. It is worth it.

OUTSTANDING ATTORNEY!
I would definitely recommend Mr. Steven K. Bloom to anyone looking for a highly skilled, professional and results oriented attorney. I retained Mr. Bloom to help me throughout one of the most difficult times of my life... and the outcome was more than favorable. Steven was honest, up-front, thorough and extremely professional throughout the entire process. He is responsive, considerate and extremely humble - if I should ever find myself in need of an attorney again, Steven would be the only call I make! Mr. Bloom definitely deserves more than ten stars!

The Very Best
His honesty and beyond fair price was the first reason I hired Steven K Bloom. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. I quickly realized that he is well known and respected in the Orange County Court System. He handled my case very professionally, and he kept me feeling confident through my entire case. At the end of my case all charges against me were dropped. I feel confident in saying, if I had hired some other attorney, the results would not have been the same. He went above and beyond the call of duty for me. If you want the best defense that you can possibly have, I highly recommend Steven K Bloom. Thank you again Steve, I am very grateful for your services

DUI defense... Outstanding Attorney
Totaling my car while driving with more than double the legal BAC limit left me in a nerve wracking predicament. Luckily I called Steve to help me with my case. Throughout the entire process starting with the first call and ending with a more than favorable court outcome Steve was outstanding. His knowledge, professionalism, great reputation within the legal system and excellent results is what makes me believe he is one of the best attorneys out there. I was also left with the impression that Steve takes a personal interest and pride in providing his clients the best defense.

"When I first started practicing law, I was lucky enough to land a job at the same defense firm as Steve. I shadowed him in court to learn the ropes and was immediately impressed by his knowledge of the law. Even more impressive, however, was how he seemed to be everyone’s best friend. From other lawyers to the judge, to court personnel, everyone was always happy to see Steve. This ability to connect with people is extremely rare; particularly in the legal profession. I have witnessed Steve work miracles for his clients time and again, and have had the good fortune of working with him on a number of cases. Whenever I need advice or a second opinion on a case, my first call is always to Steve.
