Introduction: I have been a divorce and family law lawyer since the beginning of 1980 in the States of New York and New Jersey. I have handled “simple” uncontested divorces and complex trials and appeals in both States; and some of my cases have established new precedent law in each State. In addition to divorces, I also represent clients in child custody and visitation cases, spousal and child support matters, property distribution proceedings, enforcement and modification cases, as well as annulments, paternity cases and adoptions. I also handle child abuse and neglect proceedings as well as most other types of family law matters. I prefer the regular and meaningful client contact. My first job out of law school found me doing all types of civil and criminal law; and I was not particularly happy or interested in those matters. Within 6 months, I went to work for a firm specializing in divorce where I remained until 1983 when I opened my own office in NY followed the next year with a second office in NJ. My practice since has remained exclusively matrimonial and family law related. Over the years, some of my cases have established ew legal precedents in both States. I have also had my share of celebrity divorces which make for good stories. Additionally, in 2009-2011 I experienced contested divorce from a client,s perspective which has caused me to be even more sensitive to the personal and emotional aspects of divorce. This experience led to create a radio show entitled “The Hour Hour.” Over 100 hourlong shows are available as podcasts on my website. I also have a blog post at the Psychology Today website which can be found by googling my name, Lawrence H. Bloom and Psychology Today. I have done other podcasts (links on my website, at "The Divorce Hour" page. I am also the only non-lawyer featured in the just published (February 2020) book, "The Truth About Marriage." I am arranging for Zoom meeting during this time of quarantine. I look forward to speaking with you.

Family Law Attorney

Lawrence was very rude and sarcastic! I would never refer anyone to him ! I don’t have to write a long paragraph explaining what conversation took place between him and I. I feel as though lawyers should be very professional at all times.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My hourly rate is commensurate with my 40 years of experience in matrimonial and family law. I try not to quote a retainer fee without first speaking with the client to determine the minimum number of hours that I expect to devote to the case; and then quote a realistic fee.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first thing is a call to set up a meeting (either in person or during these times of coronavirus virtually). Then we determine whether we want to commence litigation immediately with possibly some Court involvement for motion practice or whether we want to approach the matter in a more "friendly" way by writing a letter to explore the possibility of settlement.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    After 6 months of general practice, during the summer of 1980, I went to work for a lawyer whose practice was devoted to hotly contested divorces with detailed financial disclosure, complex motion practice, trials and appeals. I learned there that the best way to leverage a client's position was to do so from a position of strength which means a very strong initial posture.
