Lisa founded and owns a prominent nine attorney civil rights law firm, The Bloom Firm, representing celebrity clients like Kathy Griffin and Mischa Barton, as well as ordinary people seeking justice in all areas of civil litigation and family law, and especially victims of domestic violence, sexual harassment, race or sex discrimination, sexual assault, and police excessive force. Lisa has been chosen as a SuperLawyer for three years straight and has a perfect 10.0 rating on Avvo.com. The Hollywood Reporter recently named Lisa a top Hollywood “power lawyer” and she’s appeared on countless ten best lists. She’s been litigating — and winning — a defamation case on behalf of Janice Dickinson against Bill Cosby for two years. This year she’s most proud of creating and executing the media and legal strategy that brought down serial sexual harasser Bill O’Reilly.
A popular award-winning speaker to business, student and women’s audiences, Lisa has been interviewed by Barbara Walters, Oprah Winfrey, Larry King, Rachel Ray, Piers Morgan, Montel Williams, Julie Chen, Matt Lauer, Diane Sawyer, Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer, Whoopi Goldberg, Nancy Grace and hundreds of others in the US, England, Ireland, Australia and throughout the English speaking world.
