Like the rest of the world, I have been following the boasting, bragging, shameful trail of the various Fox News figures over the years. On the outside, we’ve all become used to being called feminazis and ridiculed — if those guys praised us, we would know we were doing something wrong — but for the women actually working there, we could do nothing without help and evidence.
I just want to say thank you for your willingness to work for principle, to make it possible for Wendy Walsh to speak rather than be silenced by money, and so to attract more witnesses.
And thank you, too, for your strategy in escaping the statute of limitations by calling the hotline — and all the other thoughtful and smart and caring decisions you made.
There is such a lethal addiction to control that comes with the made-up ideas of “masculine” and “feminine.” I know it all comes from trying to control reproduction, and thus the bodies of women, but it’s very new in human history — only the last 500 or so years on this continent. As my friends in Indian Country say, “What did Columbus call primitive? Equal women!” The good and the bad of being human is that we can adapt. It allows our species to survive, and also makes us vulnerable to accepting almost anything.
You stood up for a woman’s right to her own body — the power of the state and of everybody else stops at our skin — and this right to our physical selves is the beginning of freedom, of human rights and maybe one day of actual democracy.
I’m grateful — and so are millions more of us out here.”

NATHALIE GOSSET, CLIENT
“I have only three words to say about Lisa Bloom: whip-smart, fearless protector, Wonder Woman. Okay, that was six words and I have thousands of other words but none will truly be able to capture the emotions I feel about her. She made me whole. She gave me a voice. She helped me learn to protect all women everywhere. She was the mid-wife that gave birth to a badass, big mouth, super Mom — Me! Boil some hot water, Lisa is rolling up her sleeves, and ready to help you too!”
DR. WENDY WALSH, CLIENT

JANE DOE, CLIENT
“Lisa Bloom and everyone at the Bloom Firm are holding my hand through the entire process of my case.

Lisa and her firm are true champions in fighting for the rights of women.”
JANICE DICKINSON, CLIENT
“Service was excellent. I rate The Bloom Firm at 100 plus. From day one the firm made me feel right at home. The environment was comfortable, warm, and very welcoming.

JEFFREY TOOBIN, AUTHOR, THE NINE, CNN SENIOR LEGAL ANALYST
“Feisty, articulate, and driven — she qualified for the Boston Marathon . . . a personal intensity and a fierce sense of outrage about women’s and civil rights, child welfare, and the abuse of power.”
THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
“As Lisa’s mother, my completely unbiased opinion is that Lisa is one of the finest lawyers in the country.”
GLORIA ALLRED, HIGH PROFILE VICTIM’S RIGHTS ATTORNEY
“Lisa Bloom is the thinking woman’s lawyer. If you are a businesswoman, a woman who has suffered discrimination or sexual harassment in the workplace or just need a champion in the courtroom, this is the lawyer you want standing by your side.”
“For the past 6 years I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Lisa Bloom. First doing charity work and various interviews. Not until recently, did I request that she represent me in a case related to my daughter, Lindsay Lohan. As a person, I have not found better, and as an attorney, Lisa is diligent, mindful of clients’ interests, protective of her clients and in all instances, a well versed attorney who doesn’t back down to anyone when her client is right. When representing her clients in the press or media, Lisa puts her self and her own reputation second to the needs of her client. I can go on and on about what and amazing person and attorney Lisa Bloom is.. Obviously, it’s in the genes. Hats off to her mom, Gloria Allred and dad.”
