Client Comments about Beth:
"I highly recommend Beth Bloom to anyone experiencing workplace harassment. Ms. Bloom successfully guided me through a difficult settlement process with my former employer. She realistically set my expectations at the beginning of the process, and then worked to make those expectations a reality. I interviewed several attorneys before I selected Ms. Bloom. I found her to be highly skilled and knowledgeable, but more important, a professional I could trust completely to maintain my welfare as the first priority." - Maritime employee
