Sarah Bloom is an associate attorney at the Bloom Firm. She is currently admitted to practice in California and New York.
Sarah is an employment litigator who focuses her practice on fighting for clients who have experienced sexual harassment, discrimination, and/or retaliation in the workplace. In 2019, Sarah was part of The Bloom Firm trial team that secured a landmark $11 million jury verdict in an employment sexual harassment and retaliation trial, which is one of the biggest single-plaintiff sexual harassment verdicts in California.
Sarah received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania and her Juris Doctor degree from Fordham University School of Law, where she graduated in the top ten percent of her class and was named Order of the Coif. During law school, Sarah interned with the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York in the Violent Crimes and Human Trafficking Divisions. Sarah also published a note during law school on why revenge porn should be criminalized titled: “No Vengeance for ‘Revenge Porn’ Victims: Unraveling Why This Latest Female-Centric, Intimate-Partner Offense is Still Legal, and Why We Should Criminalize It,” 42 Fordham Urb. L.J. 234 (2014).
Prior to joining The Bloom Firm, Sarah worked for an Am Law 100 firm in New York City representing clients in labor and employment and complex commercial litigation matters. Sarah was on the firm’s pro bono committee and represented a variety of pro bono clients including: two Syrian refugees’ successful application for asylum, a Honduran domestic violence victim in her application for asylum, Section 8 housing tenants in landlord disputes, and Clemency Project applicants seeking commutation of their criminal sentences.
