SIMON H. BLOOM is the founder of Bloom Parham, LLP. He is a true trial lawyer in every sense. In a time when very few complex commercial litigation matters reach juries, his experience and track record places him on an elite short list of stand up oral advocates. Mr. Bloom has tried cases, argued appeals and handled arbitrations (domestic and international) in venues throughout the United States with great success. Corporate clients turn to him when the stakes are high and to send the message to the opposition that they are not afraid to go to trial. Mr. Bloom graduated from the University of Virginia law school and clerked for two U.S. District Court judges in the Northern District of Alabama. He leads a trial boutique of twelve lawyers out of his Atlanta office. Mr. Bloom teaches and lectures on trial practice, oral advocacy and evidence regularly to lawyers and law students alike. He earned his B.A. degree, with distinction, from the University of Virginia and his J.D. degree from the University of Virginia School of Law.
