The Honorable Beth Bloom
United States District Judge, Southern District of Florida
A View from the Bench: Tips for Lawyers
Practicing in State and Federal Courts
Please join us for DCDBA's first CLE luncheon of 2015 featuring Beth Bloom, one of the two most recent judges to be appointed to the United States Southern District of Florida in 2014.  Judge Bloom began her legal career in private practice. She subsequently joined the judiciary, first serving as a Traffic Magistrate and then as a County Court Judge in 1995.  In 2010, Governor Charlie Crist appointed her to the Circuit Court. On February 6, 2014, President Barack Obama nominated Judge Bloom to fill the seat previously held by Judge Donald Graham. On June 24, 2014, the U.S. Senate confirmed Judge Bloom’s nomination by a 95-0 vote. Judge Bloom will review what she expects from attorneys who appear in her courtroom.  She will also discuss strategies for practicing attorneys in both state and federal courts, and will address the differences between the two courts with regard to technology and discovery. As always, the presentation will be followed by a question and answer session.
