Howard Jr, Douglas
Mr. Howard and his team are sincerely and passionately dedicated to their clients & children of such. I went through several "family law specialists" who had a smaller retainer, but ended up charging me outrageous fees while getting nothing done! I came to a point where I was very discouraged with attorneys only responding at their convenience and upon opposing counsel's request. I can tell you- this is not the case with Mr. Howard and his staff! They extremely PROFESSIONAL and will Email you any and all correspondence right away. They are STRATEGIC and FORWARD-THINKING. This attorney knows the law very well and is extremely efficient. He managed to resolve major complications within less than 3 months when other attorneys did nothing for 3 years! It was well worth it and I feel blessed that I was able to find and retain this attorney as he has defended me and protected my child as if we were his own family. If you want a lawyer who will get things done, GET HOWARD! No regrets!

I have used these guys more than once for minor legal problems, and they are the best. They will not forget you exist or make you wait forever before they call you back. They are very friendly and easy to work with and, most importantly, great at making annoying legal problems go away. Even if you do not currently have a legal problem and don't expect to, write down their number and put it in your wallet anyway. Because seriously, they are the people you want to call first is something dumb happens. Even if you got yourself into the situation by being stupid and/or irresponsible, they will put you at ease and figure it out for you without making you feel like the idiot you might actually be.

Seth Bloom routinely went out of his way to provide outstanding service with a couple of legal issues I’ve faced since relocating to New Orleans. He’s extremely knowledgeable as a criminal defense professional, and never failed to give me the most sound advice on my legal proceedings. Most importantly, I feel that Seth is really out for my best interest—as his client, I felt that he does really care. His staff was extremely on top of both my cases and even answered questions and email after hours and on the weekend. I would highly recommend Seth for anyone in need in the New Orleans area.

Calogero Law Firm
When life strikes you with many unpredictable things, and when the most horrible things happen, it is always amazing to meet people who you can count on. Gerald Calogero is not only a amazing person, good listener, but, since the first day, he has been outstanding, hard working, consistent, persistent, and he never leaves you out of the loop. I had a very difficult and serious injury case, and I could never imagine that it will have positive consequences, but Gerald Calogero took a good care of everything. Highly recommend for anyone who needs a lawyer.

Mr. Bloom has a great practice in New Orleans. His office is extremely easy to find and his staff is professional and efficient. He worked well with my case and got me the results I wanted. He is very detail oriented, often times stopping to ask if I had questions and clarifying all points of confusion. My whole family has been happy with his work and we use him whenever trouble arises. We have been very happy with his work so far and plan to use him for any problems that may arise in the future.

I was referred to Seth when I had to sue my flood insurance carrier after Hurricane Katrina. Seth was extremely professional, knowledgable and timely in keeping me informed about the progress of my case. Seth ultimaltely got us policy limits; we were very pleased. Several years later when I was seriously injured in a car accident, I again called Seth. We ultimately settled for $5000 less than policy limits. Again, I was extremely satisfied. I give Seth Bloom my highest recommendation!

Although I typically avoid situations that require legal help, I accidentally got into an issue while at school here in NOLA. Being far away from home made it a bit more challenging, but having met Seth before, I had help right away. He was very helpful with the situation and offered great advice for future issues as well as how to avoid these problems better. Everything was taken care of and Seth's office did it all effectively and discretely.

My experience with Bloom Legal has been nothing short of excellent. I was dealing with a routine traffic ticket but I was quite concerned about how it would affect my clean driving record. Seth Bloom and everyone I dealt with at Bloom Legal not only put my mind at ease, but they took care of the ticket while keeping my record in tact. I would recommend Seth to anyone looking for courtesy, honesty, and results.

Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
