Post Conviction

There are many issues that arise after someone has pled, or been found guilty in court, that require an experienced attorney. Many times people are not able to meet the previous orders of the court and require sentence modifications or extensions in time for them to fulfill their obligations. It is always better to retain an seasoned criminal defense attorney, especially in conservative Orange County, to go in for you to request sentence modifications or extensions. Most people are not able to successfully articulate what has caused them not to meet their obligations, or why they need a modification, and quite often make matters worse on themselves by angering a Judge who can find you in violation of probation and increase your punishment.

An outstanding post conviction lawyer like Steven K. Bloom, knows each and every Judge in Orange County. In order to obtain your post conviction request, you have to know your audience and how to persuade them. Many Judges dislike people making excuses and if you come across like you are just making excuses, it will not go well with the Judge. Other Judges are more compassionate but have other strong views that you want to avoid. Attorney Steven Bloom knows what motivates each Judge and know what, and what not, to say to get the results you wish to achieve on your post conviction issue.

Expungements

Expungements fall under Penal Code Section 1203.4 and, if granted, will result in the court vacating your conviction and dismissing your case. The Judge must find that the individual has successfully completed probation, or had probation terminated early, has met all his court obligations and has remained crime free during that time. The expunging of ones record can be a very valuable tool in most cases, as it will legally allow you to declare that you were not convicted of said crime upon filing an application for most everyday jobs. Attorney Steven K. Bloom has successfully filed and had granted countless expungements for all types of cases.

Warrants

Warrants are issued by the court for many reasons. Often times, the court will issue a warrant for individuals that fail to appear at their court date, or fail meet an order of the court, such as miss a payment to the court. When these types of things occur, the court will issue a “Bench Warrant.” If an individual is found by the police to have a bench warrant, the police will take them into custody and house them in their local jail until they transport them to court to address the court.

In order to have a “bench warrant” cleared. The individual, or an attorney retained by the individual, must go to the court issuing the bench warrant and have the clerk send the case to the Duty Judge. The Duty Judge will listen to why the individual was in violation of the court order which caused the warrant to be issued and usually adds on more punishment as a result.

Unless you have years of experience, it is never a good idea to walk into court without excellent legal representation. People go to court with the best of intentions, but then the Judge will ask them a question that they unknowingly answer incorrectly and make matters worse for them. Your freedom is worth hiring an experienced lawyer like Steven Bloom, and knowing things will get done right.

I am So Happy that I hired Attorney, Steve Bloom, to help me with my DUI case. He is Very Professional, Hard working and Extremely Knowledgeable & Very Attention to details. I was scared and worried and he immediately made me feel at ease. Then, over the next number of months, he lived up to everything he said to me over the phone and at our initial consultation. He was able to get many allegations dismissed in court and even won my DMV Hearing, which saved me from having my licensed suspended for 1 year! He is worth every penny I paid him and more. I will give him 5 plus Stars, I definitely will refer anyone who need his help to him .

I’m Monica and I recently hired Steven to work on my case. I did my research and came to the conclusion that he’s the best attorney in Orange County. He has 20 years of experience and is well known online and in person as the best attorney in Orange County. He worked with me and helped with words of advice and calming personality. He always communicated with me and gave me all the details of my case. He’s literally the best attorney from my experience. I had VERY positive results with my case and I would definitely return to Steven if I need help. I highly recommend him he’s helpful, knowledgeable, experienced, communicative, and works hard to really help people. Highly recommend him. Thank you Steven.

I found Steven Bloom on Avvo. I had never needed an attorney so I did not know what I was supposed to be looking for. After calling other attorneys and getting different quotes I almost went with the cheapest but then I called Steven and I'm glad I did. He was so reassuring and walked me through the process. He made sure I got what I asked for and was even able to check with his colleague that my case wouldn't interfere with other legal things I have going on. I will definitely recommend him to friends and family, Thank you Steven!

Steve went above and beyond in helping me resolve a petty theft case. For someone who had never had any run-ins with the law before, the entire process of going to court and retaining an attorney was all new and very frightening. I researched several different attorneys before settling on Steve because he was the only one who really acknowledged my concerns when I described my case to him over the phone. During the consultation, he laid out his game plan and explained exactly how he would tackle my case, and hearing him say that it was very likely that he could resolve it...it was like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. In the end, he was able to get my case dismissed with NO guilty plea, and thus, no conviction on my record. I would highly, highly recommend him to anyone in the OC area looking for a defense attorney, whatever your situation. He is incredibly competent and has so much professional experience, but above all that, his kindness and authenticity are the real deal. He really listens to you and makes you feel at ease despite everything. I can't recommend him enough and I'm so glad I retained him for my case. Thank you so much, Steve.

Steve helped me and my family resolve a DUI case involving several serious charges. Before hiring him, we spoke to a family friend in the Orange County Sheriff's Department who recommended that we prioritize looking for a lawyer who is not only well established in OC but also has extensive experience with the court handling our case, North Justice Court. After interviewing several lawyers around the area, Steve became the clear choice as he is extremely knowledgable about the various judges, prosecutors, and clerks at North Justice and also has many personal connections with those people. The case itself was not easy and a very difficult and exasperating process, but Steve had a very well thought out game plan and was able to execute it while doing his best to keep us reassured the entire way. We are happy with the results that included reduced charges and a significant reduction in fines.

His honesty and beyond fair price was the first reason I hired Steven K Bloom. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. I quickly realized that he is well known and respected in the Orange County Court System. He handled my case very professionally, and he kept me feeling confident through my entire case. At the end of my case all charges against me were dropped. I feel confident in saying, if I had hired some other attorney, the results would not have been the same. He went above and beyond the call of duty for me. If you want the best defense that you can possibly have, I highly recommend Steven K Bloom. Thank you again Steve, I am very grateful for your services
