She also helps clients who have been the victims of domestic violence to obtain appropriate protective orders. Since 2003, Ms. Blum has been certified as a specialist in family law by the Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of California.

She is often quoted in such publications as Variety, People magazine and US Weekly. Many of Ms. Blum's clients have chosen her as a result of direct referrals from other attorneys.

 

As an undergraduate, Ms. Blum attended Cornell University and received a Bachelor of Science in hotel administration in 1987. She pursued her legal education at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law and was awarded her Juris Doctor in 1994.
