The team at Bloem were able to help me avoid more serious prosecutions and I would like to thank Anoushka and Tina for their support over that time.

Auckland High Court, July 2021.

Great and professional service, have basically achieved the impossible. Very grateful for everything, would totally pass on.


These are the people you want in your corner! Smart, professional, over all the details, and passionate about helping their clients in their time of need. Can’t recommend highly enough!

I am a lawyer in Auckland who has referred work to Anoushka Bloem before. I have no hesitation in recommending her services for criminal matters. She is highly intelligent (honours student), hardworking, experienced, caring, ethical and reasonably priced.


I've done a lot of work with Anoushka and her team in my role as a private investigator. Their excellent success rate in court and ability to get the very best outcome possible is due to their thoroughness, determination and how much they care about every single client. Anoushka lives every case she takes on and simply won't settle for second best. Bloem & Associates are the lawyers you want if you or someone you care about is in trouble.

Anoushka Bloem and associates are fantastic. We hope to never have need of your services again. I say that in a nice way. But you can get so lost and caught up in our justice system if you don’t have a good legal team behind you. Anoushka and her team support are outstanding. If you ever need a criminal lawyer I 100% recommend Bloem and Associates, not only will they give you one heck of an outstanding defence, they make sure you understand all the way what your charge/s are, what happens next, keep you informed, and make you feel like you’re somebody. Without their expertise I feel they would have locked him up and thrown away the key, and even when you serve your time, they are there with you through parole till you’re released. I want to thank you for everything and I will without hesitation recommend Bloem and Associates to anyone that needs a criminal lawyer. Thank you so much.

Parole Hearing, April 2022.

If you are looking for professional representation, responsiveness and exceptional, knowledgeable lawyers that specialise only in criminal law than look no further than Bloem & Associates.
We cannot praise Anoushka Bloem and the entire Bloem & Associates team enough for their professionalism, transparency, honesty, attention to detail, concern for client and sense of fairness. Not only was Anoushka and her team able to defend our whānau from an unjust accusation, her calm and empathetic demeanour offered emotional succour to our whānau throughout the entire process from the very beginning. You were treated as whānau and not as regular clients or a number. We are eternally grateful for their service and therefore it is no surprise that we highly endorse Anoushka and the team at Bloem & Associates. Bloem & Associates has no equal!

Court of Appeal, June 2021.

Our 19 year old son was charged in 2020 with raping his ex girlfriend at a party six months prior.  We had no idea what we needed to do - like deers in headlights.  Once we met with Anoushka and had a chance to put my sons side of the story across we felt relieved.  Anoushka believed in our son which was the most important thing to us.  Anoushka and her team worked tirelessly over the next 2 years, with multiple delays in hearings and trial dates due to COVID.  She managed to keep our son focused and calm through the trial and the team really looked after us as a family through the trial and whilst waiting for the verdict.  The 2 words we had waited 2 years to hear - NOT GUILTY - the relief washed over us all!!! Anoushka, Jong, Katie and the whole team at Bloem & Associates literally saved our sons life and we will be forever grateful.

Auckland District Court, March 2022.

I just wanted to formally thank you for your efforts throughout these four years and for your continued support for my appeal. The way you were in court not only impressed me but my whole support crew who were there and my brother in Fiji. I always knew from the first time I met you to discuss my case that you are a very committed person. Over these years my respect for your calibre, your manner, your performance, even during some ridiculously tough and irritating situations throughout this journey, has risen to the highest level. My daughter is so impressed by you that she is now definitely choosing a career as a lawyer! It was her first experience ever in a courtroom and what makes it more memorable for her is that it was for her dad. I don't know whether you realize this, but you have given me (and my daughter) a new lease of life. Our trust in the justice system has been made more concrete. My daughter, my brother and I, and the rest of my support crew thank you, with the highest respect and honour. It has been a pleasure working with you to get justice for me.

July 2021.

On behalf of [x] , myself and my family would like to express our greatest gratitude to you and your team for all of your patience and work towards [x's] case.  This has been a journey and a half and we would like to thank you sincerely for all of your hard work.  Thank you once again and all the best for your future work.

Auckland District Court, September 2018

Anoushka stepped in as lawyer at my sentencing because my assigned lawyer was unavailable. At first, I was nervous to have a new lawyer at the last minute. Especially at sentencing because my charges are serious and I am facing imprisonment. However, with limited knowledge of the facts and a grumpy judge, Anoushka got the desired outcome.  My sentencing got put off so I could complete programmes to reduce my sentence and better myself.

Me and my family were really impressed. The biggest thing for me is I felt she actually cared. The law can make you feel like just another face, another number. She made me feel like someone was batting for me. I even tried to sack my assigned lawyer, so I could use her full time! A lawyer who listens and actually represents you.

Auckland District Court, November 2017

Thank you Anoushka for the great job you have done for my son. Even though he made a big mistake, he has had a big wakeup call and won’t be making this mistake again. By successfully appealing to get a discharge without conviction he now has a second chance at life.

Anoushka was systematic and professional in her approach. I felt confident that she knew what she was doing and this was a huge relief in a highly stress time of my life.

Anoushka’s knowledge of the law and her judgement are second to none. She was always willing to listen to me, even when others didn’t believe in my innocence. She was willing to fight for my cause and was a shining light in a very dark time in my life
