Gloria Rachel Allred (née Bloom; born July 3, 1941(1941-07-03)) is an American lawyer noted for taking high-profile and often controversial cases. She is the mother of former Court TV hostess Lisa Bloom.

Gloria Rachel Bloom was born in a Jewish family in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on July 3, 1941. After high school, she attended University of Pennsylvania, where she met her first husband. In 1961, the couple had their only child Lisa and, shortly after, divorced.

Allred moved back in with her parents and continued her education. In 1963, she earned a Bachelor's degree in English, graduating with honors. She tried her hand at a variety of jobs before she decided to become a teacher, taking a position at Benjamin Franklin High School. She began work on a graduate degree at New York University, where she became interested in the civil rights movement, then gaining momentum. After earning a Master's degree, she became a teacher and, in 1966, moved to Los Angeles, California and lived in Watts.
