WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS
HAVE TO SAY?

  • The entire staff at Kraft Miles went above and beyond their duties at all times from day 1!

    “I have been in and out of family court for the past 14 years battling a high conflict case. I have had a total of 5 different attorneys prior to finding this firm. This firm is the ONLY firm that made me feel cared for, heard, and understood. The patience they had for all my questions, issues and concerns, the dedication working late hours to do the best job possible. The true care and attention they put into my case makes this firm the best firm I have ever dealt with. My case is a high conflict case and before I found Brigitte and Joy I was completely lost and taken advantage of by my previous attorneys. The entire staff at Kraft Miles went above and beyond their duties at all times from day 1! Having dealt with so many attorneys, I would, hands down, recommend this firm to everyone in need of representation. They have been a light in my path after such a long dark road! I am so grateful.”

    Sheyla C.

  • Joy has been a beacon of strength and competence during my multiple suits from my ex, and always keeps in mind what is in the children's best interests.

    “Joy has been my attorney for over two years. She's the third attorney I hired for my high-conflict, post-judgment divorce issues with my ex-husband who happens to be the head of his own law firm. Joy is very calm and reasonable and honest. She will tell you what is and is not worth fighting. She will make sure you're not fighting a losing battle or one you have no chance of winning. She'll give her spot on opinions about going to court vs. settling vs. mediation. In the face of nasty letters from my ex and his counsel, she stays cool and responds rationally, diffusing the situation. She keeps me up to date on communications between the parties and is easily available by phone or email during business hours. She is very responsive and will let me know when I'm wasting money on a matter. (I should add that he is the one constantly suing me, not me suing him.) Joy has been a beacon of strength and competence during my multiple suits from my ex, and always keeps in mind what is in the children's best interests. I highly recommend Joy for any divorce issues you may have. I have referred several friends to her and everyone has been happy with their results.”

    Former Client

  • To say that Joy Kraft-Miles is an expert is an understatement.

    “Divorce is not an experience that you look forward to. It's also messy and very stressful because of the emotions and people involved. For me, hiring a lawyer was a necessity not because I wanted to penalize my ex, but because I wanted an expert that would help me navigate the cumbersome process. To say that Joy Kraft-Miles is an expert is an understatement. She is a consummate professional with a solid reputation at the Chatsworth Courthouse. Initially, I tried to tackle the process myself by going to the self-help center and filling out the documents on my own. This turned out to be overwhelming. She took my case even though I had a pending DV case. I spoke with four lawyers prior to Joy who would not take my case because of the DV. She whipped through my paperwork in one meeting and told me my case could be brought to resolution with my help. I listened to her advice, asked millions of questions and continuously asked her and her legal secretary Marcos to clarify terms, rulings, and paperwork when I did not understand what was going on. I trusted Joy from the first meeting. I think that is really important; to trust the person that you are working with. She was exceptional to work with under the circumstances. I highly recommend Joy as she has the highest integrity and is very professional.”

  • She handles each matter with care

    “I am a family lawyer. I regularly refer matters to Joy with confidence. She handles each matter with care. Joy is always looking for ways to improve her practice”

  • A+++

    “She is very experienced and knows the law like the back of her hand. She has defended me with integrity, passion and success.”
