WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS
HAVE TO SAY?

  • This attorney is rare and I can promise you she is a 1 out of 100 type lawyer.

    “After having lost twice, I saw no hope in sight. I just wanted to be around my son more. I came to Kraft Miles with just my courage and she immediately gave me hope. My ex hired an extremely strong attorney. I'd gone through one attorney that sucked and tried to represent myself on the 2nd time around, only to be taken for a ride by my ex's attorney. Ms. Kraft Miles came in and turned it around. She won my case and got me almost a month of extra vacation time a year with my son. She is uber-confident and knowledgeable. Best litigator by far and to make things better she cares about her clients and strives to have you walking away happy. This attorney is rare and I can promise you she is a 1 out of 100 type lawyer.”

  • I can't thank this firm enough for the advice provided in times of need.

    “She listened to her explain her situation, was patient with her the entire consultation, and gave wonderful advice.”

  • If you have any family/custody issues do not hesitate to consult and hire Joy, she's a legal genie!

    “I came to Joy after several years of custody issues with my daughter that I thought would be resolved by itself. Initially, I would only see my daughter one night a week and one day on the weekend with no overnights. I tried to reason with my ex but with no success. The odds of getting equal custody (50/50) were not in my favor, but I figured something had to be done because I wasn't seeing my daughter and I didn't want to lose the precious time with my young daughter. I was scared of the legal cost they might incur during the process and the child support I will need to pay (my ex has not been working, or at least claimed to not be working).

    What started out as a simple custody case quickly escalated into a legal nightmare when the mother of my child filed a restraining order and tried every legal maneuver to prolong the custody hearing of our child. Joy and her team were able to diffuse the legal roller coasters I was going through, present the judge with the facts, and show the lack of credibility of my ex.

    Joy is professional, caring, and will go out of her way to make sure her clients are represented. On one of our court appearances, my ex managed to change the judge (a commissioner) to a different courthouse on the same day in the afternoon. Joy had another case in the afternoon and could not represent me, however, she managed to find just as good a replacement to represent me at a moment's notice free of charge! Sounds too good to be true.

    When I first came in to consult with Joy about my situation I was worried about the legal cost that might add up. I will never forget when she said "this will be the best money you ever spent". Boy was she right! I now have 50/50 custody, don't have to pay my ex as much child support as we originally anticipated, Joy managed to convince the judge to impute more than a minimum wage salary on my ex, but most of all I have the peace of mind my daughter will share equal time with both of her parents.

    If you have any family/custody issues do not hesitate to consult and hire Joy, she's a legal genie!


    I've said it many times and I'll continue to say it, thank you Joy!

  • I worked with both Leslie and Marcia and was very impressed with their thoroughness and attention to detail.

    “These attorneys are easy to work with, and definitely have the best interests of their clients at the forefront of their practice!”

    Ashley

  • I can't thank her and her staff enough for the peace of mind they gave me.

    “Joy Kraft Miles is a kind, warm-hearted professional. Joy's knowledge of the law is more than impressive. I came to her with a heavy heart and the fear of having to go through a custody battle. Joy immediately put me at ease like a warm blanket on a cold day. Her staff was very helpful and accommodating, I never ended a phone call with questions afterward. After 4 months of waiting, we finally went to court and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Joy really made things go easier than anticipated. I can't thank her and her staff enough for the peace of mind they gave me.”
