Joy Kraft Miles is the President of Kraft Miles, A Law Corporation. Joy began working for her mother at the Law Offices of Marcia Kraft in 1994, when Joy was a receptionist and billing clerk. Since then, Joy has held the positions of office manager, law clerk/paralegal, associate attorney, and partner—she has literally held every position in the firm, working her way from the bottom up, including, at one point, doing the tech support. Prior to acquiring this firm, Joy was a partner of Kraft, Miles & Miller, LLP with her mother Marcia L. Kraft and Lawrence Miller, where she practiced family law, employment law, and estate planning. Joy is a caring and conscientious attorney dedicated to serving clients during their major life transitions, such as marriage, childbirth, death, and divorce. Joy thrives in the courtroom and has long loved the pursuit of social justice. Prior to private practice, Joy clerked for Family Law and Civil Unlimited Court judges in the Los Angeles Superior Court, where she gained insight on viewing cases from a judge’s perspective. Joy is now practicing as a family law certified specialist. The State Bar certifies attorneys as specialists who have gone beyond the standard licensing requirements.

With her diligent work ethic and extensive experience in the courtroom, Joy always delivers strategic and effective advocacy. Joy focuses on complex divorce and family law matters, including business valuations, forensic accounting, hidden assets and income, move-away child custody battles, prenuptial agreements, restraining orders, and allegations of domestic violence and child abuse. In addition to being a family law certified specialist, Joy is also an experienced mediator.

Moreover, Joy strongly advises clients to prepare an estate plan or will upon getting married, purchasing real property, having children, or getting divorced. She stresses the importance of contemplating who will take care of your health and financial decisions if you become incapacitated, who will serve as guardians for your children if you should die while they are minors, or how to pass your wealth onto your loved ones.

Joy earned a Juris Doctor from Southwestern Law School, a Master’s degree in Education from UCLA, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from California State University, Long Beach. Prior to attending law school, she taught high school history and art history in the Los Angeles Unified School District for eleven years. Joy is currently serving as an elected trustee of the San Fernando Valley Bar Association, and as President of the Valley Community Legal Foundation, the charitable arm of the San Fernando Valley Bar Association. Joy is married with two children.

  • I would highly recommend Joy and Kraft Miles, A Law Corporation.

    “As soon as I went in for my consultation with Joy, I knew I didn't need to go meet with anyone else. She was professional and very understanding of my situation. Her prices were reasonable and I couldn't have asked for Joy and her team to represent me any better. They were on top of any correspondence I sent, answered all of my questions and concerns. Joy also "talked me off the ledge" sometimes making me see reason, thereby saving me money. I would highly recommend Joy and Kraft Miles, A Law Corporation”
