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. 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 an effective litigator, 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. She is currently serving as an elected Trustee for the San Fernando Valley Bar Association for the 2019-2020 term. Joy is married with two children.

  • Her advice has been spot on and I have always felt that she tries not to over-promise and yet always over-delivers.

    “Joy is very knowledgeable and has concern for her clients that goes well above what they could pay. Her advice has been spot on and I have always felt that she tries not to over-promise and yet always over-delivers. If she knows some issues will be tough, she tells you and lets you decide if you want to spend the money trying anyhow. But when you do, she does her best to pull off a miracle. Great staff too! Thanks for all the help.”
