Marcia L. KraftMarcia L. Kraft (1945-2019)

A pioneer for female attorneys heading their own multi-associate law firms in the San Fernando Valley, Marcia L. Kraft had been in private practice in Woodland Hills and Simi Valley since 1990, representing both plaintiffs and defendants, petitioners and respondents. She was “of counsel” for Kraft Miles, A Law Corporation, Marcia used her wealth of experience to counsel the attorneys of the firm. She understood all aspects of family law, including divorce, child custody, property issues including complex asset division, probate, estate planning, and the preparation of wills and trusts. She also guided the practice of legal matters involving personal injury and employment law. With her depth of legal experience along with her ability to represent a diverse clientele, Marcia formed a highly effective law firm committed to achieving favorable results, handing over the torch to her daughter Joy, who is now the successive leader of the “matriarchy.”

Marcia was a member of various referral services including the San Fernando Valley Bar Association, the Ventura County Bar Association, and numerous others.

Marcia served as an Arbitrator in the Ventura County Superior Court, a Mediator on Probate and Family Law matters for Los Angeles County Superior Court, and had sat as Judge Pro Tem in both Small Claims and Traffic courts.

In June of 2018, Marcia received an award from the Valley Community Legal Foundation (“VCLF”) of the San Fernando Valley Bar Association for “Exemplary Community Service” related to her outstanding philanthropic contributions to the San Fernando Valley. The VCLF does charitable work providing scholarships and grants to the community. In addition to serving a term as its President, Marcia chaired the development and installation of the Children’s Waiting Rooms at the Van Nuys and San Fernando courthouses.

Marcia earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and her Juris Doctor from Southwestern University in Los Angeles, California.

  • Very blessed to have had Joy as my representation, I recommend her to anybody looking for an attorney of confidence, intelligence, honest, and many steps ahead of the opposition - Joy is superb!

    “Joy is the most marvelous attorney in Los Angeles. From the start she gave a thorough consultation which included both a Domestic Violence Restraining Order and Divorce, she answered many of my questions such as having the notice of related cases, DVRO questions, divorce inquiries, which other law offices I contacted did not inform me of (even with consulting) thus indicating for me, she was the one. She is passionate about her position - which is of high importance to me - especially dealing with a traumatic DVRO, she is delicate and professional. I was quite impressed with her experience in dv/family law - always accruing other information and creative thinking as the cases move. I am so happy with selecting Joy - an empowering woman and attorney who definitely encouraged my confidence going into a very detrimental case, DVRO and Divorce, at the same time.. coming out with a victory, graciously to the thoughtfulness of Joy. The case was stipulated in half the time, which was very beneficial and most importantly: kept me protected. Very blessed to have had Joy as my representation, I recommend her to anybody looking for an attorney of confidence, intelligence, honest, and many steps ahead of the opposition - Joy is superb!”
