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, and property issues including complex asset division. 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.

    Ralph

  • Honest with their advice, attentive and very helpful throughout a very difficult time

    “My experience with Kraft Miles A Law Corporation was positive from the first moment I had my 30 minute consultation with Joy and Leyla. Joy Miles and Leyla Zerehi were honest with their advice, attentive and very helpful throughout a very difficult time. I hired them last minute (a week before my scheduled court date). Attorney Leyla Zerehi was with me every step of the way and fought for my 2 sons and my protection. I am very thankful and relieved. The retainer fee is well worth it if you want professionalism and someone who cares by your side in a courtroom. I would definitely hire again.”
