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 and employment law. 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.

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. She is also a member of the Association of Certified Family Law Specialists. Joy is married with two children.

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS
HAVE TO SAY?

  • I met with Joy and she put my mind at ease.

    “I met with Joy and she put my mind at ease. My biggest concern was my kids and being protected for our future. She guided me in what was to come and advised me that it's going to be a process with everything that myself and my husband had going on. She was willing to work with me and I truly appreciated that. She also let me know that for part of what I was going through, I didn't need a lawyer. She was trying to save me some money. Who does that nowadays? She was very sympathetic to my situation and showed that she really cared. Once my current situation is dealt with I will be going to her to file my divorce.”

    Susan

  • Her wisdom, grace, and honesty are second to none.

    “If you are looking for an ethical attorney who truly cares for her clients, will go above and beyond, and one who isn’t just in it for dollars and cents then Joy is your woman. I feel incredibly lucky to have found her, from our initial consult to Joy helping me through my case, Joy always made sure to have time for me, gave me valuable information, and weighed out the pros and cons. Joy takes a holistic approach to matters but she will also fight for you. She didn’t always tell me what I wanted to hear but told me what I NEEDED to hear. Her wisdom, grace, and honesty are second to none. If you’re thinking about getting an attorney, you will be lucky to have her! Joy is truly one of a kind.”

    Layla

  • I am so grateful to Joy Kraft Miles!

    “I am so grateful to Joy Kraft Miles for my initial zoom consult. During such an emotional time, Joy was kind and very informative. Thank you Joy!”

    Julie P.

  • The entire staff at Kraft Miles went above and beyond their duties at all times from day 1!

    “I have been in and out of family court for the past 14 years battling a high conflict case. I have had a total of 5 different attorneys prior to finding this firm. This firm is the ONLY firm that made me feel cared for, heard, and understood. The patience they had for all my questions, issues and concerns, the dedication working late hours to do the best job possible. The true care and attention they put into my case makes this firm the best firm I have ever dealt with. My case is a high conflict case and before I found Brigitte and Joy I was completely lost and taken advantage of by my previous attorneys. The entire staff at Kraft Miles went above and beyond their duties at all times from day 1! Having dealt with so many attorneys, I would, hands down, recommend this firm to everyone in need of representation. They have been a light in my path after such a long dark road! I am so grateful.”

    Sheyla C.

  • I can't thank you enough!

    “Thank you for being so sweet, kind, caring and supportive in the past three years even though it wasn't easy for anyone. I'm deeply sorry that you had to deal with my crazy marriage, but without you the end wouldn't have happened. I am extremely happy it is over! I can't thank you enough!”
