Karla L. de la Vega-Winters

ParalegalKarla L. de la Vega-Winters

Karla L. de la Vega-Winters is our firm’s paralegal. She has over 20 years of experience in family law, a juris doctorate from American College of Law, and a bachelor’s degree in Political Science/Pre-Law with a minor in Economics from University of the Pacific, Stockton, California campus. Karla is a Certificated Mediator with a background in Collaborative Law, a legal process where couples work together to reach settlement without the threat of litigation.

While her background is in mediation and collaboration, Karla also possesses the skills to assist in litigation and trial preparation. She has extensive knowledge and understanding of the divorce process from the beginning to the end, whether the case is conscious uncoupling or requires court intervention. Karla has the intelligence and bedside manner to assist clients with the legal paperwork that may otherwise be daunting to them—in particular, discovery, mandatory financial disclosures, child support paperwork, and judicial council forms. She offers value to clients on a limited budget, as she can draft paperwork for attorney review.

Karla is a “serial volunteer” who donates several hours to her kids’ schools, serving as a Board Member of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), the Girls Scouts, and her church. On the weekends, you can find her either in the bleachers cheering on her son’s lacrosse team, or on the soccer field cheering for her daughter’s soccer team. She also enjoys football (she is an avid San Francisco 49er’s fan), LA Kings hockey, Dodgers baseball, theater, and dreams of retirement as a sommelier in France or a scuba diving instructor in Maui.

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS
HAVE TO SAY?

  • I thank God I made the decision to hire our attorney Joy Kraft Miles and her terrific staff!

    “We were in family court today with the uncooperative respondent and his attorney. My attorney and I tried to get them to come to an agreement, rather than have the judge make the decision for us. They refused. Our attorney advised them the judge would not look favorably on their request and that if the judge made the decision it would favor us. They were uncooperative and our attorney presented our case. The judge granted all our motions as presented by our attorney!! Tomorrow we will get to see the kids which we have not seen for over a year and a half!!! I thank God I made the decision to hire our attorney Joy Kraft Miles and her terrific staff! I would urge anyone that needs a “bulldog” staff that will fight for you - — I recommend Joy and her staff.”

  • You can't do any better than Joy if you are facing or involved in any Family Law Matter.

    “Joy Kraft Miles recently appeared on KABC radio's show So What's Your Problem? She gave great legal advice to our listeners, she is a very caring person! You can't do any better than Joy if you are facing or involved in any Family Law Matter........She's the best there is!!”

  • In her office she is attentive & mild mannered, however in the courtroom, she is like a JUNKYARD DOG!

    “Child custody and divorce cases can be costly, anyone going into one should know that up front. That being said, Joy Kraft has been extremely reasonable & willing to work with me. The initial law firm I used was much more expensive & yielded zero results. Iin fact, I believe even hurt my case from the start. Joy took over my case & since then things have been moving in my direction & getting much better. My case is a child custody case & when it initially started (before Joy took over) I only had 6hrs of visitation per week with my child. I now have 3 overnights & 2 weekdays every other week & my case is most certainly not over so more time is on it's way. I went from about 5% time with my child to about 30% with more time most certainly on the way. Joy pays attention to detail & she knows my case just as well as I do. In her office she is attentive & mild-mannered, however in the courtroom, she is like a JUNKYARD DOG ! She is quit impressive in the courtroom & she knows family law just as well as she will know your case. I could not be happier with my choice of representation. I feel very confident knowing I have a lawyer who knows my case & is fighting tooth & nail on my behalf. I highly recommend Joy Kraft to anyone going through a Family Law issue”

    “Kraft Miles, A Law Corporation was outstanding and amazing. Ms. Miles, Ms. Nordon, and the whole Kraft Miles staff provided us with the best service and support during a time of need. They simplified the law, our entitlement, and explained everything that was going on during the trial. Thank you for accepting our case last minute, staying engaged throughout the whole process, and always being a phone call away when we needed (which was a lot) your guidance. Great service and thank you all.”

  • I never felt like just another client.

    “Hiring Joy as my attorney was the best decision I could have made. I never felt like just another client. She took the time to explain everything and never made me feel like I was a bother. I have already recommended her to a friend and will continue to do so.”
