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?

  • The savings of time to the courts, as well as the costs to the parties, states the obvious.

    “Joy Kraft Miles, who is similarly ingratiating to the clients and a very smart family law practitioner. Yet, in spite of the sour history between the parties, through the mediators' tireless efforts, the case was settled after both of them exercised their years of experience to resolve the case. The savings of time to the courts, as well as the costs to the parties, states the obvious.”

    Stephen

  • She will go out of her way to help you out!

    “Very nice and helpful lady, she helped me out a lot. I recommend everyone to her, she will go out of her way to help you out!”

    Alberto

  • Best litigator by far and to make things better she cares about her clients and strives to have you walking away happy.

    “After having lost twice, I saw no hope in sight. I just wanted to be around my son more. I came to Kraft Miles with just my courage and she immediately gave me hope. My ex hired an extremely strong attorney. I'd gone through one attorney that sucked and tried to represent myself on the 2nd time around, only to be taken for a ride by my ex's attorney. Ms. Kraft Miles came in and turned it around. She won my case and got me almost a month of extra vacation time a year with my son. She is uber-confident and knowledgeable. Best litigator by far and to make things better she cares about her clients and strives to have you walking away happy. This attorney is rare and I can promise you she is a 1 out of 100 type of lawyer.”

    Former Client

  • She is top tier counsel, and worth every minute of her time.

    “Joy has been an outstanding attorney and one of the best in all of CA. She knows the law - a brilliantly sharp ally on your side when you need the right lawyer to help you through a divorce, child custody, and/or financial situations resulting from divorce. From the moment I consulted Joy to the final signing of my divorce, she proceeded with professional communication, always returned my calls, answered my emails promptly and displayed professional acumen in the courtroom. Joy is honest and makes sure you're prepared for any outcome. She is top tier counsel, and worth every minute of her time. Lastly and more importantly, she has a good heart. She understands divorce is not easy, she helped me from near homelessness to a place of peace and safety in my life, and her staff is just as amazing. They conduct business with compassion, and they communicate promptly. You're treated with importance, not as if you're just a client. Joy and her firm are certainly highly recommended, and if you want to win, call her today!”
