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.

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS
HAVE TO SAY?

  • Her main concern was my children and their well being.

    “My attorney was very informative, patient and understanding.”

    Liliana

  • 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.”

    Felix

  • 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

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.”
