Attorney Profile

Julia L. Miranda

Julia L. Miranda graduated with honors from California State University Fullerton. She graduated with honors from Western State University Law School in 2000. Her practice is exclusively devoted to all aspects of Family Law and the Dissolution of Marriage. Ms. Miranda is a dedicated and compassionate attorney who has settled and litigated all aspects of family law, including child custody and support issues, spousal support matters, division of property, (including community businesses), both civil and domestic violence restraining orders, as well as modification and enforcement of family law orders and judgments. She is also experienced in the formation and termination of guardianships and LPS and probate conservatorships.

Mrs. Miranda is one of only a few attorneys whose hourly rate is based upon a sliding scale to ensure that no one is excluded from representation by an experienced family law attorney simply due to financial concerns. Mrs. Miranda provides full service representation, however, she also handles limited scope representation matters. Limited scope representation is an excellent way for a client who wishes to represent him or herself, to obtain legal advice, document preparation, or representation at a single hearing from an experienced family law attorney, without having to pay the usual full retainer. The benefit to you is that you can use your litigation budget best by doing the simpler parts of the case yourself and focusing the attorney’s time on the complicated tasks that you do not think you can do effectively yourself. This way you keep greater control of your case that if the attorney was handling the entire case.

Ms. Miranda is also skilled in the enforcement of family law judgments and orders. She has extensive experience in the enforcement of judgment and was previously corporate counsel for SK Judgment Recovery Services, Inc. Mrs. Miranda is skilled in all aspects of judgment enforcement including the preparation of writs of execution, levies, garnishment of wages, judicial foreclosure, sheriff’s sales, turnover orders, and third party claims. She also is accomplished in the protection of assets from the enforcement of judgment, including the procedures by which an abstract of judgment may be released and a judgment satisfied. This is particularly important when an abstract of a support judgment has been filed against real property, as the procedures to prevent the abstract from becoming a lien on the property are entirely different from the procedures applicable to a standard money judgment. Mrs. Miranda is the recipient of the American Jurisprudence Award for Professional Responsibility and Trusts. She is admitted to practice in all California Courts, as well as the Eastern, Southern, and Central United States District Courts. She is a member of the California State Bar Family Law Section, The Orange County Bar Association Family Law Section


“I had the pleasure of meeting Julia Miranda in one of my greatest times of need. I had what I thought was a very hard case, especially being that I was 2100 miles away. Not only did she reassure me that there was hope, but she was also very professional and during my greatest time of need helped me see that there was light at the end of the tunnel. Not once, did I ever hang up the phone with questions still left on my mind.”
