The team at Mioni Family Law advises clients on issues related to family law, such as divorce and custody. Owner and attorney Lovette Mioni earned her degree at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles and worked at several local large family law firms before starting her own business in 2014.
Who are some Women in Business you admire?
“All of them. The large business and small business owners. The working moms. The female CEOs, CFOs, CMOs. Running or managing a business—large or small—is hard. Being a working mom is hard. I admire and applaud women who are doing it and find them all inspiring in different ways.”
Which personality traits are most important to be successful in your field?
“Empathy is a big one, realizing clients are coming to me at the most difficult time in their lives and discussing very personal issues—their family and their finances. It is important that I am respectful of their feelings but also guide them to the best possible results. Being capable is another important trait—explaining the law and how it affects clients’ specific situations, then moving them through the divorce process with peace of mind and acceptable results.”
Why did you move to this area?
“My husband and I moved to South Redondo when we knew we wanted to start a family. The South Bay is so family-friendly and has great schools. Six months after we had our first son, I moved my office to the Redondo Riviera to cut down my commute and be closer to home. We love the South Bay bubble.”
Do businesses have a duty to give back to society?
“If they are in a position to do so, they should. Our office takes on pro bono domestic violence cases that are referred to us by the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles—a great resource for so many people affected by domestic violence.”
Has motherhood made you a better entrepreneur?
“Motherhood has definitely made me better at work/life balance, and that is way more important to me at this point in my career and life. I make sure I’m actively present when I’m with my kids, and when I’m at work, I’m fully present for that.”
