  • Excellent immigration lawyer!

    “I hired attorney Robert Milla to file for my papers here in Chicago. I waited for over 20 years to apply for my green card. Overall, the service was outstanding. He took the time to answer all my questions, he was honest about what to expect and there were no hidden charges for his services. I paid one flat fee for his services and I did not have to pay everything upfront. I recommend him for immigration services and I have recommended one friend and my cousin and they both had the same experience that I did.
