Eyzuri Segovia Sanchez is an Associate Attorney with Milla and Associates, LLC who brings a wealth of experience and knowledge as someone who has been with the firm since 2015. Eyzuri was born and raised in Mexico, and her experiences as an immigrant help her understand clients’ needs and concerns from personal and legal perspectives. She is not only compassionate but committed to strategizing and carrying out a successful path for clients. In doing so, she has a special ability to guide her clients through the various stages of cases from planning to obtaining long-awaited approvals.

Eyzuri joined Milla and Associates in 2015 as a paralegal. In that role and as a BIA accredited representative, she was an integral part of obtaining successful results in complex cases before U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Immigration Courts across the U.S., Board of Immigration Appeals, and U.S. Department of State offices around the world. From her extensive caseload over the years, she is adept at spotting issues and guiding clients through removal (“deportation”) defense, asylum, benefits under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), U visas, I-601A provisional hardship waivers and I-601 hardship waivers, adjustment of status to permanent resident (“green card”), naturalization (“citizenship”), and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

In 2020, Eyzuri earned her juris doctor degree from Chicago-Kent College of Law. While in law school, Eyzuri was awarded CALI Excellence for the Future Awards as the top student in courses on Legal Writing for Immigration and Nationality Law and National Security Law and was recognized in the Dean’s Honors List several times. She also excelled in the immigration law courses offered at Chicago-Kent, earned an externship at the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), and was an active officer of the Chicago-Kent Chapters of the ACLU, National Lawyers Guild, and Immigration Law Society. Of note, Eyzuri was among a small group of law students selected to travel to Dilley, Texas for the CARA Pro Bono Project in 2019 to assist asylum seekers in need of legal help at the U.S. southern border. With such valuable firsthand experience helping immigrants, Eyzuri's resolve to be a strong immigration advocate solidified. As an attorney, she provides clients with the thoughtful, effective legal representation they deserve. Prior to law school, Eyzuri graduated from Roosevelt University with a Master of Arts in Sociology (2013) and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science (2010). She is a native Spanish speaker and enjoys giving back to the community through her volunteer work with local nonprofits.

  • Thanks to Robert’s expertise, we are very happy campers now, ...

    “We were referred to Mr. Milla by our previous attorney, who felt that our case had ‘hit the wall.’ In our opinion, R. Milla was the best thing that happened to our case! After over three years filled with nothing but frustration, we’ve asked for Robert’s help. Our case was based on marriage to US citizen and had some roadblocks along the way, but thanks to Robert’s expertise, we are very happy campers now, planning our first vacation abroad!”

  • The BEST in Chicago Town!

    “I met a few lawyers for my Citizenship / N400 filing. My case was complicated and most of the lawyers I met were willing to do it but didn't give me the confidence that will go through. Finally I met Robert, who explained every single detail, chances of approval and course of action in case of a denial and how to proceed. Right then and there, i decided I wanted to go with him....Thank You Robert for all the help and for attending the interview with me...Decision was made in 30 days and I'm waiting to attend the Oath Ceremony now... Thank You!!”

  • The Best Lawyer Ever!

    “I had problems bringing my wife back to US. Couple different lawyers promised to help but just wasted my money and time. Robert Milla told me upfront what we need to do and finally my wife is back. The Best Lawyer Ever! Result: Hardship waiver application approved (misrepresentation) and immigrant visa granted for permanent resident status (“green card”)”

  • We strongly recommend Robert

    “My wife and I hired Robert to handle my wife's greencard process while I was busy studying an MBA and could not dedicate much time to the process. We consulted with other lawyers and decided to go with Robert because he was very direct in his answers, gave honest and knowledgeable advice and because from day one he provided first class support and clarity on what the process would be like. My wife benefited greatly from his calmed demeanor and openness to quickly answer our questions and accommodate solutions for our case. We strongly recommend Robert, you will find a lawyer you can trust and that will help and guide your throughout every step of the process.”

    “I was so impressed by Robert from the start with my initial consultation - in fact, he answered all of the questions I had brought! In all my work with Robert, he was extremely professional, and took the extra time when he could tell I needed some reassurances. He was always willing to talk through my worries or hypothetical scenarios, and made sure to walk me through each step in great detail. Robert and his team are truly advocates and partners with you. I am so pleased with his outstanding service and he has my greatest endorsement!”

  • Impressive work and professionalism.

    “My husband and I had a very complicated I601 and I212 waiver case and had to hire an attorney no matter what. We searched online for weeks trying to find the best one since we were living in Costa Rica and wanted an attorney from Chicago. We hired Robert after reading his impressive curriculum and experience, plus he did not have any issues with the bar. I am a Costa Rican citizen married to a USC. All of our communication was done over the phone and email but that didn't make it less personal. I am a complete "worrier", I worry about every single thing that can go wrong and I ask a ton of questions. He was always happy to answer them in a timely manner. With Robert's guidance and expertise we were able to put together a very strong argument as to why my husband couldn't live in Costa Rica and why he needed me with him. Although this is the truth, it is extremely hard to know how to accurately prove this to USCIS, you really have to know how the waiver process works and doing it without a responsible and honest lawyer is not what would recommend to ANYONE. Robert helped us file the waiver and it was approved today, November 21st 2013!!! I WOULD ABSOLUTELY, HANDS DOWN recommend Attorney Robert Milla for any immigration matter, he knows what he is doing and has the experience needed to win cases. My husband and I will be forever thankful to Robert for bringing us together again”
