  • Highly recommended!

    “My wife and I used Robert Milla as our attorney to file for my wife's green card (through marriage). He was careful, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive (much better than a previous immigration attorney we hired for a different matter). Everything went smoothly with our application and interview, and my wife now has her green card! Highly recommended!”

  • THANK YOU doesn't quite cover it. - Exceptional, trustworthy ...

    “Result: DACA and employment authorization granted First let me start by saying THANK YOU doesn't quite cover it. Robert is an exceptional attorney! He pays attention to the details. We received no further request for evidence, & it was all over in 2 months. He made us feel very comfortable with the entire process and I was not as intimidated, as I had been in the past with other lawyers that I had worked with. He was always responsive by email or phone and kept us well-informed. Which helped manage any anxiety we might have otherwise had. For the first time in my 26 years in this country I have some normality to my life! With DACA secured, next I look forward to working with Robert on our marriage case and becoming a permanent resident! I know I can trust Robert to guide us through whatever is needed. I highly recommend Robert Milla to any one seeking an immigration attorney. I plan on passing his name along to any family, or friends who may need his services in the future! Thank you Robert!”

  • 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”

  • Complicated N400 case!

    “I found Milla & Associates through Avvo as he had great ratings and reviews by previous clients. I had a fairly complicated case of immigration for naturalization N400) through a spouse as I had been out of the country for very large chunks of time. Robert was an excellent guide in terms of how to approach the case and what documents to include/exclude in order to make my case stronger. He was thorough with his research and very well acquainted with the whole process. Despite my super complicated case, he put it forward in such a way that it was a smooth approval. He made our immigration journey stress free and having him next to me at my interview made me feel confident since he is very competent! I highly highly recommend him for any immigration law cases”

  • Personal immigration lawyer

    “Justin is my goto immigration lawyer. I came here as a student and Justin handled my H1B case couple of years ago. Although Trump administration was pushing back on many of the cases with RFEs, Justin gave a strongly worded response back and got me, my H1B. Last year, fortunately I met my now wife and after we got married, Justin handled our green card processing with ease and seamlessly. He has many contacts in the Immigration office, which made even more easier and hospitable for my interview. He was available throughout the interview and even helped on a couple difficult questions in between the interview. Throughout the processing, I found Justin highly organized and great understanding of the domain. He is very current with the news and changes to immigration laws and if he doesn't have answer then, you can expect an email to follow up with answers. I highly recommend Justin as a personal immigration lawyer.”

  • Rest assured, Robert will be my choice!

    “I was recommended to Mr. Milla by a friend of mine who used him for her permanent residency application as well. Both my husband were touched by the fact that Robert took the time to get to know us during our first meeting with him, before we began the application process. Rest assured, Robert will be my choice as I go to apply for my citizenship in the next few years!”
