  • Excellent Service Better Attorney

    “Robert made sure I understood everything that was going on ad answered all my questions to the best of his knowledge. Before going to Robert for my immigration status, I looked around but other attorneys were not nearly as insightful or helpful as Robert. Robert always made sure that I was prepared for everything that I was going to through. For the interview he prepared me so well that I was not nervous when talking to the officers. Robert made sure I was aware of all the possible outcomes when I acquired his services. Robert made sure that I had the best experience possible for the trials that I was going to face with the immigration process. Result: Form I-751 Petition with waiver of joint filing (good faith marriage that ended in divorce) approved”

  • Thank you so much

    “I thank God for put Robert on my way. I had a complicated VAWA case due to domestic violence (DV), I had others immigration attorneys opinions where they did not give me much hopes because my short marriage. I got Robert's information from a DV organization, got a free consultation and with not doubt I hired him. He is an excellent attorney, knows what he is doing and how to put your case on the right path. As I mentioned my case was complicated and with God's help, Robert's made it easier. My DV case was approved with no inconvenience and got my interview 6 months after my approval, he prepared me one week before my interview and got me ready for the best and the worst scenario. Thank God in my interview I got approved on the spot and after a week I got my green card. Another important thing is that he is affordable, he has a huge heart and always answered my questions when I had any. I also want to thank his receptionist Sylvia, she was so kind and assisted me during my process after my assistant Maria was gone. If you need an attorney with experience, very reasonable price but with quality and compassion then Robert is the one you need.”

  • The best legal group I've ever had the pleasure of working with in my life.

    “Justin Hoefflicker and his team went above and beyond to help us every step of the way. We are a small digital health startup, and without Justin, our company would potentially not be able to continue operations. He helped us secure an H1B visa for our Technical Co-Founder, and went above and beyond through preparation of materials, explaining the process, answering a million follow-up questions (that's an understatement), taking the time to meet and discuss contingencies when he absolutely didn't have to, helping us file a complete Request-for-Evidence (RFE) and not charging us for the additional work, and ultimately, helping us secure the H1B in the end. Even if we hadn't gotten the H1B, I'd still be submitting this review as it's fully merited and Milla & Associates is by far the best legal group I've ever worked with. They're honest, they actually care, they do great legal work at appropriate rates, they actually follow through, they get everything done on time, and they go above and beyond to make sure expectations are set correctly in what can be a very difficult and touchy legal-sphere (immigration). I am extremely grateful for having had the opportunity to work with them, and I wish we had a similar experience with every legal group we had to work with. Thank you Justin and team.”

  • 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!”

  • 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!”

  • HIGHLY RECOMMEND! EXCELLENT SERVICE!!!!

    “I highly recommend Milla & Associates LLC for all immigration cases. Attorney Robert Milla and Attorney Lauren McGee were always available to answer my questions. The overall staff was great! If my assistant wasn't available to answer my questions the receptionist was always so kind to answer my question. I had a marriage based case which was approved the same week I had the interview. I will definitely use their services again for my citizenship case!”

  • AMAZING DOWN TO EARTH PROFESSIONAL

    “My wife Luiza and I were considering filing our marriage petition on our own, but after careful consideration decided to hire an attorney. We were referred to Robert and could have have been more pleased. It was a stressful time for both of us as our petition progressed, and Robert did an excellent job of explaining the process. Robert was friendly, calming, and knowledgeable. Having worked in the immigration field for over 5 years, I was very impressed with Robert's demeanor and ability to connect with Luiza and I. We could not thank him enough, and will be recommending him to any of our network contacts. Thanks again, Robert! Ben and Luiza”
