  • 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.”

  • Very satisfied, i have other petitions too, the fight is not ...

    “At first i was curious of what Lawyers (in general) do to make their income and i wasn't impressed until i see the result, that is just being me (Marine Vet). I learned that he is half Filipino, but that didn't change my opinion about lawyers even if he is a son of a fellow Marine Vet. With his high caliber of knowledge in/on immigration law, he walks and talks with the mission on his every foot steps. I highly recommend him to every Filipino and Military Veterans. I have been petitioning my other siblings ever since my father passed away and i will have to call him again to save my day to bring my family here in USA just like what my father wants.”

  • Robert has been absolutely amazing!

    “Robert has been absolutely amazing! My husband and I used his services for our marriage based green card application. Our case was not complicated, but we are so happy we hired Robert. He was nothing but helpful and would always make time to schedule a meeting with us or jump on the phone to guide us through the process and answer our (many) questions. On top of him being friendly and approachable, he knows the immigration law inside out. We can not recommend Robert enough to anyone applying for a marriage based permanent residence.”

  • The best layer in Chicago!

    “No words can describe what Robert Milla did for me! My case was complicated and before I found Robert I went from door to door …. getting more and more frustrating and hopeless! Most of the law firm gave me no chance!Others asked way more money then Robert …with really low posibility of wining! He was not only knowledgeable, professional, but also very approachable making the whole process much less stressful. Dealing with legal issues could be super nerve-racking, and I was very glad that Robert helped me with understanding my situation and evaluating all the options in the easiest way possible. I knew I was in good hands. Before Robert I had a really bad expirienc with some other attorney which not cost me a lot but also worsened my situation !Thats why you really should do your resurce on finding a good lawyer you can trust ! Robert Milla is 100% one of them ! I definitely recommend Robert Milla to anyone who needs legal assistance regarding immigration law. Robert You saved my LIFE! I can’t THANK YOU enough!”

  • 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!”

  • 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!”
