  • 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!”

  • 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.”

  • 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.”

  • 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.”

  • Great job guys!!!

    “My husband and I hired Robert to handle our marriage based residency case. We met with several attorneys. Robert was our last one. He was very patient and answered all of our questions. We didn't feel rushed at all. After we walked out of the consultation my husband and I looked at each and knew Robert was the one. This process can be complicated, but Robert and his team made it very simple. His legal assistant, Daniel, was a pleasure to work with. They were both very responsive, which is important in dealing with these matters. He prepared us for our final interview and everything turned out great! No problems, no issues. Great job guys!!!”

  • The Best Lawyer

    “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Atty. Robert Milla, Ms. Sylvia and the rest of the staff of Milla Law firm. The team was of great help in processing my papers and documents, from the application of my Green Card until the application of my U.S. Citizenship. Not to mention how patient Mr. Robert Milla was when answering my questions and paying attention into knotting all the loose ends to make sure that everything goes well for me to achieve the outcome I was aiming for. I would definitely recommend Robert Milla Law Firm not only for his compassion and empathetic demeanor in relating to his clients but also because of his undeniable skills in handling cases in immigration. His assistants are also commendable for being so helpful and attentive. Until now I'm still overwhelmed that I immediately got the schedule of my Oath Taking Ceremony few days after my interview for the application of my U.S. Citizenship. I have no regrets in seeking legal help and advice from this office, and I will definitely hire their service for the petition of my family.”

  • 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!”

  • Robert is extremely detail-oriented and personable

    “Robert handled our marriage based permanent residency case and it was successfully approved. When we had our consultation with him, he admitted to be a challenging case and was honest about the outcome being 50/50. Robert is very polite but firm in his communication. There's no room for misinterpretation and he gives clear instructions and recommendations as to what the next steps are, what documents to gather and in what format. He responds to emails very quickly, no matter what the question is. Our case was approved and we couldn't be more grateful for Robert's help. We highly recommend his services to anyone seeking legal advise as he is a trustworthy lawyer.”

    “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!”
