  • HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Amazing service and very good to work with!

    “I am a US citizen. In 2017 June I planned to file for my mother’s permanent residency. At that time my mother was in US on B2 ( visitor visa). I googled for best immigration attorney in Chicago -Milla & Associates popped up! Let me tell you, Robert and his team lived up to the reviews!!! We started with talking to Robert and he provided hours worth of advise to file permanent residency for my mother. Robert was very patient and answered all our questions and spotted an issue with our case right away. He gave us the option to file myself or to go via him. I went with option of filing myself hoping the issue he spotted won’t become a trouble. Even after deciding to file myself, I had a few follow up questions which he answered over the phone. 4 months later we got a NOID( notice of intent to deny) for the same reason Robert spotted in the first place. We hired him for Respone to NOID. It was such a stressful time preparing and providing supporting documents for the rebuttal response within 30 days. Robert and his team guided what docs needed to be prepared and answered our questions promptly, and was ready to help with any queries and follow up questions. Robert prepared a very strong rebuttal response to the NOID and sent on time. During the period of waiting for an answer from USCIS, he promptly answered my concerns on renewing EAD for my mother. Robert always had a very specific, accurate and clear answer to any queries. And many months later we received an RFE for response to NOID( which in itself is a BIG relief) as NOID was off the plate and USCIS was giving us one more chance. Robert and his team again stepped up to the challenge and gave very specific detailed guidance to prepare the right set of documents and verified and sent them on time. And in September we got the best news we were praying and hoping to hear for the last 2 years, my mother’s Permanent Residency is approved!!! We are very grateful to God and thankful to Robert and his team! We highly recommend Milla and Associates!!! Sincerely, Anna and Dan H.”

  • Knowledgeable and confident

    “Robert worked on my case that was hopeless to be solved for the past 8 years, spending a huge amount of money with other lawyers. Robert said it from the beginning and told me what would it take to get this done. Despite my doubts, Robert stayed consistent with his answers and confident with the outcomes. Finally, I got an approval letter from USCIS for my wife. Thank you Robert for everything you have done for me!”

  • Excellent Lawyer!!

    “It was a great opportunity for having Robert Milla as my lawyer in adjusting my immigration status. I highly recommend him!! I consulted few lawyers before but when the first time I met Robert, I felt so comfortable and decided to hire him right away. I am really thankful and very satisfied with his services. Until now I still can't believe that it's not even a week after the interview, I got my Green Card so quickly! I will definitely continue my business with him until I get my citizenship and to help out my family to get here in the US. And also his assistant, Maria did a great job on helping me and answering all my questions regarding my case.”

    “Result: Application for adjustment of status to permanent resident (“green card”) approved Robert Milla has been our attorney for years as my wife and I waited and waited for DOMA to be struck down and he was right there the minute it happened to represent us in attaining her Permanent Resident Status. We couldn’t be happier with Robert's expertise, availability to talk with us and answer all our questions and skillfully represent us throughout the past few years of this important process. I highly recommend him to any family with immigration issues. He is very knowledgeable and accessible to his clients.”

  • 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”

  • 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!!”
