  • 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!!”

  • 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.”
