  • 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”

  • 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!”

  • Impressive work and professionalism.

    “My husband and I had a very complicated I601 and I212 waiver case and had to hire an attorney no matter what. We searched online for weeks trying to find the best one since we were living in Costa Rica and wanted an attorney from Chicago. We hired Robert after reading his impressive curriculum and experience, plus he did not have any issues with the bar. I am a Costa Rican citizen married to a USC. All of our communication was done over the phone and email but that didn't make it less personal. I am a complete "worrier", I worry about every single thing that can go wrong and I ask a ton of questions. He was always happy to answer them in a timely manner. With Robert's guidance and expertise we were able to put together a very strong argument as to why my husband couldn't live in Costa Rica and why he needed me with him. Although this is the truth, it is extremely hard to know how to accurately prove this to USCIS, you really have to know how the waiver process works and doing it without a responsible and honest lawyer is not what would recommend to ANYONE. Robert helped us file the waiver and it was approved today, November 21st 2013!!! I WOULD ABSOLUTELY, HANDS DOWN recommend Attorney Robert Milla for any immigration matter, he knows what he is doing and has the experience needed to win cases. My husband and I will be forever thankful to Robert for bringing us together again”

  • 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!”

  • 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”

  • 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.”

  • 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.”
