  • Highly recommend!

    “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 approved and I received my Green Card in just a few months. Robert was always up-front and honest about the possible outcome, answered all our never-ending questions and addressed all concerns. The phone calls and e-mail communications were always answered in a timely and professional manner. 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! Result: Application for adjustment of status to permanent resident (“green card”) approved after filing a mandamus action in federal court for an unreasonable delay”

  • 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.”

  • 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.”

  • 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!!”

  • Would have been lost without them!

    “Fantastic firm and most notably my wonderful attorney Justin Hoefflicker. He was clear and easy to understand, helpful and able to think outside the box to answer our questions and various what if scenarios. We would have been lost without him deciphering the response letters from the USCIS. Thank you Justin!”

  • Robert is more then a attorney, he becomes a friend through ...

    “My husband and I have been working with Robert for many years and he has always been patient with us and will only do thing if were comfortable with them. He is very thorough and takes his time in explaining things, we could have not had a better attorney to assist us on my husband petition. He truly was blessing and we would recommend him to anyone!”

  • Successful N-400 While Working Abroad

    “One cannot go wrong with Robert! He is a great listener, who understood my unique immigration situation very quickly and guided me throughout the process. He helped me apply for N-400 with some tricky background. Robert prepared me for the interview and gave me the confidence I needed for the interview, which resulted in a smooth approval of my N-400. I highly recommend him for all your immigration needs. I am now seeking his advice for my other family members.”

  • 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.”
