  • 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!”

  • Mr. Robert is an amazing, humble and extremely knowledgeable ...

    “Words just cannot express how grateful I'm to Robert Milla for all his efforts and dedication towards my case. It was a very complicated case and I had consulted a lot of attorneys in Chicago who were just not that confident in proceeding with my case. Then I met Robert and his knowledge and determination showed me light when I was almost about to give up. He was confident and Knowledgeable and did a meticulous job with my case especially when ​I had very less time to apply. I'm so relieved and happy that I got my green card within a week of the interview. Mr Robert is an amazing, humble and extremely knowledgeable attorney. He gives a lot of attention to detail. I'll never forget that he helped me when I was most in need of help. It was easy to work with ​Robert and legal assistant Maria. They made the process very smooth and kept me informed throughout the process.​ ​I couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable, friendly, and courteous attorney.​ ​I appreciate His genuineness and humbleness. I highly recommend him for all immigration needs and I will definitely use your services again in future.”

  • Rest assured, Robert will be my choice!

    “I was recommended to Mr. Milla by a friend of mine who used him for her permanent residency application as well. Both my husband were touched by the fact that Robert took the time to get to know us during our first meeting with him, before we began the application process. Rest assured, Robert will be my choice as I go to apply for my citizenship in the next few years!”

  • 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”

  • David was very sweet and we saw that they really wanted to help we didn’t make us feel less of a person we were treated with respect and understanding.

    “My name is Katrina and my husband is Alfonso we were coming back from Mexico after seeing our family for the first time in over 16 years. In our arrival back to Chicago my husband was detained and was taken to a room leaving our 2 daughters and myself with no answers no information nothing, for 2& half hours waiting, that I can say was a very scary and upsetting time for us. Once we came together again they just gave us a paper saying we had to appear at immigration and had no idea what they needed or what to do we were in the dark. I looked up lawyers and found who I can call my family David Mucci and Robert Milla they worked with us told us what we had todo also stood by our side every step of the way answered every question and concerns we had. David was very sweet and we saw that they really wanted to help we didn’t make us feel less of a person we were treated with respect and understanding. I would recommend them to anyone who is ever in a situation like ours because I know that they will give 120% , we went to our immigration date and left with a great result we had everything they needed and more and my husband was ok to travel again it was the best feeling ever to leave knowing everything is ok now. I can’t thank them enough for there hard work and dedication to my family David was an awesome and amazing layer and I would call him to be by our side again and again .”

  • Great attorney and a great human being!

    “Robert is one of the best and most trustworthy attorneys I have ever met or worked with. What separates Robert from others is his commitment to winning and his willingness to fight for you, regardless of how hard it might get or how long it takes. He does not use his law degree or the severity of a case to intimidate you or, unlike some, he does not use fear as a way of getting you to hire him. Instead, you can sense from the get-go that he does this as a matter of calling: he wants to help people win their immigration battles because it is the right thing to do. He is down to earth, relatable, yet very effective. His ability to use language seamlessly to drive a point home was quite remarkable and refreshing to see. He is tactful, but does not shy away from stating the facts aggressively and in a manner that makes the arguments stick. This is not something many attorneys know how to do. He was also very responsive and very sensitive to avoid misunderstandings in any regard. He asked and listened to the feedback and was not focused on anything else but to get the job done--which is both rare and extraordinary. He was also very flexible with payments and the entire process. Robert is a down to earth, caring guy and a very, very competent attorney who will take care of you. We hope to work with him again in the future and would strongly recommend him to you, as well.”

  • We highly recommend Atty Robert Milla and Associates.

    “We were married in 2009 and got denied the first time it was filed. We got a lawyer to help us and it took years of waiting and nothing came out of it. Until my wife found Atty Robert Milla on the internet and with his very exceptional and successful work on immigration based cases, we decided to asked him to represent us . He told us what documents we need to re submit to follow up the case and waited for a decision. And finally my wife got her green card before Christmas this year exactly 8 years after we first filed it but Atty Robert Milla was able to get it for us , when we thought it was a hopeless case. We are so happy and very grateful for Atty Robert Milla for all the help and understanding and patience to our never ending questions and also to his paralegal Stylvia . Thank you very much. More power.”

  • Complicated N400 case!

    “I found Milla & Associates through Avvo as he had great ratings and reviews by previous clients. I had a fairly complicated case of immigration for naturalization N400) through a spouse as I had been out of the country for very large chunks of time. Robert was an excellent guide in terms of how to approach the case and what documents to include/exclude in order to make my case stronger. He was thorough with his research and very well acquainted with the whole process. Despite my super complicated case, he put it forward in such a way that it was a smooth approval. He made our immigration journey stress free and having him next to me at my interview made me feel confident since he is very competent! I highly highly recommend him for any immigration law cases”
