  • Highly recommended!

    “My wife and I used Robert Milla as our attorney to file for my wife's green card (through marriage). He was careful, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive (much better than a previous immigration attorney we hired for a different matter). Everything went smoothly with our application and interview, and my wife now has her green card! Highly recommended!”

  • 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.”

  • One of the best Lawyer in Chicago

    “I heard about this lawyer from one of my classmate. He was saved from being deported by Mr. Milla and that's when I finalized him to handle my case of filing and getting papers through my spouse. Mr. Milla handled all the paperwork and all I had to do is just sign the papers and my filing was done with such an ease. He was there with us in our interview too and more than myself I trusted his decisions and instincts and I was correct. I was really lucky that my friend recommended him to me and I am sure you will feel the same ones u successfully finish your case with him. Result: Application for adjustment of status to permanent resident (“green card”) approved”

  • 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”

  • Successful case for marriage-based green card

    “Milla & Associates delivers an incredible quality of legal representation and it was an absolute pleasure to work with Robert Milla, Tatiana Alonso, and their team. My husband and I entrusted them with my adjustment of status and green card application. Our case was handled very efficiently, they answered our questions at every stage and kept us informed of the next steps and developments throughout the process. Not only that, Robert is highly experienced and has an incredible understanding of immigration law on top of being genuine, personable and transparent. It is really hard to be able to find a good attorney that genuinely cares about the case, he is trustworthy, and I can tell that he does his work with his heart. My adjustment of status/green card was approved within a week from the interview, and I received my conditional green card in the mail a few days after receiving the approval notice. Robert and his team definitely made the entire process seamless. I would strongly recommend Robert Milla for anyone who is looking for a great immigration attorney and to be put in the best position possible with obtaining a green card. Thank you, Robert, for making my husband and I feel at ease as we navigated through uncharted waters. We are so grateful for you!”
