I needed help with a complicated immigration case for my family (parents-in-law and myself). Robert was very knowledgeable, culturally sensitive and courteous. He is very easy to deal with and seems to be a great person overall. I definitely recommend him to anyone who is seeking help with obtaining a green card.
I heard about Robert from a good friend of mine when I was looking for the best attorney that I could afford to take good care of my case.
Robert'd been so great for the whole entire process and we really appreciate his effort and knowledge. He made everything stress-free.
I have already absolutely recommending Robert to my friends and any future client who might need his representation in fixing their legal status.
Once again, I really appreciated his legal assistance in getting my permanent residency status.
Hi everyone! I had appointment with Mr. Milla recently. I needed a legal opinion on filing for my naturalization. I was quite worried and had a lot of questions on my mind regarding the process and my case was not a normal one. I called in for a free consultation and I got a quick reply from them. After my consultation with Mr. Milla, I felt he was professional and had good immigration knowledge. I took a lot of his time with my questions, but he was very patient with me and was a very good listener. He heard my story and answered all my questions. He was friendly and I felt like he gave me a very honest legal opinion on my case. Walking out, I was glad I had this consultation with him! Thank you Mr. Milla!
Robert is one of the best and most trustworthy attorneys I have ever met or worked with.
Before contracting him to work on our successful H1-B petition, our firm researched 17 different attorneys in Chicago and in Wisconsin, and we interviewed 4. 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.
I spent quite a few months looking for an asylum lawyer. I probably talked to more than 10 lawyers and decided to hire Mr. Milla,
Milla made my application process simple and easy. He is very knowlegable and helpful, I strongly recommend him to anyone I know.
Now, a few weeks later, I have my asylum granted. Yaaay! :)
I had been to Mr Milla,s office in 2009 when was located at S Michigan ave for consultation regarding a denial appeal in my case which had been since 2006 without any action from USCIS .Mr Milla told me what steps I should take and if USCIS keeps ignoring ,then I could file another petition ,I was not convinced at that time and hired other Attorneys, but waisted too much money without a result , then I came back to Mr Milla and filed a petition in 2013 and was approved two months ago.I,m so happy and proud that I was represented by Mr Milla. Thanks very much to him
Robert Milla has been our attorney for years as my wife and I waited and waited for DOMA to be struck down and he was right there the minute it happened to represent us in attaining her Permanent Resident Status. We couldn’t be happier with Robert's expertise, availability to talk with us and answer all our questions and skillfully represent us throughout the past few years of this important process. I highly recommend him to any family with immigration issues. He is very knowledgeable and accessible to his clients.
Robert is a skilled lawyer, he has helped me in filing the change of status from visitors visa to student visa. I strongly recommend him for all immigration matters. He is very kind, humble and down to earth and helping.
First let me start by saying THANK YOU doesn't quite cover it. Robert is an exceptional attorney!
I am someone who was brought to this country as a child and had been struggling with legal status and finding a truly trustworthy lawyer for years. I got married 7 years ago and a couple years later my husband and I decided to try to get help. I met with numerous lawyers some of which suggested that I do some really sketchy things, like get my self detained and ask to speak to a Judge. Well to make the story shorter, Robert was the only lawyer we spoke to a few years ago who was truly honest with us about my chances of leaving the country and being approved for the extreme hardship pardon. Per his advice we decided to first get my DACA approved, which we did successfully. He pays attention to the details. We received no further request for evidence, & it was all over in 2 months. He made us feel very comfortable with the entire process and I was not as intimidated, as I had been in the past with other lawyers that I had worked with. He was always responsive by email or phone and kept us well-informed. Which helped manage any anxiety we might have otherwise had. For the first time in my 26 years in this country I have some normality to my life! With DACA secured, next I look forward to working with Robert on our marriage case and becoming a permanent resident! I know I can trust Robert to guide us through whatever is needed. I highly recommend Robert Milla to any one seeking an immigration attorney. I plan on passing his name along to any family, or friends who may need his services in the future!
Thank you Robert!
I had a consultation with Robert in regards to an RFE for an I-571 for my wife. Based on my experience, I can confidently state that Robert is one of the most genuine, caring, and professional attorneys I've ever met. His positive demeanor, attention to detail, and amazing comunnication skills made a huge difference in my understanding and approach to the case. Robert's advice and consultation proved to be of tremendous help to us and I would not hesitate to recommend his highly valuable services to anyone.
