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.

Robert Milla helped me with my immigration status. Throughout the whole process he was very thorough. 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. I recommend Milla law because the services that he provides are very helpful and with hid vast knowledge of the law he will make sure the experience one goes through is as painless as possible. 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.

I highly recommend Robert Milla. 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. Throughout the process, Robert was very helpful answering any questions we had and educating us on our legal rights. I was a nervous wreck on the day of my permanent residency interview, and Robert put all my fears at ease by assuring me that I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Rest assured, Robert will be my choice as I go to apply for my citizenship in the next few years!

I hired attorney Robert Milla to file for my papers here in Chicago. I waited for over 20 years to apply for my green card. Overall, the service was outstanding. He took the time to answer all my questions, he was honest about what to expect and there were no hidden charges for his services. I paid one flat fee for his services and I did not have to pay everything upfront. My case was approved in less than 4 months. I recommend him for immigration services and I have recommended one friend and my cousin and they both had the same experience that I did.

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.
Robert was always ready to answer all of our questions, always gave us the correct time frames for each process (he said my kind of process could take up to a 1.5 years and that's exactly what happened), guided us through the whole ordeal and basically just told us which documents to provide and what fees to pay. Everything always came with a receipt either from him for professional services or the immigration fees we paid.
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. And if I was still asking questions after he was still answering them! Always with great attitude.
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 owe my happiness to Jesus Christ and Robert, along with all the family members who supported us through the pain and suffering my husband and I endured this past year and a half.
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. You can contact me if you need further proof.
Paula and Jacob

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.

I had problems bringing my wife back to US. Couple different lawyers promised to help but just waisted my money and time. Robert Milla told me upfront what we need to do and finally my wife is back. The Best Lawyer Ever!
