I have been an immigration attorney since 2006, and am the founding attorney of Milla & Associates, LLC, an immigration firm dedicated to serving immigrant communities. My focus on immigration law has included family and employment cases, as well as removal defense, through which I have earned approvals for asylum, cancellation of removal, and adjustment of status. My work on applications for provisional waivers and standard waivers of inadmissiblity has earned approvals for clients worldwide, including for countries in Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Asia. I have developed a federal litigation practice and have successfully represented clients in federal court actions, including mandamus delay cases and challenges to improperly denied immigration applications.
As an adjunct professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology-Chicago Kent College of Law, I teach a legal writing course that I designed to focus on unique issues of immigration law. I am an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, serving as the Vice-Chair of the Chicago Chapter Litigation Committee. Over the years I have been an invited speaker on immigration reform, policy, and litigation.
My personal background has given me great appreciation for the immigrant experience and perspective. My mother immigrated to the United States from the Philippines as a graduate student, and my father was born into impoverished circumstances in Brooklyn, New York to Spanish and Italian immigrant parents, to eventually serve in the United States Marine Corps and New York City Police Department. With such a foundation, I was raised to admire the immigrant experience and dream. While my background is unique to me, I have always found great similarities to my clients. I have created my own immigrant stories when I spent extensive time abroad, receiving my Master's degree in Auckland, New Zealand; working in Niigata, Japan; and completing a legal internship in Beijing, China. My wife, also an attorney, is a first-generation Indian-American, and together we have two children.
