I enjoy working one-on-one with my clients. My office is the neighborhood of West Seattle, so it has a different feel then a downtown office. I take pride in providing not only great legal advice but also great customer service to my clients. My focus is on family-based immigration (green cards), DACA, VAWA, Petitions to Remove Conditions on Residence, U.S. citizenship, waivers and immigrant visa processing.

We Are Stunned By The Results of Our Case
Thanks to Sylvia for her passion and fierce approach for her clients. You won't believe this but we have been kicked out of Attorney's offices, money kept, and others said go back to your country to file this case. The nature of our case inadvertently supported uscis violations in the past for the petitioner but if you listened you will know the petitioner was innocent, despite. Sylvia listened, believed us and decided to help. The best part was that she didn't charge extra, and she is most affordable we found in Seattle, WA. Ultimately, in about 6mos, our long (5yrs) search to get green card assistance stopped with Sylvia. What a compassionate Attorney? Please, if you want to hear more from her just email me at [email protected]. I highly recommend her to ANYONE who needs immigration at an affordable charge - up to 50% market prices in Seattle.

Inteligente y digna de confianza
Sylvia Miller me ha ayudado en el largo y complicado proceso de obtenerle papeles (la green card) a mi esposa. Sylvia primero llegó a ser nuestra abogado en el 2012, cuando nos preparo la petición familiar (I-130). Fuimos aprobados rápidamente gracias a su trabajo excepcional y su atención a los detalles. Mi esposa entró al país sin inspección cuando era niña, por lo que nuestro siguiente paso fue solicitar el perdon del I-601A Waiver con el proceso consular en Ciudad Juárez, México. Esperamos unos meses hasta que el momento fue adecuado para nosotros, y seguimos con el perdon I-601A en 2014. Habíamos tenido mucho miedo de tener que pasar por este proceso, pero las explicaciones iformatives de Sylvia con cada paso y apoyo ayudó a aliviar nuestras mentes. Ella sabe lo que está haciendo y es meticulosa en su trabajo. Desde el momento en que le enviamos nuestro paquete de perdon I-601A a conseguir la aprobación, fue 3 meses! La entrevista para la visa de mi mujer fue 2 meses después (en febrero de 2015). Cuando nos fuimos a México, estábamos de vuelta en los EE.UU. (mi esposa finalmente legalmente) después de 10 días! Estamos muy contentos con la manera profesional y eficiente de Sylvia. Ella explica todo en detalle y se asegura de responder a sus preguntas. Ella es muy buena con la comunicación y al mantenerse en contacto con usted. El proceso de inmigración no es barato. Sylvia te dice un precio, y es lo que te cobra-sin sorpresas. Sus precios son muy justos y su calidad de trabajo es excepcional. Creo que la razón por la que Sylvia tiene tanto éxito es que ella tiene corazón y ella realmente se preocupa por sus clientes. Si usted está buscando un abogado honesto y asequible que hace un trabajo excepcional, no busques más!

Knowledgeable and Trustworthy
Sylvia Miller has helped me in the long and complicated process of obtaining my wife’s green card. Sylvia first became our lawyer in 2012 when we filed a family petition (I-130). We were quickly approved thanks to her exceptional work and attention to detail. My wife entered the country without inspection when she was a child, so our next step was to apply for the I-601A Waiver with consular processing in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. We waited a few months until the timing was right for us, and we moved forward with the I-601A Waiver in 2014. We had been very scared of having to go through this process, but Sylvia’s straightforward explanations, step-by-step guidance and support helped to ease our minds. She knows what she’s doing and is meticulous in her work. From the moment we sent our waiver packet to getting approval, it was 3 months! My wife’s visa interview was 2 months later (in February 2015). When we left to Mexico, we were back in the US (my wife finally legally) after 10 days! We are very happy with how professional and knowledgeable she is. She explains everything in detail and makes sure to answer your questions. She is great with communicating and keeping in touch with you. The immigration process isn't cheap. Sylvia’s flat-rate fees make her stand out among other immigration lawyers. Her fees are fair and her quality of work is outstanding. I think that the reason why Sylvia is so successful is that she has heart and she genuinely cares for her clients. If you are looking for an honest and affordable lawyer who does exceptional work, look no further!

Swift and with ease. Glad I found her.
Sylvia A Miller helped me with getting a work visa and then a green card during and after my marriage. She explained everything in great detail, which helped put our mind at ease. We were able to call or visit her office anytime even with short notice without a problem. She even called to check up on our progress of getting the documents required to file. Definitely feel that I got my moneys worth.

THE BEST! Most affordable immigration Attorney that money can buy. Being the way that I am, always on a budget, I like to shop around, and when it was time to find an attorney to help me with my Naturalization processes. Sylvia A. Miller, Exceled above the rest. Price, The very first thing that comes to mind when shopping and I have called around to dozens of places, and spent over $300 dollars on consultations never imagining that immigration help wound be so ridiculously expensive. I was at the point of giving up when I tried the last number on my list, Sylvia A. Miller 206-789-0200. She was kind courteous, Knowledgeable and most of all Affordable. We met and she explained my case to me step by step, in terms that the non-law school clients can understand. She was very thorough; she made sure everything was right the first time and perfect before submitting my case to the USCIS and as the results of that my case was successful  I would hire Sylvia Miller again, and would recommend her to anyone looking for THE BEST! Most affordable immigration Attorney.

An excellent immigration law attorney
Estoy muy contento de haber elegido a Sylvia como mi representante legal en el proceso de naturalización y ciudadanía. Sylvia me ha ayudado tanto con los procesos burocráticos como con la preparación a la entrevista y todo hubiese sido mas difícil sin su ayuda.

Amazing Attorney!
Sylvia helped my husband get his green card last year. I would recommend her to anyone. She is very responsible, always kept us well informed and quickly responded to our questions and concerns. She made the whole process very easy and our case was done less than a year.

A True Angel
Ms. Sylvia Miller is a very respectable person. She is very passionate about her work and her clients. My case was difficult and complicated. I went through numerous attorneys and all of them told me that my case was hopeless. Just when I lost all my faith I fund Sylvia through a mutual friend. She took my case with great humanity and compassion and needless to say she won. I still need her services and I greatly appreciate her knowledge and her punctuality. She is the best and I will always be very thankful for her.

One of the very few attorneys you can trust
I had very complicated cases in the immigration for about 10 years I have worked with several attorneys, in general, they are greedy and most of the time they create problems for you so they can make more money. Warren Buffet said do not ask a Barber if you need a haircut Sylvia Miller is different from most of the attorneys. She is honest, knowledgeable, trustful and she is always there for you.
