After graduating from law school in 1982, Mila founded the Law Office of Mila Gloria Novak in Melrose Park.
As one of the few bilingual attorneys in the Chicago area early on, speaking Spanish and English, Mila was able to establish herself as a trustworthy and compassionate attorney committed to serving her primarily Spanish-speaking clientele.
