It is with profound sorrow that we announce the untimely passing of our founder and Senior Partner Robert L. Reeves. Attorney Reeves began practicing law thirty-five years ago. For over three and ½ decades, he never stopped fighting for the rights of immigrants.

The firm that began as the Law Offices of Robert L. Reeves evolved to Reeves & Associates and then to its current incarnation of Reeves Miller Zhang & Diza (RMZD). Through the name changes, one thing never changed. The firm’s goal was and remains to provide the best legal services possible at an affordable price to the members of the immigrant community.

While his death was absolutely unexpected, Attorney Reeves did anticipate that he would retire in the not-distant future. He took steps to ensure that the firm would continue to pursue his goals by hiring talented, knowledgeable and experienced attorneys and support staff. Over the course of the last decade, the firm evolved into a partnership. Attorneys/Partners Nancy E. Miller, May Zhang, Flomy Diza, Devin Connolly and Eric Welsh, all of whom are Certified by the State Bar of California as Specialists in Immigration & Nationality Law, were personally mentored by Attorney Reeves and shared his visions for the firm. We worked together on the Filipino War-Veteran cases, the Child Status Protection Act cases and so many others. We stand ready to continue to pursue the vision of helping those in need of legal assistance in the immigrant community.

RMZD has lost an amazing attorney, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Attorney Reeves have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. He leaves behind a company that his vision built and that he would want to continue. His spirit will forever be the foundation of RMZD.

No words can adequately express our sadness at Attorney Reeves’ passing or our gratitude for the opportunity to know him and work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.

The business will carry on under the same name and at the same premises and on exactly the same lines as before. We thank you for the trust that you have placed in us in allowing us to help you resolve your immigration issues in the past. We look forward to continuing to help you and your families lawfully unite in the United States over the course of many years to come.
