Case Summary:

Just 6 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of an electrical engineering doctoral student in California, the USCIS approved his case. This prompt adjudication was a result of Premium Processing (PP), a paid service offered by the USCIS which allows petitioners to have action taken on their cases within 15 calendar days. This expeditious approval served as a testimonial to our firm’s efforts in helping every client obtain petition approval. These are some of the main areas we focused on while building this particular client’s EB-1A petition:

  1. A total of 6 recommendation letters signed by other experts in the field were presented in order to establish his case. According to one of the experts: “Having become familiar with his research, I can state without hesitation that it has had a noticeable impact on the field of electrical engineering… all of these credentials establish [Client] as a top luminary in his field, truly distinguishing him from his peers.”
  1. At the time of filing, our client had already published 2 journal articles and a book chapter, an impressive achievement for a doctoral student. This strengthened his case to a great extent.
  1. We highlighted the 128 times his work had been cited by his peers and the 15 reviews he had conducted for high impact scientific journals.
  1. Our client’s specialized research on the design and demonstration of semiconductor devices for high-performance computing systems was found to be significant in addressing the United States’ understanding of interconnect technologies and neuromorphic computing. The extensive body of research undoubtedly served as a strong foundation for our client’s case.

We thank our client for working with us and congratulate him for securing an EB-1A petition approval. Furthermore, we wish him well as he progresses the field of electrical engineering in the United States.
