Success Stories: EB-1A Petition Approved by Texas Service Center for Chinese Postdoctoral Associate in Massachusetts in the Field of Biomedical Optics


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you so much for your help with my I-140.”

On March 9th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Associate in the Field of Biomedical Optics (Approval Notice).


General Field: Biomedical Optics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Associate

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: March 9th, 2016

Processing Time: 12 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

At a glance, our client’s Ph.D. in Optics and his extensive experience made him a perfect candidate for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). However, our strict protocol required us to conduct a thorough evaluation of his credentials before initiating the attorney-client contract. Unsurprisingly, we concluded that our client’s I-140 petition should be filed under EB-1A.

Our Well-Developed EB-1A Petition Packet:

Our EB-1A petition was composed of our client’s copious professional and academic achievements. We documented his publication record (10 scientific articles, a book chapter, and 10 conference proceedings), his citation count (nearly 300 citations), and his peer review experience (20 reviews conducted for various scientific journals). We further fortified our petition by including testimonials that our client had gathered from other leaders in his field of biomedical optics. We used these letters to support our argument that our client is an asset to the United States and that his research efforts significantly impact multiple progressive areas that benefit the nation. One of our client’s recommenders—a distinguished professor—agreed with our summation. He wrote, “His work is applicable in not only a variety of different branches of his field, but also in several other fields of scientific research. Specifically, [Client] has advanced the ability of those in the healthcare system to effectively detect and treat cancers, and he has developed advanced new technologies and methods for biomedical imaging.”

In Conclusion:

We have no doubt that our client’s impressive credentials and our carefully compiled EB1A presentation paved the way for petition approval. Due to Premium Processing, this happened in merely 12 days. Our firm recently filed an I-485 application (last step in the green card process) for our client, and we join him as he awaits a favorable outcome from the USCIS.
