Case Summary:

A prominent scientific associate from China hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. The approval of his petition is a joyous occasion not just for our client, but our firm as well. The USCIS issued a Notice of Intent to Deny (NOID) but thanks to our stellar legal team and support staff, we convinced the USCIS that our client deserved to have his petition approved. Our diligent efforts propelled our client a step closer to his green card and all that stands in his way is the I-485 application.

Building a strong EB-1A case:

Part of our services included compiling a wealth of information on our client’s work in the field of computational biology. Amongst other things, we documented his doctorate in microbiology, the 18 publications to his name, and the astounding 2,332 citations gathered from his findings. Furthermore, we noted the 32 times he assessed the work of his peers for various high-impact scientific journals. To make his petition even stronger, we encouraged him to reach out to other experts working in the field and ask them to contribute recommendation letters. Not only did these experts support the approval of our client’s EB-1A petition by signing off on strong testimonials, they also briefly discussed his work on the function, structure and interaction analysis of RNAs and proteins. . According to one of these experts: “Considering the speed with which [Client’s] work has gained such an impressive reputation, and his repeated field accomplishments, one can only expect great bioinformatics advancements from his continued research.” Another recommender stated that “His professional record is outstanding, and every sign points to a continuation of excellence. Considering the broad applicability of bioinformatics, especially in such vital endeavors such as genomics, bioengineering, and pathology, it is obvious that leading bioinformatics researchers and their work must be supported. [Client] is a notable figure within this group of distinguished scientists, and his work is crucial to maintaining the field’s progress.”

We are pleased that we convinced the USCIS to see the value that our client’s work offers to the United States. We congratulate him on this achievement and thank him for working with our law firm.
