Case Summary:

An associate researcher from India hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him obtain EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval. Our client is an expert in the field of environmental engineering and has ample experience of in the area of wastewater management. Over the years, he has studied the interactions between microbial communities in environments of varying complexity which immensely benefits the development of novel wastewater treatment facilities in the United States.

Our client’s academic portfolio:

In our well-prepared EB-1A petition to the USCIS, we highlighted our client’s various achievements such as the 11 peer-reviewed scientific articles and the 6 full-length conference papers that have resulted from his studies. As further proof of his influence as a leading environmental engineer, we listed the 132 times his findings were cited by his peers as well as the 16 times he conducted peer reviews for high impact scientific journals.

Recommendation letters signed by other influential members of the scientific community formed an important part of our petition packet because they shed light on the importance of our client’s work. As one professor in Belgium wrote of our client’s studies:

[Client]’s aptitude for microbial research continues to facilitate significant breakthroughs in wastewater treatment and highlights his status as one of the most important scientists in the area of microbial ecology. His work has directly led to the development of effective and inexpensive technologies that enable us to meet the needs of local water reuse while mitigating public health concerns.”

Responding to the RFE and securing petition approval:

Although our client had a strong case, the USCIS issued a Request for Evidence (RFE), to which we rapidly responded. We successfully dealt with all hesitations about our client’s credentials and qualifications, and we ae happy to list his EB1A case among our many success stories. Satisfied with our services, our client chose to retain us to adjust his status for permanent residence. We recently filed I-485 applications on behalf of him and his dependent, and we join them as they wait for the USCIS to take action on their cases.
