Case Summary:

Referring to the research of a recent client of ours, a prominent professor at a prestigious American university wrote this in his recommendation letter:

“[Client]’s work is strengthening the United States’ position in terms of high tech manufacturing processes. In our increasingly sophisticated, technology-driven world, manufacturing techniques must evolve quickly to keep up with consumer demand. [He] has the requisite training and practice to answer this call and allow the United States to maintain its enviable position as a leader in these critical industries.”

In addition to the aforementioned recommendation letter, our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition packet contained five others. These letters were contributed by other experts in the field of mechanical engineering, all of whom showed their admiration for our client’s specialized research focused on the design and development of robotic mechanisms.

Apart from the letters, North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) incorporated the following information into our client’s EB1A petition: the 100 citations gathered from his 10 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 4 peer-reviewed conference papers. We also noted that our client’s innovative and cutting edge research has led to 1 US patent. Furthermore, our client’s noteworthy experience in judging the work of his peers (80 peer reviews conducted for 12 highly acclaimed international journals) was also detailed.

NAILG was successful in proving the original nature of our client’s studies and its significance to the United States. Nearly 10 months after the case was filed, the USCIS acknowledged the importance of our client’s work by granting EB1A approval. We are pleased to have assisted our client in securing petition approval, and wish him the best as he takes the final step towards a green card: filing the I-485 application.
