Case Summary:

Not long ago, North America Immigration Law Group ( helped a postdoctoral associate from China file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. Our client’s extensive experience in the field of textile engineering has resulted in various publications, an impressive citation count, and other professional triumphs. We were tasked with compiling these accomplishments into a well-balanced EB-1A petition packet for our client, which we did efficiently and effectively. Part of the petition was composed of the following:

  1. Publication & Citation Record: When we filed the case, our client’s research in the field of textile engineering had amassed nearly 500 citations. Additionally, his investigations had produced 30 scientific articles, 8 conference abstracts, 1 book chapter, and 2 patents.
  2. Peer Review History: Our client has conducted a staggering 51 peer reviews for a variety of prominent scientific publications. As high impact journals only invite leaders in the field to judge the work of others, this impressive record clearly demonstrates the value of our client’s work to other researchers.
  3. Strong Advocacy: We needed as much support as we could get to ensure that our EB-1A petition was bulletproof. We counseled our client to reach out to other expert engineers and request for recommendation letters. To our delight, five experts agreed to help. Their letters were exactly what we needed to bolster our EB-1A petition packet. One of our client’s recommenders described his work as “…unquestionably important. Not only do the fiber and textile markets cover a significant share of the global manufacturing economy, but well- designed materials are also necessary for the safety of military personnel, those exposed to dangerous environmental conditions, and industrial workers, to name a few examples. [Client’s] textile engineering research is therefore a very valuable pursuit, and should be supported to the upmost degree.”

We are pleased that our diligent efforts and our client’s outstanding credentials convinced the USCIS to approve this EB-1A petition. This approval notice is yet another encouraging example of North America Immigration Law Group’s dedication to helping every client get as close as they want us to bring them to a green card.
