Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group ( recently filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a postdoctoral fellow from China. Our client, who requested for Premium Processing, holds a Ph.D. in Neuroscience and Pharmacology and is active in the field of neuroscience.

We carefully demonstrated the significance of our client’s research, which explores alternative treatments for neurological disorders. We established that her findings accelerate other scientists’ work on diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and stroke, and that the benefits of her investigations are widespread. An expert in our client’s field, who contributed a letter supporting our client’s case, wrote, “Not only has she rapidly advanced the field of neuroscience, but she has also expanded our knowledge of treatment methods against this devastating condition. As I previously mentioned, this work is of particular importance to the United States, where hundreds of thousands of people suffer a stroke each year.” We included this recommendation letter, along with several others, in the petition packet submitted. Our client’s EB-1A petition also included comprehensive documentation of her research projects and professional record, which consists, in part, of 158 citations, 8 peer-reviewed publications, and experience judging 13 manuscripts written by other neuroscientists.

The EB1A petition packet we put together resulted in an approval after just eight days. We join our client in celebrating this good news, and we thank her for choosing our law firm to represent her case.
