Case Summary:

This EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) case involved a postdoctoral research fellow from India engaged in the field of molecular biology. She engaged the services of North America Immigration Law Group ( to help her obtain a green card. Thanks to Premium Processing, she received an approval notice 13 days after we filed the case on her behalf (on average it takes between 4-9 months). We are currently helping her file I-485 applications (final step in the green card process) for her and her spouse.  

North America Immigration Law Group’s Role:

As a law firm that has a 95.27% overall approval rate for EB-1A cases, we are well-trained to be thorough at what we do. As with all our cases, our legal services included helping our client narrow down a list of potential recommenders who could contribute strong recommendation letters in support of her EB-1A petition. The several letters that our client managed to gather were all provided by other influential molecular biologists. One of these experts wrote, “[Client’s] contributions to the field of molecular medicine thus far have granted her the honorable distinction of being at the vanguard of her research field, as she has constantly proven that she is able to perform at a level that is well beyond the ability of her peers.”

Our well-balanced EB1A petition packet also contained information on our client’s professional achievements (156 citations collected from her 18 published papers, and the 13 times she conducted peer reviews for scientific publications). These achievements furnished the USCIS with further proof that our client’s insights are greatly valued by others working in the field of molecular biology.

Favorable Outcome:

This EB-1A petition approval is another example of our firm’s commitment to helping every client get one step closer to their green card. We congratulate our client on this milestone.
