Case Summary:

Described by a prominent assistant professor as an “eminently gifted researcher”, a postdoctoral researcher from India has worked tirelessly in the field of computer science for many years. His diligent efforts have resulted in significant contributions to the field, particularly in relation to advanced analytical methods to enhance the utilization of modern communication systems. His work has various societal benefits and aims at the development of new tools and methodologies to optimize decision-making processes in the design and operation of communication networks, online platforms, and marketplaces.

When he first contacted North America Immigration Law Group ( to assist him with an I-140 EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability), our team immediately set out to assess his academic and professional credentials. After we made sure that he was a good fit for EB1A, we proceeded to prepare the petition which contained the following information:

Publication & citation record: Our client has a productive publication record of 14 peer-reviewed scientific articles that had been cited 115 times at the time of filing the petition.

Review work: He had also conducted 17 peer reviews for leading journals in the field.

Letters of recommendation: Our client contacted several experts in the field of computer science to endorse his continued stay in the country. Their insight on our client’s contributions made his EB1A case stronger. One recommender wrote: “[Client] has such a high level of expertise that he is without a doubt a top computer scientist making contributions that far and away outstrip those of many of his fellow researchers.”

Our collective efforts led to EB1A petition approval just 8 days after it was filed. The swift adjudication timeline was a result of Premium Processing, a paid service offered by the USCIS that assures action will be taken on the case within 15 days. We congratulate our client for obtaining EB-1A petition approval, and we thank him for placing his trust in us to help him get one step closer to a green card.
