Case Summary:

Nearly 10 months after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for a pulmonologist from India, the USCIS approved his petition. Our team put together a solid case that highlighted our client’s various achievements in the field of medicine. These are some of the notable details:

  • We listed the 49 peer-reviewed scientific journal articles, 31 abstracts, one book chapter and one book that our client had published.
  • Using Google Scholar, we confirmed that our client’s work had gathered 349 citations at the time of filing, which showcased the significance of his findings to other researchers.
  • We listed the nearly 3 dozen times our client judged the work of his peers and this served as testament to the fact that his opinions are respected by other medical experts.

Besides the information mentioned above, we also incorporated recommendation letters signed by our client’s peers. These letters served as subjective evidence that our client is a talented researcher and that his work on critical care medicine plays an important role in the improvement of the American healthcare system. This is what one of our client’s recommenders stated in his letter: “Few researchers have so tangibly altered hospital standards, and thus [Client’s] continuing work is of immeasurable benefit to the medical community.” Another recommender noted that our client’s “… impressive accomplishments give clear evidence that his work is inestimably valuable to medical practice in the United States and must continue.”

We are pleased that our hard work paid off and that our client is now one big step closer to a green card. We thank him for choosing us to represent his EB1A petition, and we look forward to helping him and his spouse with their I-485 applications (the final step in the green card process).
