Case Summary:

A research specialist based in Texas hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him secure EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval. Before we agreed to take on his case, we reviewed his credentials and asked him questions related to his research to confirm that he qualified for EB1A. Once we determined that we could build a solid case for him, we initiated an attorney-client relationship and got to work.

One of the first things we did was to advise our client on which experts in the field of molecular biology he should contact for recommendation letters. We made sure that the shortlisted candidates were familiar with our client’s 7 publications and/or had worked with him. Our client returned with 4 letters, all of which strongly advocated for the approval of his EB1A petition. As an example, this is what one of his recommenders had to say about his work: “… it is extremely important that a highly skilled researcher like [Client] be allowed to continue his exemplary work. With his broad influence in the field, [Client] exhibits qualities and research abilities that place him above most other researchers working in the same area.”

Besides recommendation letters, we incorporated information such as our client’s citation count and peer review experience into his EB1A petition packet. At the time of filing, these numbers stood at 152 citations and 33 instances of peer review service. We also made it a point to carefully review and summarize our client’s work on elucidating the mechanisms of the Hippo signaling pathway and its role in organ and tissue development. We concluded that his research addresses the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding the occurrence and growth of cancers, as well as the development of targeted treatments.

Once we put together a comprehensive EB1A petition dossier, our client elected to file it under Premium Processing, which greatly reduced the wait time for action to be taken on his case (he sliced it down from 4-9 months to 11 days). We congratulate him on this win and thank him for choosing us to represent his EB-1A petition.
