Client’s Testimonial:


“Thanks for the notice of case approval. I knew my citation number was around the borderline for EB-1A cases, and the encouragement from North America Immigration Law Group helped me make the decision to file the case. The attorneys were very quick at responding to my questions, and they addressed my concerns adequately […] The DIY package for I-485 received after the I-140 also helped a lot in streamlining the preparations for AOS and it saved me a lot of time. I will strongly recommend North America Immigration Law Group to my friends. Thanks!”

Case Summary:


A senior chemist from China engaged the services of North America Immigration Law Group to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. Our client, who is working in the field of chemical engineering, specializes in colloid science and nanotechnology. We demonstrated the significance of his work to the United States energy sector, particularly on how to obtain “stranded” oil and access natural gas resources.

In preparing our well-thought-out petition, we detailed our client’s numerous research projects and highlighted his peer review experience. When we filed his EB-1A case, our client had conducted 60 peer reviews for multiple high impact journals. We proved that his peer review experience reflected a level of expertise that places him among the leaders in his field. Other expert chemical engineers agreed with our claim and offered letters of recommendation to support his I-140. One of them testified that “[Client’s] scholarly record and activities, combined with his considerable success as a researcher, are clear and compelling demonstrations of his unparalleled expertise in the field.”   

With a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering and 122 independent citations to his 14 published papers, our client was a suitable candidate for EB-1A. Thanks to Premium Processing, the USCIS only took three days to adjudicate his case. We congratulate our client on this occasion and wish him well in his continued research.
