Case Summary:

A postdoctoral research scholar from China hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help her get one step closer to a green card. After confirming that we could help her, we got to work building a comprehensive EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) case on her behalf.

As we were tasked with convincing the USCIS that our client is a top plant scientist and that her research is beneficial to the United States, we carefully detailed her work on crop genetics and disease resistance. We worked diligently to prove that her findings address some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding how to map the quantitative trait loci of crops and how to find genes that give resistance to common diseases.

Besides discussing her work, we also highlighted her accomplishments in the field. For instance, we listed her ten peer-reviewed scientific articles, one accepted peer-reviewed scientific article, one book chapter, sixteen conference abstracts, and three patent applications. We also documented the 155 times her work was cited by other researchers as well as the 30 times she assessed the work of her peers.

Another way we proved to the USCIS that our client is at the top of her field was by incorporating recommendation letters that stated just that. These letters were contributed by other well-known researchers in the field of plant science, and they supported the legitimacy of our client’s research, contributions to the US, and background credentials. For instance, this is what one of the recommenders (a prominent professor) stated: “[Client’s] work has substantially accelerated the plant research community’s comprehension of disease resistance in this capacity, representing a phenomenal boon to the United States considering that corn is the nation’s most exhaustively produced agricultural component.”

We congratulate our client for securing a highly sought-after EB1A petition approval. We thank her for trusting us to help her come this far in the green card process, and we wish her the best in all her future endeavors.
