Case Summary:

A month after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed this client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, he decided to upgrade his case to Premium Processing (PP). PP is a paid service offered by the USCIS that guarantees action will be taken on the case within 15 days. True to their word, we received notification of EB1A approval less than a week later.

With a publication record that comprises of 9 peer-reviewed scientific articles and conference papers, along with 5 granted US patents, our client has undoubtedly proven that he is a top-notch researcher who has made significant contributions to the field of electrical engineering. Additionally, the fact that his findings have been cited 203 times further proves the significance of his work to other researchers. Our client also makes regular contributions to the field by doing review work for esteemed journals (at the time of filing he had conducted at least 14 peer reviews), and presiding at conferences.

We worked diligently to convince the USCIS that our client’s studies help in understanding computer hardware research and design by focusing on the creation of advanced methods for data storage in computer hardware. His research benefits the United States as it promises to improve magnetic storage devices. According to a well-known assistant professor: “[Client]’s work is therefore representative of the current industrywide interest in preparing for the next generation of data storage devices.” Another researcher succinctly summarized the need to let our client stay in the US by noting: “The great progress that he has already made in this field shows the need for his continued input. His record of achievement more than justifies the expectation of many future benefits as long as he is permitted to conduct his research uninterrupted.” These statements were taken from their respective letters of recommendation, which they contributed in support of our client’s EB1A petition. Two other industry experts did the same, and we have no doubt that their collective support lent a hand in case approval.

In the end, the USCIS was persuaded to approve our client’s petition without issuing a Request for Evidence (RFE). We congratulate our client on this win, and wish him the best as he proceeds with the I-485 application with the help of our DIY Packet.
