Case Summary:

“[Client’s] extraordinary work has advanced organic chemistry’s ability to perform efficient coupling, a technique used in four out of the top ten most sold pharmaceuticals in the United States, with available and inexpensive materials. The value, economically and scientifically, of [Client’s] work cannot be overstated.”

Taken from one of the five recommendation letters incorporated into our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, the quote above perfectly sums up the significance of our client’s research to the United States. Our client, a postdoctoral scholar from China, hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to help her get one step closer to green card success.

As part of our services, the EB1A petition we prepared for our client contained carefully worded summaries of her research on nickel-catalyzed cross-coupling and the functionalization of carbon-oxygen bonds, her experience serving as a peer reviewer for several scientific journals, and her notable citation record. At the time of filing, these numbers amounted to 20 peer reviews and 897 citations. We also listed the 17 published scientific articles penned by our client.

After putting together a strong EB1A petition for our client, we submitted it to the USCIS. As she opted for Premium Processing, she paid the USCIS an additional $1,225 to have action taken on her case within 15 days. True to their word, the USCIS adjudicated her petition in merely a week.

The approval of our client’s I-140 is an encouraging sign of the efficiency of our firm. We congratulate her on her EB-1A petition approval and wish her all the best as she continues to develop the field of chemistry.
