Case Summary:

A New York-based postdoctoral associate hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on her behalf. Our client, who was born in China, has many years of experience conducting research in the field of neuroscience.

Our legal team and support staff worked diligently to build a strong EB-1A case for our client. Part of our services included helping her narrow down a list of recommenders. We made sure that the shortlisted recommenders were experts in the field of neuroscience and that they were familiar with our client’s work, particularly her 9 published papers and 1 conference abstract. To our delight, our client returned with six signed letters, one of which contained this statement: “Her discoveries have provided her peers with breakthrough knowledge for the understanding of many neurological diseases. As dedicated as she is to her research, and as significant as her impact has been, there is no doubt that [Client] will continue to be a very important asset for our academic and medical community.”

Alongside these recommendation letters were details on our client’s work, which is mainly focused on the cellular and molecular mechanisms related to mental disorders, including schizophrenia, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, and Alzheimer’s disease. We proved to the USCIS that her findings address some of the US’ most pressing issues in understanding the underlying pathophysiological processes of these serious neurological conditions. We also documented the 135 times her work was cited by other researchers and the 32 times she was invited to judge the work of her peers.

The USICS only spent 8 days reviewing our client’s EB-1A petition before approving it. The reason for such a quick timeline is thanks to Premium Processing (PP), an add-on service offered by the USCIS that allows petitioners to have action taken on their cases within 15 days. We join our client as she celebrates this joyous occasion, and we thank her for retaining our I-485 services to help her adjust her status for permanent residence.
