Case Summary:

For years now, our client has focused on developing environmentally-friendly energy-storage devices for clean energy purposes, and his various research accomplishments serve as testimony to his vast knowledge in the field of materials engineering. With over 2,974 citations gathered from his work—a rate significantly higher than those of other researchers in the field—he has also published 8 peer-reviewed scientific articles in some of the most prominent scientific journals.

When North America Immigration Law Group ( put together his EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, we focused on the aforementioned achievements. We also noted his work as a peer reviewer for various journals—at the time of filing, our client had already conducted 15 reviews.

Our client’s work is extremely beneficial to the United States, and to prove it, he obtained recommendation letters from several of his peers. These renowned scientists lent their support by commending our client on his important work. This is what a prominent professor at a well-known American university had to say about our client: “… [Client] is the first to make long molecular chains a practical reality for incorporation into molecular machines.” Another respected professor summed up the impact of our client’s research: “[Client’s] research likewise benefits the environment and health of our nation as well.”

Because he opted to file his EB1A under Premium Processing (PP), our client only waited 8 days to receive the nod of approval from the USCIS. We are pleased that our efforts led to EB1A approval, and we congratulate our client for coming this far in the green card process. We thank him for retaining our I-485 services and join him as he waits for the USCIS to take action on his I-485 application (the final step in the green card process).
