Case Summary:

A postdoctoral associate from China recently received EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval thanks to the team at North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG). Our client has consistently conducted exemplary studies that focus on the development of anti-obesity treatments. After establishing that his credentials made him a perfect fit for EB1A, an attorney-client relationship was formed and NAILG set out to draft the petition.

The EB1A petition packet included thorough details of our client’s academic and professional achievements such as his 20 peer-reviewed scientific articles published in high impact scientific journals. Moreover, the 155 citations accumulated from these papers proved to the USCIS that his findings are highly relevant and valuable to his peers. Furthermore, our client has also contributed to the field of neuroscience by actively providing peer review services to various journals—by the time we filed his case, our client had already completed 30 reviews.

As a testimony to our client’s credentials, we incorporated letters of recommendation signed by renowned neuroscientists who are familiar with his outstanding work. They urged the USCIS to grant our client EB1A approval in order for him to continue his research in the United States. They also highlighted the importance of our client’s research not just to the US, but to the field as a whole. One recommender wrote: “[Client] has proven himself, on multiple occasions, to be one of the brightest minds in clinical medicine…It would be of continued benefit to the American scientific community and the scientific world in general for [Client] to be granted the necessary permissions to pursue his research in the country.”

With the help of Premium Processing, our client received EB1A approval 2 weeks after filing. We thank him for hiring us and we wish him the best as he proceeds with the last step in the green card process: filing the I-485 application.
