Case Summary:

A principal algorithm researcher from India chose North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him with the first step in the green card process (filing an I-140 petition). After reviewing his credentials and asking him questions about his research, we were convinced that he was a good fit for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). Once an attorney-client relationship was established, we started gathering evidence to prove that our client met at least 3 of the 10 EB1A criteria set by the USCIS. These are the areas we focused on:

  1. Original Contributions: Using Google Scholar, we confirmed that our client’s findings had gathered as many as 192 citations at the time of filing.
  2. Authorship: The many years that our client has spent conducting research led to the publication of 8 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 2 book chapters, and 1 US patent.
  3. Judge of Others’ Work: We demonstrated that our client had conducted close to two dozen peer reviews by the time we filed his case. This impressive peer review record spoke volumes of his respected status in the field of electrical engineering and convinced the USCIS that he is a researcher of extraordinary ability.

Besides the 3 criteria listed above, we also included information on our client’s Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering as well as 6 recommendation letters. These letters were contributed by other influential members of the electrical engineering research community, one of whom had this to say about our client: “[Client’s] work in the research project discussed above provides valuable security enhancements that equip homeowners with the tools to intelligently monitor their homes remotely. By continuing his research in this area, [Client] is clearly helping to make American homes safer.”

Overall, we convinced the USCIS that our client’s work on enhancing iris recognition, biomedical, and home security systems addresses some of the US’ most pressing issues in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of these systems, which facilitates their long-term improvement. As he opted to file his case under Premium Processing, the USCIS sent him notification of case approval just 13 days later. We congratulate him for coming this far in the green card process, and we wish him the best as he uses our D.I.Y. Packet to prepare and file the I-485 application.
