Case Summary:

With extensive research experience and a doctoral degree, a China-born assistant professor of mechanical engineering hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him navigate the process of obtaining permanent residency in the United States. The fact that our client’s research addresses some of United States’ most pressing issues in understanding technological applications of fluid dynamics and his invaluable experience in mechanical engineering and aeronautics aided us in presenting his exceptional credentials to the authorities.

We commenced our work by gathering information about our client’s scientific achievements including his citation and publication count along with his peer-review experience. At the time of filing, our client had a total of 124 citations and 31 publications under his authorship, including 14 peer-reviewed journal articles and 17 peer-reviewed conference papers. His contribution to the scientific arena as a peer reviewer for highly acclaimed journals –having conducted nearly 23 reviews— was the feather in his cap of accomplishments.

Additionally, recommendation letters contributed by several professors and experts in the field helped us build the case in a more effective manner. The contents of one such recommendation letter is noteworthy. It stated: “I have not seen another individual with the ability to combine at such level the knowledge of engineering and fluid dynamics with the focus on mechanical design and multi-phase processes as the [Client] has mastered.” These words provided ample proof of our client’s strong credentials.

In order to expedite the immigration process, our client requested our firm to upgrade his case to Premium Processing (PP). It should be mentioned here that this decision facilitated a quick response from the immigration authorities and our client’s case was approved within 12 days. We are extremely happy about the EB1A approval that our client received, and we strive to maintain the same professional standards as we help him with the I-485 application process. We congratulate him on his success and wish him the very best in all his future endeavors.
