Case Summary:

Merely 9 days after we filed an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition on our client’s behalf, he received notification of case approval. Our client, an R&D scientist from India, hired us because he was aware of our excellent service and impressive approval rates. Because EB-1B is an employer-sponsored visa category, our client had to obtain his company’s full support before proceeding. His employer—a private company—agreed to lend their support and serve as his EB-1B petitioner. Once our client had signed and returned the contract and his company had supplied our legal team with the necessary paperwork, we immediately got to work building a strong EB-1B case. Here are some of the petition’s highlights:

  1. Publication Record: Our client’s extensive experience in the field of materials science has led to the publication of 9 scientific papers, all of which appeared in prominent journals.
  2. Citation Count: Thanks to sites such as Scopus and Google Scholar, we determined that our client’s work had collected a whopping 1773 citations when we filed the case.
  3. Research Evidence: We carefully reviewed our client’s research efforts on discovering and developing novel materials for thermal management applications. Based on what we understood, we established that his work improves the energy efficiency of many different machines used by American industries.
  4. Recommendation Letters: In a bid to make our client’s EB-1B case even stronger, we urged him to reach out to other influential materials scientists for recommendation letters. He returned with four strong letters, all of which contained statements akin to this one: “It is clear, given [Client’s] inventive research endeavors and well-cited publications, that he is a particularly worthy and influential member of the United States chemical engineering community. Chemical engineering is a complex field in dire need of [Client’s] admirable work; his depth of expertise would be difficult to replicate. I respectfully request that [Client’s] work in the United States be supported by the USCIS.” 
  5. Additional Evidence: We detailed a wealth of information that proved our client’s worth to the United States. For instance, we noted his M.S. in Chemical Engineering and M.S. in Management and determined that he is well-equipped with the knowledge needed to efficiently churn out pragmatic research results that benefit the United States.
