Case Summary:

With 5 peer-reviewed journal articles, 20 peer-reviewed conference articles (12 first-authored), 1 book, and 3 patents to his name, our client had clearly accomplished an impressive amount in the field of computer engineering. Despite his strong credentials, he needed North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him build and present an airtight EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) case on his behalf. Besides our client’s publication record, we also included the following details in his EB1A dossier:

  • We noted the whopping 62 times our client had assessed the work of his peers on behalf of well-known scientific journals.
  • The 187 times our client’s work was cited by other researchers was also listed—we used Google Scholar to confirm this number.
  • We also incorporated six recommendation letters contributed by other expert computer engineers. These letters advocated for the approval of our client’s EB1A petition and contained statements that described the importance of his work to the United States. For instance, a prominent professor had this to say: “His contributions are consistently well-received throughout the community and are of acute significance to related technological industries, guaranteeing that [Client’s] continued research will remain in high demand in the coming years.”
  • We also included supporting evidence such as our client’s doctoral degree and offer letter demonstrating his future employment at a top-tier American university.

As our client opted to file his EB1A petition using Premium Processing (PP), he received notification of case approval just 9 days after filing. PP is an add-on option offered by the USCIS for an additional $1,225. Instead of waiting 4-9 months for action to be taken on their petitions, those who file their cases under PP need not wait longer than 15 days.

We congratulate our client for overcoming this significant hurdle in the green card process, and we thank him for trusting us to not only represent his EB1A petition, but also his I-485 application. We join him as he waits for the USCIS to take action on his application.
