Case Summary:

A New York-based postdoctoral researcher with a doctoral degree procured from an American institute approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) for help with an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. Upon careful evaluation, we determined that he had years of expertise in the field and solid credentials which qualified him as a suitable EB1A candidate. Soon after, we countersigned the attorney-client agreement and immediately concentrated on building a strong case for him.

Our client’s research is focused on protein separation technique development and biosensor design. His in-depth research helps the American scientific community obtain a better understanding of the most sophisticated techniques in electrophoresis, protein separation on surface and related fields. We worked diligently to prove to the USCIS that our client’s contributions positively impact the American healthcare industry.

We also made it a point to showcase our client’s publication record and citation count: 6 peer-reviewed articles published in high impact journals and 84 citations. Another striking point in our client’s impressive portfolio was the 17 peer reviews he had conducted for top-tier journals. This conclusively positioned him as a frontrunner in the field of analytical chemistry. Additionally, we noted that he had presented at various well-known national and international conferences.

To fortify our client’s case further, we instructed him to collect recommendation letters from other experts. Our client successfully collected 6 such letters, all of which were incorporated into the EB1A dossier. One of his recommenders, an acclaimed professor of chemistry stated: “[Client] is the type of outstanding researcher that makes contributions and discoveries that help drive technological innovation, which positively impacts the U.S. economy. [Client] has demonstrated his ability to continue to produce beneficial scientific research and innovative contributions…….I am convinced that [Client’s] exceptional research work has seen impressive successes and he has achieved this premier status using his extraordinary ability in analytical chemistries technologies, pioneering complex algorithms and cellular functions. He has been a researcher of the highest caliber, making original scientific contributions vital to the betterment of researchers everywhere.”

Positive statements such as the one above confirmed our client’s respected position amongst other top-rung analytical chemistry experts.

After assembling a well-structured EB1A petition, we mailed it to the USCIS. We raised a service request on behalf of our client almost 1.5 years after filing the case. Four months later, our client’s case was approved (he waited to total of 19 months and 11 days). In spite of the long wait, we are happy that we could assist our client in securing EB1A approval. We thank him for working with us and send him our best wishes as he continues to progress the field of analytical chemistry.
