Success Stories: PP Allowed an Assistant Professor in Nevada in the Field of Mechanical Engineering to Receive EB-1A Petition Approval in 8 Days


Client’s Testimonial:

“I was referred to NAILG by a colleague who had his case successfully handled by this firm. When I contacted NAILG for the evaluation of my case, they were very responsive and clearly highlighted the options I had, detailing pros and cons of each, and helping me in deciding the best course of action. Throughout the process, I have especially appreciated the very professional relationship they have displayed from the beginning of our interaction. They have always been extremely timely in their response and had a clear answer to any questions I might have had, an answer that I felt I could trust. After seeing the carefully drafted petition letter, I was impressed with how the structure of the support letters from my references was used to construct a very clear and compelling case, along with all the supporting documentation. I can see how thorough and competent NAILG has been in the process, and I was very happy to retain the firm to also handle my I-485 case, without hesitation. I am overall extremely satisfied with their work. I was also happy to recommend NAILG to several of my colleagues. Thank you very much NAILG for the good news and all your work on this case.”

On January 6th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for an Assistant Professor in the Field of Mechanical Engineering (Approval Notice).


General Field: Mechanical Engineering

Case Summary:

Just 8 days after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for an assistant professor from Italy, the USCIS approved his petition. The reason for such speedy adjudication is thanks to Premium Processing (PP), an option offered by the USCIS that guarantees action to be taken on a case within 15 calendar days. Despite costing $1,225 more, PP is an excellent option for petitioners who are reluctant to wait between 4-9 months for the USCIS to take action on their petitions.

“As might be expected from this remarkable record, [Client] has quickly come to occupy a leading position in his area of specialization.” –Professor, South Korea

The quote above was taken from a recommendation letter contributed by one of our client’s five recommenders. Backing up this statement were our client’s citation count, publication record, and peer review experience. At the time of filing, these figures stood at 815 citations, 35 publications, and 140 peer reviews.

“The next generation of smart robotics science and industry depends on the work in which [Client] is engaging.”– Professor, United States

Supporting the statement above are details on our client’s work in the field of mechanical engineering. Thanks to the comprehensive research summary which our client sent to us so that we could better comprehend his work, we were able to conclude that his research focuses on designing and modeling of smart materials. After carefully reviewing his findings, we convinced the USCIS that his research addresses some of the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding biomimetic mechanics and locomotion.

We are extremely pleased that our client secured EB1A petition approval, and we thank him for retaining our services to help him file an I-485 application. As the final step in the green card process, an approved I-485 means that our client will become an American permanent resident. We look forward to receiving more good news from the USCIS and we wish our client well as he continues to progress the field of mechanical engineering.
