Case Summary:

A Chinese research associate whose studies are focused on processing and analyzing images through advanced noise filtering and target detection methods hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him obtain EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval. Our client’s impressive credentials—such as his doctoral degree and extensive work experience in the field of electronic engineering—assured us that we could help him accomplish his green card goals. After confirming that he met at least 3 out of the 10 EB1A requirements set by the USCIS, we countersigned the retainer agreement. The 3 requirements he fulfilled were:

  1. Published Material: Our client’s academic portfolio boasts 48 peer-reviewed scientific articles. His work has drawn attention from other leading experts in the field who believe that he is one of “the most adept electronics engineers working in the field today, and he has been responsible for some of the field’s most important discoveries in recent years.
  2. Recognition in the Field: His research addresses some pertinent issues in understanding how to improve imaging radar quality and performance—a topic that has many applications such as disaster monitoring and cancer treatments. The highly important nature of his work can be gauged from the recognition it has received from the scientific community, manifested in the number of times his publications have been cited: 406 at the time of filing the petition. A prominent associate professor noted this in his letter of recommendation: “…it would be nearly impossible to replace his skills and role in the field if he were forced to halt his research.”
  3. Peer Review Experience: Our client had already conducted 70 peer reviews for at least 10 scientific journals by the time we filed his EB1A petition. Only top-level experts in their field are invited to judge the work of others, so this frequent review activity demonstrated our client’s respected standing in the field.

We are elated that our client received EB1A approval and we thank him for working with us. Satisfied with our services, he has opted to retain us for his and his dependent’s I-485 applications. If their applications are approved, they will become permanent residents of the United States. We look forward to helping them attain their green cards and we guarantee our continued support throughout this process.
