Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) received an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) evaluation request from a Massachusetts-based research staff in the field of civil engineering. After carefully analyzing his credentials, we decided that we would take up his case. In summary, we looked at how his studies have provided significant breakthroughs in understanding and mitigating the negative environmental impacts associated with the building industry. From this, we were able to establish that our client’s studies benefit the United States by providing new guidelines and technologies for urban environment management and low energy buildings, and upon this, we premised our main argument for his continued stay in the country.

While preparing our client’s EB1A petition, we focused on showcasing his strengths and competitive position in the scientific community. In order to demonstrate the influence of his work, we highlighted his outstanding achievements, including:

  • 9 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored or co-first-authored) and 4 papers in conference proceedings.
  • 19 peer-reviews he had conducted for high-impact scientific journals.
  • Additionally, we noted his citation record— which amounted to 131 at the time of filing the petition.

To further bolster our client’s petition, we incorporated recommendation letters contributed by several industry experts. This is what one of his recommenders had to say about the impact of his work: “By improving the energy efficiency of buildings, the United States saves money and requires less fuel from environmentally harmful energy sources. Therefore, [Client]’s continued work in this area has numerous benefits to the nation, which is why I strongly urge an extension of his work.”

Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), we were able to help our client obtain EB1A petition approval in just 10 days. We congratulate him as he celebrates this win, and we wish him the best with his future endeavors.
