Case Summary:

Our client, a postdoctoral fellow from India, had initially retained us to help her secure the national interest waiver, which we successfully did. A little over a year after she secured NIW petition approval, she reached out to us again and asked to be evaluated for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). After carefully going through her updated credentials, we determined that she qualified for EB1A.

Building a customized EB1A petition:

We worked diligently to put together a unique EB1A petition dossier for our client. We customized the legal strategy based on our client’s background, expertise in the field of molecular biology, various achievements, and a myriad of other factors. With over 10,000 successfully petitioned cases in the bag, we knew just what to do to ensure that our client stood the best chance of getting her EB1A approved.

A major part of our client’s EB1A packet was the collection of recommendation letters signed by other expert molecular biologists. They provided ample proof that our client is an extraordinary researcher and that her work is of substantial importance to the United States. This is what one of them said: [Client’s] research has had a significant impact on both the basic and translational research aspects of cancer metabolism. I can attest that she is a leading scientist who is at the forefront of the field due to her exemplary skills in research and her vast knowledge of metabolic processes in cancer cells.”

We also shed light on our client’s accomplishments in the field—we listed the 90 citations gathered by her 7 published scientific articles, and the 28 times she assessed the work of her peers. Moreover, we detailed the importance of our client’s work to the US healthcare sector as it leads to new treatments for select cancers.

Besides putting together a solid EB1A case for our client, we also provided comprehensive advice in a timely manner and kept a close eye on any adjudication changes made by the USCIS. Although our client’s EB1A was issued a Request for Evidence (RFE), we responded to it in a quick and effective manner, which subsequently led to petition approval not long after. We are glad our hard work paid off and that our client is now one big step closer to green card success. We thank her for working with us and wish her the best as she continues to develop the field of molecular biology.
