Case Summary:

A China-born research associate working in the field of molecular biology approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. It was our job to build a strong case for our client and we started off by evaluating his credentials. Once we affirmed that he was a suitable candidate for EB1A, we started collecting information related to his professional achievements and presented the following details to the USCIS:

  1. With a doctoral degree in animal virology, our client is focused on researching antiviral vaccine, antiviral treatment and liver cancer therapy. His work has also helped in the development of new vaccines and treatments for viral infectious diseases like influenza, porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome, and hepatitis C. Undoubtedly, his research aids the scientific community in the United States understand liver carcinogenesis and thereby helps in the development of precision therapeutics for liver cancer. This simplified our task in convincing the USCIS that our client’s continued presence in the United States is valuable to the nation.
  2. Our client also possessed notable citation and publication records. At the time of filing, his publications numbered 12 and they had garnered 125 citations. Moreover, he also had 2 patents to his name. Further, his competence in the field of molecular biology was evidenced in the 54 peer reviews he had conducted for a number of high-impact journals. These credentials highlighted the remarkable worth of our client’s research to the scientific community.
  3. The 6 recommendation letters our client collected from leading molecular biologists shed light on his international stature in the field. These letters were included in his EB-1A petition packet, and one of them stated: “Without his sustained research in liver damage, cancer, and related areas, research into treatment options for patients with liver cancer will surely suffer. We remain dependent upon his unabridged research for the continual advancements of liver damage and cancer research, and it is for these reasons that I am offering him my support today.”

The well-organized EB1A petition which we put together for our client was filed under Premium Processing (PP). This led to the rapid adjudication of the petition (it only took 8 days), and we join our client as he celebrates this significant milestone in the green card journey. We wish him well as he adjusts his status for permanent residence, and we thank him for choosing our law firm to represent his EB-1A petition.
