Case Summary:

Just 11 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed a personalized EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for a postdoctoral research fellow from India, the USCIS approved it. Our client is now one big step closer to a green card, and we thank him for trusting us to help him navigate the complex I-140 process. With over 10,000 approved cases in our portfolio, there is no doubt that we are experts when it comes to building strong, customized I-140 petitions for our clients. Not just that, we offer all our clients comprehensive advice on when to file the petition, the strongest points to include in the presentation, and much more.

In this case, we paid special attention to our client’s citation count, publication record, and peer review service. At the time of filing, these numbers stood at 156 citations, a dozen publications, and 32 peer reviews. Besides that, our client’s comprehensive EB1A petition dossier contained detailed summaries of his work on the design and development of novel pharmaceutical compounds, especially those used for the treatment of cancer and other serious diseases. Our team worked diligently to prove that our client’s findings are invaluable for the determination of efficacious drug treatments, which benefits the US pharmaceuticalindustry.

We also incorporated recommendation letters volunteered by other well-known medicinal chemists into the EB1A petition packet. These six letters played an important role in proving to the USCIS that our client’s work is beneficial not just to the US, but the field as a whole. This is what one of our client’s recommenders noted in his recommendation letter: “Through this work, [Client] has established himself as an invaluable figure working in medicinal chemistry. His sustained efforts in the United States aid his scientific realm, the pharmaceutical industry, and the healthcare sector more broadly.”

We congratulate our client for coming this far in the green card process, and we wish him the best as he continues to advance the important field of medicinal chemistry here in the US.
