Case Summary:

The client that North America Immigration Law had the opportunity to work with in this case was a research scholar from Iran. His work had focused specifically on developing cutting-edge gene-banking and cryopreservation techniques for ensuring the long-term viability of plants and crops that are important as natural sources of medicinal compounds and food and sources of fiscal revenue for agricultural, horticultural, and farming industries. We successfully demonstrated that his continued employment in the field would benefit those in his field, as well as the citizens of the United States at large. In order for our client’s case to be successful, we submitted extensive documentation proving his highly significant contributions to his field, including 9 peer-reviewed journal articles (6 of them first-authored), and numerous conference papers. His publications had been cited a total of 60 times at the time we filed the case; nearly all of the citations were by independent researchers around the world, demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field. The importance of his work was confirmed in the following quote from an independent recommender, “[Client’s] work has revealed his mastery of such techniques as molecular marking, synthetic seed production, scanning electron microscopy, in vitro tissue culturing, and, of course, cryopreservation and gene banking. These skills are all indispensable for agriculture and horticulture scientist, and I myself rely on them for the purposes of my own work” Through extensive documentation, we were able to successfully argue that our client would serve the national interest to a significantly greater degree than others with similar education and experience. His NIW petition was approved in 7 months and 5 days.
