Case Summary:

An Iranian electrical engineering expert living in Australia hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Before we countersigned the retainer agreement, we evaluated his credentials and asked him specific questions about his research. After determining that we could help him obtain the national interest waiver, we established an attorney-client relationship.

NAILG’s services included reviewing our client’s comprehensive research on smart grid technology and renewable energy. We determined that his work is aimed at renewable energy diversification using a cloud-based energy management system, which presents various economic and environmental benefits for the United States.

Our client’s consistent publication of journal and conference articles (17 in total) proved his mettle as a leading electrical engineer. His work had been cited a total of 231 times at the time of filing, a record which proved to the USCIS that his research is widely recognized and relied upon in the field of electrical engineering.

To make his NIW case even stronger, our client persuaded several of his peers to contribute recommendation letters. This is what one of them had to say about our client’s studies: “These represent some of the strongest sources of scientific research in the field, which speaks to the high quality and broad international relevance of [Client]’s research. While many researchers publish often in lower-tier journals, [Client]’s consistent publication in top journals is a powerful statement about his elevated standing in the field.”

We are pleased that we were able to convince the USCIS that our client will continue to serve the United States’ goal of combating climate change and making itself energy independent. This NIW approval is another example of our excellent record of helping our clients get closer to American permanent residency. Now, all that stands in the way of our client and his green card is immigrant visa processing (IVP). IVP is the final step in the green card process for applicants who are based outside the US.
