Case Summary:

With 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) and 10 peer-reviewed conference papers (2 of them first-authored) under his belt, there is no denying that our client has made a name for himself in the field of electrical engineering. Furthermore, his doctoral degree has armed him with the skills and knowledge needed to continue conducting impactful fieldwork.

When he decided to become an American permanent resident, our client (a senior circuit design engineer from Iran) hired North America Immigration Law Group (NALG) to help him accomplish this goal. One of the first things we did was ask him questions related to his research and evaluate his credentials. Only once we confirmed that we could help him obtain EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval did we countersign the retainer agreement. In preparing our client’s NIW petition, these are some of the points we focused on:

  • We listed the 140 citations collected from his 17 publications.
  • We highlighted his work on improving the speed and accuracy of analog-digital converters, and on improving the performance of photonic devices.
  • We proved to the USCIS that his research results have directly contributed to the technological advancement of hardware efficiency, and therefore to the entire sphere of processing technology.
  • We demonstrated that our client is contributing to the United States’ technology sector, and improving researchers’ abilities to advance digital signal processing, medical imaging, speech recognition, and other advanced technologies.

To back up the points mentioned above, we included recommendation letters signed by other well-known researchers in the field of electrical engineering. This is what one of them said about our client and his work: “[Client’s] background corroborates his excellent research achievements with circuit design engineering. His continued research is paramount to continued developments for the field.”

We congratulate our client for obtaining petition approval, and we thank him for retaining our I-485 services. As we wait for the USCIS to take action on his I-485 application, we extend our client our best wishes as he continues to progress the field of electrical engineering.
