Case Summary:

Just one week after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for a postdoctoral research associate based in Tennessee, the USCIS approved his case. Our client hired us to help him not just with his I-140 petition but with his I-485 application as well.

With ample experience conducting electroceramics fieldwork, our client had the right credentials to qualify for EB1A. After carefully evaluating his qualifications, we determined that we would pay special attention to these three points in his EB1A petition:

  1. Citation Count: Using Google Scholar and other sites such as Scopus, we confirmed that our client’s work had gathered 165 citations at the time of filing. This impressive figure proved that our client had made significant contributions to his field and that his accomplishments are widely relied upon by other researchers.
  2. Publication Record: When we filed his case, our client had already penned a dozen articles, all of which appeared in top-rated scientific journals.
  3. Peer Review Experience: We also noted our client’s experience judging the work of his peers. By the time we were ready to file his EB1A petition, he had already assessed their work 25 times. This frequent review activity denoted our client’s influence in the field.

To reinforce our client’s case, we included recommendation letters obtained from other experts in the field of electroceramics. They vouched for our client and supported his bid to secure EB1A approval. According to one of them: “Discontinuing [Client’s] work in the United States would certainly hinder the progress of the overall field and make it difficult for scientists who depend on his findings to enhance their own research….as a leader in his research specialty, he should be given all concessions available for the uninhibited pursuit of his research.”

We worked intently to convince the USCIS that our client’s work on the characterization and improvement of electroceramic materials aids in the development of new electroceramics for commercial actuators and the improvement of energy storage devices in the US. Just one week after filing, the USCIS approved our client’s case. We congratulate our client on this victory and join him as he waits for the USCIS to take action on his I-485 application.
