“Thank you so much. This wouldn’t have been possible without your effort. This is wonderful.

General Field: Microbiology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Assistant

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: January 14th, 2019

Processing Time: 3 months, 18 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Nearly 4 months after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) for an Indian Research Assistant, the USCIS granted his case approval. To put together an impactful case, we carefully went through his credentials and submitted evidence that proves our client has extraordinary ability in the field of microbiology. Specifically, our client’s specialized research has focused on identifying structural details of major human pathogen and infection mechanisms.

With a master’s degree and extensive experience in biotechnology, our client is a highly qualified advanced degree scientist who has conducted at least 14 reviews for several highly distinguished journals, published 13 peer-reviews scientific articles and had a citation count of 140 at the time of filing. These numbers all confirm the elite level of his accomplishments.

Alongside the aforementioned information, we included 6 letters of recommendation signed by other influential researchers. These letters fully corroborate the independent and objective evidence that demonstrate our client’s original contributions. According to one of these recommenders: “[Our client] has accrued a broad range of skills. These include crystallography, protein optimization, protein purification, secondary structures analysis, ligations, and much more. This education, in conjunction with [our client]’s unique skillset, makes him an exceedingly valuable researcher within the field whose work has contributed considerably to an array of breakthroughs”.

With our rigorous methods of customizing our client’s petition and years of experience, we were able to make sure that our client stands out from the rest of the applications. Although a Request for Evidence (RFE) was issued during the process, our team successfully responded with all the required documents in an efficient manner and secured the final success. We congratulate him and look forward to helping him with the final step of the green card process (filing an I-485 application).
