After I saw the good quality of work, I started to recommend your attorney to my friends.

On August 7th, 2018, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Associate in the Field of of Chemical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Chemical Engineering

Country of Origin: Iran

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New York

Approval Notice Date: August 7th, 2018

Case Summary:

Just 4.5 months after the North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed a customized EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for the Postdoctoral Associate from Iran, USCIS granted the approval of this I-140 petition. With our impressive success rate of over 10,000 approvals, there is no surprise that we have again helped our client achieve a successful I-140.

Our client holds M.S and Ph.D. degrees in the field of chemical engineering. His various achievements include 9 peer-reviewed journal articles (5 of them first-authored), 2 peer-reviewed conference articles, and 177 citations from researchers around the world. We also meticulously indicated the majestic 15 paper reviews conducted by him. The subjective evidence all proved that our client is an asset to the United States and he should be allowed to carry out his research in the country.

In order to stand out from the thousands of other NIW petitions sent to the USCIS, we also gathered a wealth of practical information pertaining to our client’s research. One of his most impressive achievement is that he had conducted a year-long study to produce hydrogen through steam reforming of methane in a fluidized bed membrane reactor. As a result, hydrogen producing technology has grown more popular as a means to limit the impact of global warming caused by the burning of fossil fuels.

Not just that, we also included recommendation letters signed by a handful of other well-known scientists, and one of the letters contained this convincing statement: “With a track record of successful innovation that has tangibly improved biofuel technology in the United States, he has made a name for himself as a leading voice on this essential research topic. I have seen how [client’s] work has broken new ground in the field and prompted other researchers to further those advancements”.

We thank our client for choosing us to represent his NIW petition. Our client now eagerly awaits a decision on his I-485 application, and we believe that our client deserves the US permanent residency because he has made critical contributions to the field of chemical engineering.
