Case Summary:

A Michigan-based software engineer approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. Before establishing an attorney-client relationship, we conducted a step-by-step evaluation of our client’s case to determine if we could build a strong EB-1A case for him. Once we confirmed that we could, we got to work gathering information on his achievements. We left no stone unturned and presented the following information to the USCIS:

  1. With a Ph.D. in Computer Science, our client’s specialized research focuses on the development of computational frameworks that enhance the overall reliability and stability of mobile applications, such as sensor network systems and high-performance computing devices. Noticeably, his research helps the scientific community in the United States understand vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) and body sensor networks, which have applications in various areas including healthcare and transportation. Overall, we convinced the USCIS that our client’s continued presence in the United States is beneficial to the nation.
  2. Our client possesses commendable and noteworthy credentials. At the time of filing, his research had amassed 111 citations and he had a substantial publication record which included 6 peer-reviewed journal articles and 9 conference papers. Further, his expertise in the field of computer science was evident by the 15 peer reviews he had conducted for leading journals.
  3. The significance of our client’s contributions is also apparent in the contents of the 5 recommendation letters furnished by other experts. One such letter stated: “[Client’s] successful research career is underscored by his history of advanced training and mastery of computational techniques, the culmination of which have warranted his reputation as a skilled and reliable researcher.” These words are testament to the immense respect and influence our client has gained in the field of computer science.

The EB-1A petition packet we presented on behalf of our client provided conclusive evidence of his expertise in his chosen field. In order to expedite the process, our client decided to upgrade his EB1A petition to Premium Processing (PP) nearly 2 months after filing. This allowed him to have action taken on his case within 15 days of the upgrade. We join our client as he celebrates this win, and we wish him well as he continues to progress the field of computer science.
