Case Summary:

With a doctoral degree and ample experience working in the field of environmental engineering, a recent client of ours seemed like a good fit for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). In preparing her EB1A petition, our goal was to prove to the USCIS that she is an extraordinary researcher whose work greatly benefits the United States. How did we go about doing this?

For one, we listed the 20 times our client judged the work of her peers. This impressive record proved that she is well-known amongst other environmental engineers and that her opinions are held in high regard. We also listed the 118 times her 8 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 5 peer-reviewed conference articles were cited by dependent and independent researchers.

What other evidence did we include in our client’s EB1A petition dossier? We urged her to collect recommendation letters from her peers and she returned with 4 signed letters, all of which advocated for the approval of her petition. As an example, this is what one of them said about her and her work: “If the U.S. is to maintain the highest environmental standards in its petroleum and gas production, particularly given that the U.S. is one of the world’s largest energy producers and has increased domestic fossil fuel extraction significantly in recent years, it is essential for the U.S. to retain [Client’s] expertise in environmental engineering.”

Although our client had a strong case, the USCIS issued a Request for Evidence (RFE), to which we promptly responded. We successfully dealt with all doubts about our client’s qualifications, and we ae happy to list her case among our many success stories. We thank her for choosing us to represent her EB1A petition, and we wish her the best as she adjusts her status for permanent residence with the help of our D.I.Y. Packet.
