Case Summary:

[She] is particularly essential because her successful investigations into the causes of these disorders have direct influence on the future of this field’s research. Because of her history of scientific success, her expertise and continued study provide the scientific community with great advantages.

The above lines were excerpted from one of the six recommendation letters incorporated into both our client’s personalized EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) and EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition packets. These letters succinctly explained why our client’s continued stay in the United States is in the best interest of the country. The reason our client filed two I-140 petitions is because she wanted to increase her chances of securing petition approval. Thanks to the unique EB1A and NIW petitions which we put together for her, both I-140 petitions were approved less than 2 months apart.

Our client, a postdoctoral fellow from China, is an extraordinary researcher who has significantly progressed the field of biochemistry. When putting together her NIW and EB1A petitions, our goal was to highlight our client’s strengths and emphasize the importance of her work. We did this by detailing her research on biochemical mechanisms underlying serious medical conditions such as HIV and schizophrenia, her experience serving as a peer reviewer for esteemed scientific journals, and her noteworthy citation record. At the time of filing, these numbers amounted to 31 peer reviews and 149 citations. We also listed the 12 peer-reviewed scientific articles authored by our client.

The approval of both our client’s I-140 NIW and EB1A petitions is an encouraging sign of the effectiveness of our firm’s customized legal strategy. With over 10,000 approvals, our firm is undoubtedly armed with the knowledge and skills needed to build successful I-140 petitions for all our clients. Part of what makes us so successful is that we come up with unique strategies based on each client’s background, field of expertise, and accomplishments. Further, we have unprecedented insight into how USCIS officers adjudicate cases and have the ability to provide our clients with comprehensive advice surrounding their individual petitions.

Overall, we are pleased that our client placed her trust in us to help her get one step closer to green card success. We thank her for working with us and wish her the best as she continues to advance the field of biochemistry.
