Client’s Testimonial:

[Chen Immigration Team] is professional and efficient. I had a very nice experience having [Chen Immigration Team] as my attorney and I want to highly recommend them.

On September 9th, 2013 we received another EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) Approval for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the field of Precision Engineering (Approval Notice)

General Field: Precision Engineering
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher
National Origin:  China
Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)
State of Residence at the Time of Filing:  Ohio
Approval Notice Date: September 9, 2013
Processing Time:  7 months

Case Summary:

The client in this case was a postdoctoral researcher from China in the field of precision engineering. He had specialized in (1) advanced manufacturing, precision manufacturing, micro/nano fabrication; (2) optics; and (3) biomedical engineering. His work had resulted in at least 21 peer-reviewed scientific articles in leading journals, 1 invited article, 7 published conference proceedings and 2 patents.  At the time that his case was filed, his publications had accumulated at least 224 citations, clearly demonstrating that he had influenced his field and garnered international acclaim.  In addition, various experts and editors had consistently requested his service as a peer reviewer for 10 of the most elite international publications in his field of expertise. Of his accomplishments, one of his independent recommenders remarked, “[Client] has created an astounding number of first-time innovations. Even when he is building off of previous research, [client] is willing to develop his own systems and methods to perform the research, rather than using ineffective, outdated technology. As a result, he has succeeded where many others have failed. Optics systems, microfabrication systems, and microscopes would not be what they are today without the input of [client]. His extensive experience in precision machinery and related fields are coupled with his creative experimental designs, and this combination of instinct and education makes [client] an instrumental force in the research world.” It was our goal to prove that our client qualified for classification as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability given that he sought to remain in the United States to continue work in the area of precision engineering, and that his continued research would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States. With the proof and documentation that we provided, his case was approved in 7 months.
