As a firm that prides itself in its work, we at Chen Immigration make it our goal to achieve as close to 100% approval rating for our clients’ cases. For EB-2 NIW cases we do this by highlighting our clients’ main contributions in their academic field of study. One of the main factors that determine the success of a case is the client’s number of citations. In this case we illustrated that our client was an exceptional research scientist and that they exhibited indisputable evidence to which they should be allowed to continue their research in the United States.

In this case we worked directly with the client to first prove that this client was seeking employment in an area of substantial intrinsic merit. As an advanced degree holder in the areas of Biophysics, we highlighted all of our client’s exceptional research along with other notable past work such as leading and organizing an undergraduate education curriculum. Additionally, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates noted the published works associated with this client’s research.
