Success Story: EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for a Postdoc Researcher in the field of Virology and Immunology

Client’s testimonial:

After consulting with a couple of attorneys, I decided to go with [Chen Immigration Team] for my EB2-NIW application. [Chen Immigration Team] worked with a great professionalism with me from the beginning to the end. They drafted letters within a week for me as promised in the attorney-client retainer agreement and never delayed anything throughout the whole process. We went back and forth a couple of times until both parties agreed. With [Chen Immigration Team], you will get everything done within 5 months. I am so glad I selected them as my attorney and It took only 5 months and 10 days to get my NIW petition approved from the date I signed the retainer agreement with them. Unless one of my recommendation/reference letters got delayed, it could have been only 4 months for the whole process.

On December 3rd, 2012, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for a Postdoc Researcher in the field of Virology and Immunology. Approval Notice)

Case Summary:

The typical processing time for an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition is 4 months. In order to facilitate the best possible chances for a swift approval in each case, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates are meticulous in our methods for gathering evidence. For this reason, we were able to secure approval for this petition in only 70 days, or 42% faster than typical cases.

In this specific case, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates worked directly with the client to procure the best possible evidence in order to establish support for each of the claimed criteria. First, we worked towards proving that this client was seeking employment in an area of substantial intrinsic merit. As this client had achieved several advanced degrees, specifically a Master of Science in Botany, and a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology, we highlighted these accomplishments and dedication towards scholarly pursuits. Additionally, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates noted the published works associated with this client’s research. Specifically, we highlighted the number of peer-reviewed scientific articles this petitioner had written (10), and the exceptionally high impact these works have had on the scientific community gathering a citation record of at least 115 citations by prestigious institutions both nationally and internationally.

Secondly, we gathered evidence to support the proposed benefit of this client’s work and its overall national benefits. Dedicating time towards gathering support for the specific contributions this client has made to their field of endeavor, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates worked diligently with the client to secure eight recommendation letters from experts in numerous fields of interest. In order to provide the best possible associated evidence, we drafted these letters that were then reviewed, edited, and signed by each recommender providing significant testimony in reference to the proposed benefits of the client’s ongoing research.

Finally, we proved that the national interest would be adversely affected if a labor certification were required. As this is arguably the most daunting task associated with filing EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petitions, it is important that each case establishes evidence directly corresponding to their claimed criteria. We at Chen Immigration Law Associates believe in gathering evidence in such a manner that each criterion is so well supported that the adverse effects associated with an unfavorable ruling are insurmountable. With significance of evidence reinforced through the testimony of field experts, analytics of published impacts derived from top analytic software; and evidence of field contributions and their direct relation to the national interest, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates worked diligently to provide the best possible chance for a swift approval in this case.

Using this proven strategy, while correctly articulating the importance surrounding this client’s valued work towards the national interest, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates were able to secure approval for this petition on December 3rd, 2012.

With this in consideration, it is important to emphasize that the processes and expertise practiced by Chen Immigration Law Associates. Not only do we develop the best possible strategies for each case, but we execute these strategies with the utmost effectiveness!
