Case Summary:

A technical staff member based in Oregon hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Once we were retained, our dedicated team initiated a comprehensive research on our client’s experience and expertise in order to devise a strong petition. With our help, his NIW was approved in less than 6 months.

After months of hard work, we managed to gather information regarding our client’s work on Electrical Engineering. We carefully reviewed and summarized his research focus on semiconductors. His work in this area is of great importance because it provides seminal advancement in multiple industries, including semiconductors and renewable energy. As an expert in the field, our client has assessed the work of his peers 3 times and has published 12 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored and 1 of them co-first authored) and a book chapter which have collectively been cited 57 times. We incorporated the related materials into the petition letter, and provided in-depth analysis to demonstrate the merit of our client’s endeavor.

Additionally, to support his NIW petition, we submitted 5 recommendation letters contributed by his peers. These letters played an important role in securing petition approval as they provided the USCIS with subjective evidence that our client is widely respected within the scientific community. For instance, one of his recommenders stated: “One method for the advancement of clean energy is through the use of photocatalytic systems, which researchers have been studying in relation to the energy conservation process. Photocatalytic systems work to generate hydrogen gas and concurrently reduce carbon dioxide, thereby improving both the solar-­driven hydrogen economy and the use of methane and methanol in fuel production. [Our client] is a notable authority on electrical engineering who has brought forth developments that greatly advance his field and its clean energy-­supportive objectives.”

We join our client as he celebrates the approval of his NIW petition and we thank him for retaining us to help him with his I-485 application.
