Another exceptional client that North America Immigration Law Group – WeGreened.comhad the pleasure of working with was a postdoctoral petroleum engineer from Iran working in the field of petroleum engineering.  He had made substantial contributions to the field of petroleum engineering, especially in the area of geostatistical reservoir modeling. We at North America Immigration Law Group – demonstrated that his continued employment in the field would not only benefit those in his field, but the citizens of the United States at large. To achieve success in this case, we submitted extensive documentation proving our client’s highly significant contributions to the field of petroleum engineering, including at least 21 peer-reviewed articles published in leading field journals and 15 conference and seminar presentations.
