Success Stories: Personalized Legal Strategy Led to EB-1A Petition Approval for Engineer with 76 Citations in the Field of Learning and Optimization Engineering


Client’s Testimonial:

“Great news to me! And really thanks to your effort to help on my weak case!”

On February 6th, 2018, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for an Engineer in the Field of Learning and Optimization Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Learning and Optimization Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Engineer

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: February 6th, 2018

Processing Time: 8 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

With a doctoral degree and extensive experience conducting impactful research in the field of learning and optimization engineering, it is unsurprising that our client—an engineer from China— has amassed various accolades and achievements as a result of his research.

Building a solid EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) case:

Our team carefully analyzed our client’s credentials to establish a winning legal strategy. We determined that our best option was to highlight our client’s contributions to the field, his publication record, and the number of times he had judged the work of his peers. By the time we were ready to file our client’s case, these numbers stood at 76 citations, 9 publications, and 27 instances of peer review service.

Including additional evidence:

We also made it a point to help our client select several recommenders who could support his case. These recommenders were made up of influential researchers in the field, one of whom is a prominent professor. According to him: “[Client] is actively helping the United States economy through innovations that he has pushed to the forefront of his field. [Client] has made substantial contributions and improvements to his field in a way that benefits both national and global interests.” We have no doubt that the six letters our client obtained from his recommenders played an important role in securing EB1A approval. Besides these letters, we also discussed our client’s work on applying optimization theory to control, jump linear quadratic, and sub-surface inversion system problems.

Securing EB1A approval:

As we were able to convince the USCIS that our client’s research advances our understanding of algorithms and machine learning in the US, he was granted petition approval just 8 days later (the short timeline is thanks to Premium Processing).  We congratulate him for overcoming the first hurdle in the green card journey and we wish him the best as he adjusts his status for permanent residence with the help of our I-485 DIY Packet.
