Case Summary:

With a doctoral degree and extensive experience conducting research in the field of corrosion engineering, our client—a postdoctoral research associate from Indonesia—checked all the boxes when it came to qualifying for EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver). Based on Matter of Dhanasar, the framework used by the USCIS to determine NIW eligibility, our client deserved the national interest waiver.

As part of our winning legal strategy, we gathered a wealth of information pertaining to our client’s work on understanding and preventing corrosion in different alloys and environments. Our goal was to persuade the USCIS that our client’s findings improve the safety of medical devices, such as making implants less harmful. We then built a personalized NIW petition packet that focused not just on our client’s work, but his various accomplishments as well. For instance, we noted the 44 times his 10 peer-reviewed journal articles, 1 book chapter, and 7 conference articles were cited. We also detailed the 5 peer reviews he conducted for a couple of prominent scientific journals.

Furthermore, our client’s comprehensive NIW petition dossier contained a handful of recommendation letters signed by his peers. These letters offered subjective evidence that our client’s research is of great value to the US and that he should be granted the national interest waiver. Our client’s recommenders discussed his “broad influence within the scientific community” and “how abundantly he has contributed to the field.”

Our firm has successfully petitioned over 10,000 cases and we have unprecedented insight into how the USCIS adjudicates I-140 petitions. Not only do we know what they are looking for, we are also well-informed on adjudication trends and changes, which puts us in an excellent position to advise our clients on their I-140 cases. We put our knowledge and skills to good use and helped our client obtain NIW petition approval. We congratulate him on this win and thank him for retaining our I-485 services.
