Case Summary:

An Indian postdoctoral associate based in Texas obtained her EB-1A approval in 3 months and 5 days. Our client requested PP (Premium Processing Service) for her I-140 petition, but received an RFE (Request for Further Evidence) less than a month after case filing. As part of our services, North America Immigration Law Group ( promptly took action and put together a strong response which answered all the challenges raised by the immigration officer. Ths USCIS subsequently approved our client’s EB-1A petition, bringing her one step closer to a green card.

In preparing our client’s EB-1A petition, we focused on the argument that retaining her in the United States significantly benefits the nation. We backed up our claims by presenting ample supporting documentations that showcased her extraordinary ability in the field of cancer biology.

At the time we filed her case, our client has published 11 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 1 book chapter. Her specialized research has focused on advancing the knowledge of cancer and other medical conditions with the objective of promoting new therapeutic developments; in fact, her research in the field of cancer biology has garnered substantial attention from researchers across the globe, and has contributed to the foundation of further studies throughout the scientific community. This confirmed her impact on an international scale by the 132 citations her work accumulated from leading researchers worldwide. Furthermore, her contributions to the field were apparent in the 2 reviews she conducted for highly esteemed journals.

We discussed several of our client’s research projects in detail and strengthened our case by incorporating recommendation letters signed by other prominent experts. According to one of them: “it is evident through the recognition and value of [client]’s research that she has quickly distinguished herself as one of the foremost authorities in the cancer biology field. Her record of achievement clearly justifies a future of similar success, guaranteeing that she will continue to provide the US medical community with such high quality and significant research for many years to come”.

With over 12,000 I-140 approvals, our firm is undoubtedly well-versed with the ins and outs of helping clients with their green card goals. We are extremely pleased that our hard work paid off, and we wish her the very best as our client continues to advance her field of endeavor here in the US.
