Case Summary:

In this case, the client that we had the opportunity to work with was a Soccer Referee from Northern Ireland in the field of Soccer Refereeing.  He has performed in this high-pressure field at an international level, experience that has successfully prepared him to be a mentor and educator of others who wish to reach a similar level of success. His strong background in international competition refereeing has allowed his work to be particularly recognized by his peers and international media alike. He is especially well respected by his peers for his ability to mentor and develop younger referees.  His superior level of expertise was confirmed in the following quote from an independent recommender, He has been instrumental in improving referee standards and training around the world…. He is truly one of the world’s foremost experts on soccer refereeing, more recently soccer refereeing instruction, and has been consistently honored for this work.” It was our goal to prove that our client qualified for classification as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability given that he sought to enter the United States to continue work in the area of extraordinary ability, and that his exceptional expertise would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States. With the proof and documentation that we provided, his case was approved in 6 months.
